See What's Happening at Alternatives For Children
|Alternatives For Children Melville relocating to Dix Hills|
Exciting and wonderful happenings are an everyday occurrence at all four of Alternatives For Children’s locations. Not since the opening of our state-of-the-art East Setauket facility in January of 2004 have we had such incredible news to share with you.
Taking her cue from the Lady Gaga hit, Born This Way, Music Therapist Lee Morris instilled in her students a valuable life lesson; I’m beautiful in my way, and I was born this way! For their end of the year song, all the children, those with disabilities and their typically developing peers, sang Born This Way, with adapted lyrics, and used American Sign Language to make this song their own.
Alternatives For Children gives all these beautiful children and their families the tools they need, and provides a strong educational foundation, so that they can be successful as they transition to the kindergarten environment.
For the parents of these children, these words affirm what they have always known; that their children are beautiful, despite the fact that they have been classified as a preschool student with a disability.
