Kennedy Krieger School Program


The Kennedy Krieger School Program includes a number of programs that offer services to children with learning challenges.  Students aged 5-21 receive instruction that focuses on the development of academic, social, emotional, and behavioral skills in an environment that recognizes and capitalizes on the individual strengths of each child.


In addition, a full range of related services is also provided in order to implement Individual Education Plans (IEPs) in the least restrictive environment.
