The Children’s Learning Center is the school component of the Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County, a non-profit organization. The school serves over 250 students, ranging in age from 18 months to 21 years of age, and coming from most school districts across Nassau County, a few from Suffolk County, and many from the boroughs of New York City. During the school hours, assistance is needed to assist the classroom staff to transport students to their specials - art therapy, music therapy and adapted physical education. At CP Nassau, medical, nursing and clinical services (i.e. occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, psychology) are available at the main campus through the Fortunoff Treatment and Rehabilitation Center. At times, the students require assistance being transported to and from their scheduled appointments, within the building.
The volunteer transporter will assist in getting the participants to their appointments on time.
