About the Provider

Description: For nearly 40 years, parents and professionals have relied on Wilkes Developmental Day School, a private non-profit agency, to meet the needs of children with various abilities, in an inclusive setting. Children receive specialized programming to fit individual needs, including Speech/Language, Physical and Occupational therapies. Classrooms have lower child/staff ratios than required by the state, allowing more individual attention to be given to each child. Staff consists of certified teachers, infant/toddler family specialists and a school nurse.
