Special Care provides year-round before and after care for students, ages birth to 21 years of age. We also provide all-day summer and holiday programs for school-aged students. In typical childcare settings, a child would "age out" of their program around 10-12 years of age, when the child could presumably be of age to stay by him/herself.
Special Care provides on-site physical, occupational, speech and behavioral therapy to our students. Therapy is critical for children with special needs in order to reach their full potential. With 11 therapists, students are able to receive high-quality therapy when they attend Special Care. Therapists are able to work with teachers to be able to bring what a student is working on in therapy to the classroom. Read More
Inside Special Care
Learn About Our Therapies
Occupational Therapy focuses on helping children with a physical, sensory, or cognitive disability be as independent as possible in all areas of their lives. Occupational Therapy can help children with various needs improve their cognitive, physical, sensory, and motor skills and enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.
Speech Therapy focuses on receptive language (or the ability to understand words spoken to you) and expressive language (or the ability to use words to express yourself). It also deals with the mechanics of producing words, such as articulation, pitch, fluency, and volume.
Physical Therapy is often recommended to children who have experienced injuries or who have mobility problems from an illness, disease, or disability. Physical Therapy improves quality of life, increases range of motion, strength, coordination, mobility skills and balance.
Special Care provides on-site Behavioral Therapy to students in need. Our Behavioral Therapists use Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to bring about meaningful and positive change in behavior of children, primarily on the Autism Spectrum.
