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.

Reviews for Brighton School Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I have known of and have been involved with Brighton for over 10 years. in that time I have seen it grow tremendously in size, programs offered, and excellence. It is a very well ran and managed non-profit that is always focused on its core mission, the children. Brighton has also shown strength as an organization in the past 2 to 3 years by growing and increasing fund raising in a very tough economy where many other non-profits have struggled.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

at events and interacting with families that have received services.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to get Brighton more of a household name among local non profits
