SANDY CAY INC Overview
Profile ( less )
SANDY CAY, Inc. (SCI) is a nonprofit organization which has been in operation since 2000 helping many area families with their children?s special educational needs. SCI assists in the education of children ages three and up with communication, cognitive, behavior and/or social function deficits in rural Northwest Ohio.
Although SCI utilizes a multidisciplinary approach, the focus of training centers on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) including Applied Verbal Behavior (AVB). These have proven successful with children previously thought to be uneducable, such as some children with autism spectrum disorders.
Each child?s program is tailored to their specific needs. In addition to academics, programs may include life skills, social skills, sensory integration, behavior management, music and strategies relevant to speech, language and occupational therapy. Qualified staff trains tutors to effectively work with this population of special needs children. Programs are closely monitored through data collection, observation and team review. Services are typically provided at The Bryan Center. The Bryan Center is a division of SCI that provides services to children with autism spectrum disorders including Asperger?s Syndrome and PDD. In special cases, services can be provided to students enrolled in private school. SCI may also support staff within other educational settings. Support personnel involved may provide consult services to staff or direct services to students.
Training is available to parents so that their children have consistency. Parental involvement is vital to each child?s success. The ultimate goal is independence across environments.
Another division of SCI is The Coral Reef Project which provides after school tutoring, supports Team Meetings for SCI clients, operates an extended Summer School Program and also runs a Mentoring Program for teens with and without disabilities.
SCI has identified children in the community with present needs and wishes to augment their development with appropriate intervention. As financial resources grow, more children will have the opportunity to participate. SCI operates throughout the year. Number of support hours per child is at the discretion of SCI and depends upon financial resources, need and personnel.
