|For more than 64 years, Heartspring has pioneered many breakthroughs for individuals with special needs. Today, Heartspring serves children with varying degrees of disabilities through Heartspring School, the Growing Place and the Hearing Center.|
Heartspring is a nationally known school that serves children, ages 5 to 21, with multiple, severe disabilities. A majority of students enrolled have mental retardation in some degree along with other disabilities such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy, hearing and/or vision impairment or behavior disorders. Students receive special education and residential programming, as well as a full range of psychological and therapeutic services.
At Heartspring, children can find the help they need to communicate with the world around them. It is a place where every program is designed to meet the child's needs. The school uses an interdisciplinary approach to teaching the children. It is possible for one child to have up to 14 professionals involved in his or her care. These professionals include teachers, paraprofessionals, residential treatment providers, psychologists, medical staff, nutritionists, speech/language pathologists, physical and occupational therapists, a developmental pediatrician and of course, the student's parents. The goal for all Heartspring students is to transition them to a less restrictive setting whether that be home, a group setting or the public school setting. Heartspring teaches the life skills that children need to become active members of society.
