Beekman teaches life skills!
The Beekman Center also houses our Community Based Instruction (CBI) program that gives our young adult students on the job training, as well as providing the students with classes in functional academics and other life skills subjects. The young adult students participate in a full spectrum of electives which may include Special Olympics. At the Beekman Center we acknowledge the holistic nature of the individual child and we provide the assistance needed to help children with special needs achieve their full potential.
