Project H.O.P.E. is a community based program that provides therapy to children diagnosed with severe physical, communication, cognitive self-help, social-emotional and /or behavioral challenges including Down’s Syndrome, Autism, Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, and numerous other conditions. Project H.O.P.E. is a volunteer organization led by a devoted and hard-working Board that fundraises all of the money used to meet the therapeutic needs of the children.
Golden Hills School Division partners with Project H.O.P.E. to ensure that the students receive the therapy during school hours in their schools so the children have access to this valuable therapy when they are most alert and while they are in their own community. Such a model provides an opportunity for the therapy to be integrated into the child’s individual program through parent/teacher/therapist collaboration and the use of goals defined on the child’s individual program plan.
Project H.O.P.E. provides services to children between the ages of; early entry students (3 years old) to outgoing high school students (19 years old).
