We invite you to know and experience the Achievement Centers for Children - a nonprofit agency that families call a source of hope, a place of achievement and a center of support and expertise for children with special needs. Since our founding in 1940, we've earned a reputation for excellence in helping children with a wide range of disabilities lead productive lives through customized therapies, education and childcare programs, camping and recreation opportunities, nationally-recognized autism programs and family support services.
