Special Needs Placement

Parents seeking to find the most appropriate educational, transitional, or living environments for their child with disabilities, can take comfort in knowing that there are exceptional places throughout the country to serve this population’s diverse needs.

Specialized Boarding Schools
Every parent’s hope is that his or her child will flourish in a school near home. For some of our clients, however, social or learning challenges have made it difficult to find an educational environment where he or she can develop academic skills, self-esteem, friendships, and passions, all in one place. Specialized boarding schools meet the needs of these students by providing targeted supports and a variety of opportunities both in and out of the classroom.

Young Adult Transitional Programs
Not every young adult is ready or appropriately suited for a traditional college experience following high school. However, each one is ready to begin building an adult life outside of his or her parents’ home, even if assistance is required! Young adult transitional programs are designed to provide students with the level of support they need to achieve academic or vocational success, to develop independent living skills, and to navigate the social world. The goal of each of these programs is for young adults to become successful, independent adults.

Longer-term supportive living programs
For adults who require longer-term, or even lifelong support, these programs provide varying degrees of oversight, along with life skills training, vocational support, and a community of peers. Opportunities for work and social events help clients create a productive and fulfilling adult life, while ensuring families that their loved one is safe and happy.
