Impact Polk 2017: Our Children’s Academy’s Therapeutic Program

Impact Polk grant through the George W. Jenkins Fund within the GiveWell Community Foundation

Throughout each school day, students at Our Children’s Academy receive both academic instruction and therapeutic interventions in the classroom. These services include assistance from Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Speech-Language Pathologists. This Impact Polk grant through the George W. Jenkins Fund within the GiveWell Community Foundation will help sustain Our Children’s Academy’s therapy departments. Because 100 percent of Our Children’s Academy’s student population require therapeutic interventions, these crucial services are an integral component to the therapy and education offered to these children and young adults.
