Established in 1976, Eden II Programs began with just six students and one special education teacher. Today, the not-for-profit organization serves over 500 participants in New York City and Long Island. The mission of Eden II Programs is to support people with autism through service, science and passion so they may achieve their full potential throughout their lives. Eden II Programs provides a variety of services using the evidence-based principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) to treat the delays and challenges associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Eden II is recognized nationally as a leader in working with individuals across the autism spectrum, including those with the most significant challenges.
Eden II urgently needs your support with the expansion of our early childhood program, specifically as the preschool looks to expand to a new location. The preschool program, Little Miracles, serves over 100 children with preschool and elementary schooling, as well as children who receive services such as SEIT and SETSS.
The entire outfitting of a new preschool building will include the purchase of desks, chairs, bookshelves, teacher stations, room dividers, bean bags for the library corner, reading area mats, play area rugs, desk partitions for one on one settings, books for the library, library cart, storage cabinets, cubby units, and classroom supplies.The funding raised on Crowdrise will go toward the purchase of the most needed furniture and materials. The goal of the outfitting of a new preschool is to provide durable and safe furniture for children in early education so that they can have the best learning environment to support their development.Eden II pre-school offers a highly structured, intensive learning environment using Applied Behavior Analysis. Our individualized programs focus on learning-readiness, academics, social behavior, play skills and self-help. They are certified by the New York State Education Department and mostly funded by the New York City Board of Education. Eden II helps more than 500 people in the Staten Island and Long Island communities with school programs, crisis respite, vocational training, job opportunities, residential care, family support, diagnostic services, and adult day habitation.
