Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

" The philosophy of Little Village is to provide the finest education and therapeutic services for infants and young children diagnosed as mentally retarded, emotionally disturbed, autistic, neurologically impaired, speech and language impaired, learning disabled and/or multiply handicapped.
Little Village's goal is to enable each child to achieve his or her highest potential educationally, emotionally, and socially. This is accomplished by combining educational and supportive services for families and an ongoing educational/therapeutic program for the children. Little Village's school-based program and ancillary services provide support and services to over 500 families annually throughout Long Island.
