What Does ALC Do?
The Adaptive Learning Center enables children with special needs to learn, play and grow with other students in preschool classrooms.
We are the only organization in Georgia that fully integrates children with special needs into typical preschools – with individualized support from special education teachers. Our partnerships with some of Atlanta’s finest preschools enable children to learn and play alongside their peers in a warm and caring environment. In classes with 90 percent or more typical children, children with challenges or disabilities learn not just basic academic skills; they discover important life lessons through interactions with other children and adults.
ALC serves children with a wide range of developmental delays and differences, such as sensory processing disorders, speech and language delays, autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, Fragile-X, and other developmental and at-risk conditions. Children do not need a diagnosis to be served by ALC.
Following a thorough interview process, our staff develops customized therapy education plans that outline specific and attainable goals for each child. Using the latest strategies and intervention standards, our support teachers take a holistic approach to meeting each child’s individual needs. The ALC teacher tracks the children’s progress daily and also keeps the parents informed via daily email notes. In addition, parents receive valuable guidance and documentation that helps them plan for elementary school and beyond.
For children with special needs, an inclusive preschool program provides belonging, acceptance
and developmentally appropriate practices.
