The mission of the Educational Development Center's therapeutic programming is to provide an intensive academic and behavioral program to students who have been identified as emotionally disabled, learning disabled, intellectually disabled, autism, multi-disabled and those with other health impairments. Towards that end, EDC facilitates a behavior management programs that provides consistent structure to the classroom and allows for individualized academic instruction. The combination of a structured and strict behavior management program, with a multi-sensory academic component, addresses both the social, emotional, and academic needs of children. Students are not allowed to use counseling as a crutch to avoid consequences. Instead, they are encouraged to use counseling towards the development of life long coping skills. This affords them the opportunity to take responsibility for their own actions, despite the hardships that might befall them. It is EDC's mission to develop responsible individuals, with the necessary coping and problem solving skills required for successful participation in society.
It is the philosophy of the Educational Development Center to provide a full educational program to emotionally disabled, other health impaired, intellectually disabled, multi-disabled, autistic and learning disabled students, whose educational benefit requires the support of a therapeutic setting.
