Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists?
We help children and adults with disabilities make their place in our community. We provide in-home speech and occupational therapy for children 0-3 years old. Our clients and families receive intervention services that will help develop communications skills, sensory needs, and fine motor skills. For adults, the staff of New perceptions services a wide array of intellectual and physical disabilities, supporting clients onsite with our workplace center and in the community via our job coaching program. We also have an adult learning center where adults can participate in art, music, and life skill activities.
