Everyone can

Mission

We are a non-profit organization. Our goal is to provide every individual with special needs the support, friendship and inclusion that they deserve.

The term Special Needs is a short form of Special Education Needs and is a way to refer to students with disabilities. The term Special Needs in the education setting comes into play whenever a child’s education program is officially altered from what would normally be provided.

More narrowly, it is a legal term applying in foster care in the United States, derived from the language in the Adoption and Safe Families Act. It is a diagnosis used to classify children as needing “more” services than those children without special needs who are in foster care.

In the United States, special needs is a term used in clinical diagnostic and functional development to describe individuals who require assistance for disabilities that may be medical, or psychological. For instance, the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

Melissa and her staff are able to work on our sons’ ABA goals in a natural environment (ex. our home, school, in the community). They’ve taught our sons natural language – they even use slang now and understand sarcasm!”
