Our mission is to enable individuals with special needs to be successful, productive, and fulfilled adults by providing an engaging environment with tailored programs aligned with their specific abilities and areas of growth potential.
Individuals with special needs are too often aging out of educational programs without the necessary knowledge and skills to be successful adults. Unfortunately, those who want to continue their pursuit of knowledge and skill attainment have limited options since post-secondary school programs are focused on enrichment/daycare type activities, which are primarily recreational. The Chrysalis Center fills this void by providing fully engaged, 1:1 academic learning as well as continued life skills training tailored to one’s specific goals and interests in a safe, nurturing, and fun environment. We focus on establishing goals for future employment or volunteer work and design a program to target the specific skills needed to achieve those goals.
The Chrysalis Center also fills a void for those families who have opted out of educational programs due to concerns that the curriculum and/or structured programs do not accommodate their child’s needs. These children often lose connections to a wider range of experiences. We offer these families additional support and opportunities beyond their home-based programs. At The Chrysalis Center, we understand that each individual with special needs has unique challenges and strengths. Rather than create a program designed to achieve standardized goals, we tailor each program specific to an individual’s interests while targeting personal goals with customized teaching and training.
