Program 1

Therapeutic Summer Program

Our therapeutic summer program:  it provides daily physical, occupational and speech therapies, educational and fun activities, and weekly field trips. The camp operates Monday through Friday during the summer months from 9am to 3pm. We serve children ages 1 - 15 who have severe and mulitple disabilities.  In 2010 we will serve 45 from 3 counties on South Carolina. We allow graduate PT, OT and SP students and nursing students are various levels to observe and gain some hands on experience.

Funding Needs

Currently we need funding for the charter school.  While as a public school, federal, state and local money is provided, it only covers about 2/3 of what the school needs in order to serve these children appropriately and maximize their potential.
