Kelly Day School

Help your student reach their fullest potential through a wholesome experience tailored to their daily needs.

Take the First Step
The Kelly Day School Program welcomes students ages 3-22 who face complex medical, physical, communication, neurological and/or sensory challenges that effect their daily life.

Comfortable, Safe and Engaging

Your student will receive understanding care and education supported by adaptive learning equipment, assistive technology and communication devices to help them achieve a level of independence suitable for their needs (based on their IEP*.) Small class sizes in substantially separate classrooms located within host public schools provide inclusion opportunities.

In the Kelly Day School classrooms, your student will learn and build life skills in a compassionate environment that offers:

  • An engaging, yet safe and comfortable experience
  • Separate classrooms within the program’s public host school
  • Small-group and/or individual instruction
  • Opportunities to join their peers in the general student population

Deliberate, Mindful Support

Students will receive unmatched, individualized care from a support team dedicated to their daily success. Classroom instruction is led by engaging teachers who adapt lessons to the level and needs of each student.

Support staff include:

  • Physical therapists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Nurses
  • Speech language pathologists
  • Vision teachers
  • Board certified behavior analysts
  • Teachers of the deaf
  • Mobility specialists

Your student will always have the support they need to communicate, learn and move safely throughout the day.
