WHAT A YEAR 2020 WAS. From March to August, our teachers and therapists worked hard to educate and support our kids like Nick through Google Classroom, other online strategies and phone meetings with families. We were back to our regular onsite program in September but here we are in January again engaged in virtual learning. Kids are resilient and ours are up for the challenge, but we can’t wait to provide the face-to-face interaction that is so important for children with special needs!

Can't wait for us all to be in a better space and Bingo can open!
