Kevin O’Grady School

Kevin O’Grady School provides intensive services for students with multiple disabilities in four distinct programs. The Foundations program is an integrated pre-school program. The Access program is for students with complex medical needs and multiple disabilities. The Reach and Target Programs focus on students with autism and other intellectual disabilities. In all programs, students acquire the academic, communication, social/emotional and self-help skills they need to reach their full potential. All nursing and therapy services are fully integrated.

Adaptations, including sensory diets, augmentative communication systems, adaptive equipment and environmental supports, enable students to engage actively in learning. Behavioral interventions are developed as a team and coordinated by Board Certified Behavior Analysts. Older students undergo a comprehensive vocational assessment to identify their skills, strengths and vocational interests. They practice skills within our comprehensive in-house vocational areas, and participate actively in community outings and community based vocational internships.
