We honor this legacy and embrace our future with a renewed commitment to enhance possibilities for people of all ages and abilities. We’re fostering and advocating for environments where everyone is included and valued, making a real and positive impact on people’s lives every day. Our high quality programs and services provided throughout Greater Waterbury, Central and Northwest CT communities, include school readiness education, early intervention, rehabilitation services, vocational services, behavior therapy and audiology services. Each year we assist thousands of individuals to reach their potential and to live learn, work and play in their communities.
