How can we help?

Throughout our community and the country, the rates of children with special needs are skyrocketing. Systems are being overwhelmed. Budgets are over-extended. Children are falling through the cracks. Families are struggling with the unique challenges and opportunities of having a child with disabilities. In order for all children with developmental disabilities to have the opportunities they deserve, every facet of our community – government, schools, doctors, families, and community organizations – needs to find creative and effective ways to help support these children.
Our approach is family-focused – that is, we believe that families can provide the best care for their children and should be empowered to reclaim both quality of life and hope for the future. Our programs, therefore, start with the needs of the family. We believe in the importance of building relationships. ICC programs (individualized therapy, innovative educational opportunities and community partnerships) focus on building strong and lasting relationships between and among children, family, schools and the community.
ICC is a nonprofit organization that imagines the capacity of a child with a disability when parents, school teachers, classmates and the community have a wide and diverse array of tools to support that child reaching his or her fullest potential. We offer individualized therapy, education and community partnerships that foster inclusion, acceptance and independence.
