The Caroline School
The Caroline School is a private school for children with multiple disabilities. This unique school was created for families needing a smaller, more individiualized learning approach for their children. The Caroline School provides  educational services to meet the physical, social and cognitive needs of individuals ages 0-21 with multiple disabilities, including those who have additional medical needs. With an average class size of eight students and a staff to student ratio of 1:4, teachers are able to meet every student at their particular level. The student’s abilities, rather than disabilities, dictate the pace and path that we follow, step by step. Learn more.

Family Day Out (FDO)

FDO is a Saturday day-camp for children and young teens ages 6-14 with all types of disabilities. Each session is staffed by a nurse and a center director. The participants benefit from arts and crafts, games, and playground activities and receive one-on-one assistance from volunteers. Siblings ages 6-10 at the Houston location and siblings ages 6-14 at the Montgomery County location can also attend, allowing parents a total day of rest. Applications must be filled out in advance. Learn more.

 

High School/High Tech

High School/High Tech is a community-based partnership of parents, educators, rehabilitation professionals and business representatives working together to encourage students with disabilities to explore the fields of science, engineering and technology. Only 56% of students with disabilities graduate from high school. High School/High Tech was developed to address this situation. Most individuals with disabilities have not had the encouragement, role models, access and stimulation to pursue challenging technical careers or courses of study. Through High School/High Tech, students with disabilities are presented a mix of learning experiences that promote career exploration and broaden educational horizons. High School/High Tech also offers a mentoring program called RAMP - Ready to Achieve Mentor Program. Learn more.

PNO is a Friday night out-of-home Respite program currently held in two locations around the Houston area. Children, teens, and young adults with disabilities are welcome. Depending on age and activity level, one of the two locations can be recommended for appropriate care. For more information, please email us. Learn more.
