Who we are
Bright Steps Forward is a fully accredited Therapy Learning Center for children with special needs that
serves children from kindergarten through twelfth grade. Students attending Bright Steps
Forward come from educational environments where their needs were not being met and they
were unable to thrive.
Our student population is diverse – some are on the autism spectrum, some have only physical impairments and others have cognitive limitations. Unlike public school classrooms, the class sizes in our centers are small and children are grouped according to their needs.
Our teachers and practitioners evaluate each student to discover their own natural strengths and prepare curriculum to achieve their maximum potential.
Bright Steps Forward's academic program follows the Sunshine State Standards and we include other programs to enrich the curriculum. We accept Step Up for Students and McKay Scholarships.
What sets our Therapy Learning Center apart from other special needs programs is our ability to provide
intensive ABA, PT, OT and speech therapies onsite so that each child can blossom
socially, physically as well as cognitively.
We follow the same calendar as the Broward County School System and offer camp programs during summer, winter and spring breaks for a fee.
At Bright Steps Forward, our mission is to provide a nurturing environment where all students receive individualized attention and are challenged to develop and grow academically, physically, and behaviorally and to be kind and respectful to others.
