Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Child Day Care, Children & Youth, Developmentally Disabled Centers, Disabilities, Education, Family Services, Human Services, Special Education

Mission: Brighton provides family & community education and developmen services to children (birth to age 22) with disabilities or delays empowering them to achieve their individual potential, making them successful in every community.

Programs: The early childhood intervention (eci) program provides children with disabilities and delays from birth to age 3 with therapies and support services to assist them in achieving their full potential. Through this program, early intervention specialists and licensed therapists go into the child's natural environment to provide direct therapy and to teach the child's parents or caretakers methods in which to continue those therapies throughout the day within their regular routines.

bright beginnings is our inclusive early childhood education center. Bright beginnings offers children with and without disabilities from 6 weeks to 5 years old the opportunity to learn no matter what their differences may be-every person has something to offer. Children with disabilities are able to learn from their typically developing peers, and children without disabilities are able to gain a sense of respect for children with disabilities and their unique contributions.

the parent alliance for learning and support (pals) program provides classroom and hands on training to parents of children with disabilities, young adults with disabilities and community members in the areas of self, idea and general advocacy. All training for parents of children with disabilities and young adults (ages 15-22) with disabilities are provided through curricula which allow a hands on learning environment. The training provided through pals program works to improve the quality of life for individuals with disabilities by providing them a voice until their own voice can be heard.

The Brighton Center provided valuable services to my 3 year old in our home. We were concerned with a delay in his speech, and thankfully we were recommended to the Brighton Center. We had a very compassionate speech therapist come to our house and evaluate our son. She spent well over 2 hours with he and I and put our minds at ease. She provided us with helpful ways to encourage his speech and with useful handouts and resources. Luckily, a few months later we had a "chatter box" in the house....our son had the gift of gab. Thanks to the staff at the Brighton Center, especially our speech therapist, we found their services to be invaluable. We have recommended their many services to many more families. Keep up the great work!!

My daughter Kathryn was born with down syndrome. She is now 21 years old. I do not know what I would have done without Brighton School's help. Kathryn began receiving services from Brighton when she was three weeks old. Without the Early Childhood Intervention, I believe Kathryn would not have thrived, like she did. Not only did Brighton work with her, they provided family counceling, emotional support from other parents, educational resorces and most important... hope. Brighton School changed my life as well as Kathryns. I will never forget the great staff or the School!
