Children’s Learning Center
Established in 1948, our school has a well-earned reputation for outstanding education, evaluation and treatment services for children from birth to age 21 with a broad range of mild to severe disabilities, including speech/language delays, physical disabilities, and mental retardation. Each child's program is individualized and closely monitored by a team of multidisciplinary professionals. Preparation for inclusion, mainstreaming and maximum independence in the community is emphasized.
The CLC has a strong commitment to serving the entire family - mothers, fathers, siblings and grandparents. Family meetings, tours, special events, and social work services are available and designed to support the family network. A truly caring staff of special education teachers, clinicians, other professionals and support staff are ready to assist in every way possible.
The Children’s Learning Center is the school component of the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County, a non-profit organization. The school serves over 250 students, ranging in age from 18 months to 21 years of age, and coming from most school districts across Nassau County, a few from Suffolk County, and many from the boroughs of New York City. The classes are all comprised of low student to teacher ratios, i.e., 12:1:4; 12:1:2; 9:1:3; or 6:1:2. Every student enrolled in the school has an IEP (or IFSP for children receiving early intervention services) as a result of a CPSE/CSE meeting.
