What we offer
Learn Me is an innovative, technology-based behavioral counseling practice, combining the knowledge and expertise of industry leaders in clinical, scientific and educational disciplines. The center’s goal is to stem the tide of behavior problems that can be difficult as children with special needs move into adulthood. Some 78 percent of adults with developmental disabilities are unemployed, but with appropriate therapy at centers like Learn Me, many people on the spectrum learn coping strategies to function independently in society.
The center offers a wide range of therapies for children with special needs, who are at various stages of the learning spectrum with an emphasis on independent and foundational life skills. Using simulation and gaming technology, customer needs are assessed through interactive experiences. Research shows that 18 percent of high school children with developmental disabilities are included in general public school classrooms, and therapy sessions at Learn Me can help them assimilate more quickly to the demands of this environment. Treatment plans are tailored to the needs of each client to discover their immense potential. Through live and virtual simulation, customers are immersed in real-life environments that will help them master essential life and safety skills. Customers learn by doing tasks such as tidying up their living space, grooming, navigating crosswalks and traffic, through a variety of interactive experiences.
