KDC’s Annual Spring Celebration to Benefit Special Education School
KDC’s Annual Spring Celebration will be held on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at Lombardo’s in Randolph, Massachusetts. Each year, KDC features a different program and this year’s event will focus on our New Bedford Special Education School, “Where Possibilities Are Endless.” KDC will raise money and awareness to our Chapter 766 approved private special education school. The school provides the highest quality special education services to students, age 3 to 22 years who have developmental disabilities, physical challenges, medically-fragile conditions, and/or behavioral challenges.
“What you see now with my son is not what you saw before he started in Kennedy-Donovan Center School. He’s happy; he’s outgoing — it’s a total transformation for him. I just wish he’d started sooner,” Meredith, KDC School Parent.
Certified special education teachers and therapists plan each student’s individual program to match their developing abilities, while encouraging each to reach his/her maximum potential. Individual and small group instruction utilizes a variety of strategies, materials, activities and experiences to challenge and motivate the students to develop their cognitive, motor, communication, social, emotional, vocational and self-help skills. Once a student turns 22, he or she can easily transition into KDC’s Day Habilitation Program for adults. KDC School serves the towns of south eastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod.
Monies raised from the Spring Celebration will help support the School and make necessary updates and purchases to outdated areas, such as:
-Update technology in all three of our classrooms;
-Replace and update physical therapy equipment for students;
-Update outdated furniture, paint and decor throughout the school
