We at SLC embrace the uniqueness of every child and family.

Making the difference in the life of a child

SLC is proud of our dedicated staff who have significant years of services in the field and at SLC.  Many of our staff have committed their careers to meeting the needs of students with significant disabilities and mental health challenges.  On a daily basis they provide consistency, nurturance, emotional support and an opportunity for students to take risks for academic and behavioral success.
