Oak-Leyden Developmental Services
Oak-Leyden was founded in 1956 by concerned families who joined to form the Oak Community School in Oak Park, Illinois. Here, young adults with developmental disabilities learned the skills they would need to live as independently as possible within home and community settings. Over the years, the Oak Community School grew to include a wide range of vocational and residential services for adults; and therapy, educational and family support for infants and young children with developmental disabilities. Please learn more at http://oak-leyden.org/.
At the Collaboration for Early Childhood, we provide the resources and connections vital to every child's opportunity for success in learning and in life. Work with us to create a bright future for our community. Please learn more at http://collab4kids.org/.
UCP Seguin believes in a world where children and adults with disabilities achieve their potential, advance their independence and act as full members of the community. We strive to make this world a reality--in Illinois and beyond, for people at every stage of life--by leveraging technology to provide innovative training and educational programs, family support, employment, life-skills training and residential services.
