A Note from our Executive Director
Probably the most difficult decision I and the other Board of Directors members and the staff have faced was to close the Cerebral Palsy Daycare and Adult Dayhab programs. As long as the programs have existed we have made every attempt thru fundraising, tuitions, grants, and frugal financial management to provide services to every possible child and adult. Over the years we have dealt and struggled with many issues and have labored thru them all, but Coronvirus COVID-19 has changed that.
We have kept up with developments and recommendations from many sources and were planning to be open at least until after Friday. On Monday morning the CDC issued a paper stating that high risk organizations with ten or more individuals should close. Their definition of high risk included every condition that exists with our clients. Based on their recommendation, the decision was made to close on Monday, March 16, 2020 through Friday, March 27, 2020. During that period we will evaluate whether or not that date needs to be extended. You will be notified of any decisions made.
The Early Intervention and Outpatient Clinic program will continue under telecommunication, including computer, FaceTime, and other type services. If your child is in these programs and you have not or do not get contacted, please call 256-237-8203. Our Coordinators and Therapists will be working from home and there will be no personal visits made.
Thank you for understanding and please follow recommendations as closely as possible to keep yourself and family safe.

People struggling with disabilities and their families need support, in order to have the opportunity to achieve their goals and reach their maximum potential. They share the same dreams as everyone else.
