Individualized Education

A School Choice Option

In the typical elementary school classroom, children with emotional and behavioral disabilities do not fit in. They may be unable to pay attention, control their activity or regulate their emotions. Their often explosive behavior can by scary for everyone. Too often, these children are ostracized. They feel bad about themselves and dread going to school.

These special children need an individualized education program to help them develop the skills they need to learn, grow and change. Under the Florida Department of Education’s school choice option program, families have the right to choose a private school that meets the individual learning needs and styles of a child with emotional and behavioral disabilities.

The Daniel M. Center for Behavioral Change provides a private school option for children and families struggling with emotional and behavioral disabilities. Our program also provides individualized tutoring for St. Lucie County Public School District students with exceptional education needs.
