Day School Field Trip

Therapeutic Day School

The newly expanded ChildBridge Center for Education is an innovative and adaptive sensory-sensitive facility designed to reduce anxiety and drive academic learning. For individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as students with severe and profound needs on the autism spectrum, the day school will “bridge” education and each child’s developmental abilities enabling them to reach their fullest potential.

About ChildBridge Center for Education

Approved by the Illinois State Board of Education, the ChildBridge Center for Education collaborates with each child’s home school district and develops an Individualized Education Program (IEP) that provides personalized therapies and intervention services to address the student’s unique educational needs. Our goal is to focus on the education, therapeutic and life skills areas that most directly affect the student.
