Our Staff


Our staff works as a team to ensure that your student’s developmental needs are incorporated into his/her therapeutic/educational plan, and to ensure that success is achieved at an accelerated rate in a gentle, loving, yet firm environment.

Our staff consists of licensed therapists, counselors and teachers who all work together as a team throughout the school day. Depending on the activity, the student:teacher ratio ranges from 1:1 to 4:1, to ensure that each student is receiving consistent interventions and instruction, utilizing the best techniques and tools to accelerate functional change.

Our goal is to quickly identify and fill the development gaps that currently hinder your child’s success, so they can return to a more mainstream learning environment. Our staff is an integral part our success. They are experienced, talented, and passionate.
