Programs for Individuals with IDD 

Individuals with intellectual and development disabilities (IDD) can learn to read if provided with systematic, intensive, and ongoing instruction. Unfortunately, individuals with IDD are often denied high quality reading instruction. Learning to read will improve an individuals opportunities and life choices.​


All incoming clients must provide prior testing so we can ensure they meets criteria as an individual with an intellectual or developmental disability.  Prior testing includes evaluations such as Full Individual Evaluation (FIE), a private diagnostic psychological or neuropsychological evaluation, or a medical doctor’s official diagnosis of an intellectual or developmental disability.


​Our programs for individuals with IDD are grant funded. Please be advised that the program parameters are subject to change without prior notice, as they are dependent on the availability and allocation of funding.
