Parent Resources

Helpful Resources

Each year the school has expanded its enrollment in order to meet the needs of the families requesting admission to the program. In 1992, the school responded to the request of parents and offered a full day program for the first time in order that these children’s educational  and therapeutic needs be better met. The school maintains a strong relationship with its families and has experienced support from parents and community members in developing the program over its twenty years.
