Our Developmental Day School provides a comprehensive educational and therapeutic program for children ages 3-10 who have multiple disabilities, moderate to severe developmental delay, complex care needs or medical needs. As the Agency’s original and longest running program, the school has been in existence since our opening in 1973. We are licensed by both the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care.
The Day School has a long standing reputation in the community as being experts in providing the following: specially-designed instruction, flexible and creative curriculum aligned with the state frameworks, inclusive therapeutic services and nursing/medical attention in the classroom. We are an 11 month program, with consistent scheduling and staffing year round. The school has rolling admissions, so that eligible students can be enrolled at any time throughout the year.
We strive to provide our non-traditional learners with as typical a school experience as possible. We offer a stimulating classroom setting combined with an individualized approach to learning. This allows students many points of access to the curriculum and allows students to progress at their own pace. In addition to varied learning opportunities, students are also encouraged to express their unique personalities, engage in social activities with their peers and most of all… have FUN!
Our goal is to work together as a team with families and school districts to provide an exceptional educational program that maximizes each student’s independence, unique learning needs and help them achieve their greatest potential.
