CHC LEARNING CENTER
Together We Make A Difference
CHC Learning Center provides educational and therapeutic programming for early intervention, pre-school, and school age children (infant to 21 years of age). Classes are small and structured to meet the individual needs of students with multiple disabilities and special health care needs. CHC Learning Center is committed to the belief that all children, regardless of the type or degree of disability, are valued individuals who grow, develop, and learn. CHC structures student programming around the philosophy that growth and development varies from person to person and therefore, each child needs an indivdualized approach to programming and delivery of services. CHC is funded in part by New York State Education Department, Department of Health, and other counties and school districts in the western New York region. This funding provides the basic educational program and transportation to and from school. Our supporters provide additional funding for programming and equipment utilizing the latest advances in technology.
