Located in Brooklyn, we provide school-age education for children and adolescents between the ages of five and 21 with severe physical disabilities and unique educational, therapeutic and medical needs.

Teachers use Individualized Education Plan (IEP) to meet the customized learning needs of students while
emphasizing academics, social and physical independence, quality of life skills, and transition to adult services. Our school environment offers barrier-free classroom settings with a focus on the following resources:

  • Specialized instruction
  • Computers and assistive technology
  • Augmentative communication
  • Adaptive positioning
    and handling
  • Adaptive physical education
  • Aquatic therapy and swimming activities

Funding is made possible by the New York State Education Department and the New York City Department of Education, and supplemented by donations to ADAPT. As a non-public school, eligibility for this program is determined by the New York City Department of Education.
