Adler Center For Special Needs
The Adler Center For Special Needs, established in 2004, was re-named thanks to the generosity of Ann Dorman Adler and Kenneth Adler. The Adler Center provides a comprehensive range of programs and services for participants starting at age 3 through adults with developmental disabilities including learning disabilities, language delay, ADHD, and Autism spectrum disorders. We offer a wide range of high-quality programming as well as inclusion opportunities during summer camp, vacations and school holidays.
All programs are open to the public.
If additional supervision and guidance is required, we offer specialized group programs with a low participant-to-staff ratio. Our dedicated staff is comprised of NYS Certified Teachers, Social Workers, Psychologists and Teachers' Assistants with many years experience working with children and teens with disabilities.
The Adler Center for Special Needs offers sports and recreational programs, family events, and classes that promote self-confidence, socialization and cooperation while building life-long friendships. Adaptations are made when needed to facilitate active participation.
An intake is required prior to registration. Siblings of participants are invited to attend as peer mentors.
