Philosophy of Care

Community Integration
Melmark supports community-based residential options offering external social, recreational, volunteer, and occupational opportunities for children and adults.

Individualized Planning and Customized Programs
Melmark recognizes and supports the dignity of each individual. Programs, goals and services are created to meet each person's needs, abilities, and interests.

Rapid Progress and Outcomes Tracking
Melmark's goal is to challenge each individual to develop skills and grow as much as possible. Flexible plans are put in place for each individual, outlining specific educational, therapeutic, and social goals. Ongoing progress reviews ensure that goals are updated and modified as needed.

Partnership with Families
Melmark's parents and families are invited and encouraged to partner with our caring and professional staff, and serve as equal members of the multi-disciplinary team.

Holistic Focus
At Melmark, we balance the academic, vocational, cultural, recreational, and spiritual aspects of life as appropriate for each individual.

Melmark provides residential, educational, vocational and therapeutic services for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities, brain injuries, and other neurological and genetic disorders.

Our varied programs promote independence, increased self-awareness, and confidence, while offering participants opportunities to make friends and develop personal interests.

The Melmark School offers day and residential special education services to children and adolescents ages 5 to 21 with learning difficulties and/or challenging behaviors secondary to a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder; Acquired Brain Injury; Intellectual Disabilities; Cerebral Palsy; and/or Neurological Disorders.

Our adult programs include The Meadows at Melmark, an innovative, work-centered program for adults with mild-to-moderate disabilities; and Adult Day Workshops for adults with lower cognitive levels or those who are non-ambulatory. Workshop activities include multi-sensory stimulation, massage therapy, hand-over-hand training, and personal assistance.

Our School Consultation Service offers schools individualized functional assessments and treatment planning for students with developmental disabilities and/or behavior disorders, as well as staff and parent training.

History

The mission of Melmark is to serve children, adults and their families affected by a broad range of intellectual disabilities. We provide evidence-based educational, vocational, clinical, residential, healthcare and rehabilitative services, personally des
