"The GRIT Program is an exemplary, fully-inclusive, non-profit early childhood program for children with disabilities 2 ½ – 5 ½ years of age.
The program offers a team approach, with parents as active members, to develop an individualized educational program. Other team members include; a certified teacher, speech language pathologist, occupational therapist, physical therapists, as well as a developmental specialist (1:1 support person). In addition, GRIT coordinates with community agencies to access specialized resources as needed.
Program hours are typically a half day, Monday - Friday throughout the school year. Children receive support in natural settings, where they would be if they did not have a disability. Therefore, educational programming occurs in the child’s home, community, neighborhood play school, and kindergarten in their community school." (from their website)
