Established in 1987 by Betsy Farmer to provide a school for her son with Down Syndrome, Space Coast Early Intervention Center provides our students with the most up-to-date curricula available for children with or without disabilities. SCEIC’s purpose has been and continues to be the education of children in an inclusion environment.
At Space Coast Early Intervention Center, we believe that every child of every ability deserves individualized instruction and benefits from inclusive classroom environments. Our unique inclusion program provides equal learning opportunities for all children, regardless of ability, to ensure they receive the academic and social skills needed to succeed in life.
Large classroom spaces, small student-to-teacher ratios, access to therapists and handicap accessible equipment are only a small part of what is provided to create individualized plans for each child to best fit his/her educational need. Typically developing and gifted students act as role models for those with disabilities in their classes, modeling behaviors, and growing from the experiences presented within the inclusive classroom through mentoring, hands-on learning, and peer interactions. Each child is able to learn at his/her own pace with unique goals based on individual abilities.
