I have two children that have been attending here that both have ADHD. Since going to Special Kids, my children have improved remarkably and are becoming more self reliant and are calmer. I don't know what I would do with out Special Kids and their awesome staff.

My child has been going to Special Kids for several years now. The staff had been dedicated to helping him develope into a productive person. They redirect him at the time it is needed. They've helped him feel better about himself and I am truly grateful for them being there for me. There is no other place in Tulsa that will take these kids. Most of these kids are kicked out of typical child care centers because the centers don't know how to deal with the kids challanges. Special Kids is always sending staff for training in ways to cope and handle different types of special challanges so they can care for these children in a meaningful way that will not only help the child but also the parents. Special Kids are not only there for the child but also for the parents. They are family oriented. They helped me understand my childs needs when I had no clue. They helped me through some very difficult times. I am a single grandparent raising a special needs child and there is no way I could have made it this far without all their help. However they can't pay their staff what they are worth, the funding just isn't available. Staff is dedicated to this cause. They need more space and more funding in order to better serve their clientel. Check out their website to get a better idea of what they are all about, the children in the photos are the children they serve. www.specialkidscare.org

The Great!

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

The way my child and I interact, the way he accepts his challanges and in his compassion towards others. Also in the way my child handles his anger issues.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their ability to handle every challange thrown their way. The loving and compassionate way they work with children and families.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

exceptional

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

take in all the children that need this service not just a few. Custom build a building that would provide all the services that these kids need along with playground equipment and special equipment and toys.

My son attended Special Kids Daycare at a time I needed them most. It would have been impossible for me to keep my employment and my insurance without this childcare facility. They were there for me and my backbone through some very difficult times. Learning your child has special needs can be devastating. Jo and the staff made me feel more comfortable and hopeful about our future. There is no other place like this in Tulsa and it's a shame that Special Kids does not get more assistance. In order to keep a trained staff they must be able to provide classes and training, they must be able to provide a big enough building to house everyone, they need healthy food for the children, just to name a few. To me, Jo is family. I love Special Kids!

Special Kids day care is unique. The founder and those who work with her are dedicated to their mission. It is not a "job" it is a caring, giving and compassionate place to help those who are less fortunate than typical children. The staff is well trained, and probably underpaid for the caring service they provide. I have observed their one on one interaction with the children and it is very impressive. These children are well instructed, well fed, and lovingly cared for. The founder, began with almost nothing, but she perservered in her dream, her calling, and yes, a ministry to not only the children but to their families. It requires a very special person for these children and the staff at Special Kids fills that requirement. If, I had a son or daughter with special needs, that would be by far first choice. It is certainly a five star facility.

I have seen the growth in individual children who have been given a sense of self worth. I've seen the development of self confidence installed through patient loving guidance.

I am impressed with Special Kids Day Care because of the quality of care and attention the children receive. All the children participate in organized age appropriate activities and are taught by qualified teachers. Everyone receives healthy balanced meals. The staff is dedicated, caring, and friendly. All in all, a well run facility.
