The Tiegerman mission of "teaching the extraordinary" reflects the organization’s goal to substantively transform the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities from preschool throughout adulthood. We are committed to providing an enduring opportunity for exceptional instruction, education and support to ensure that the children and adults that we serve achieve their potential in life. We believe that each individual is extraordinary and through our extraordinary efforts they will achieve a more independent and successful future.
Tiegerman is a New York State approved non-public school program (K-12) for students with language disorders and developmental disabilities. Our programs focus on providing language-based learning for students to establish the foundation for their educational and social development and prepare them for a world filled with words, sentences, stories and messages. We focus on the relationship between language development and academic success, providing intensive language immersion and academic instruction.
Tiegerman Community Services (TCS) is a part of the Tiegerman family of programs. It was established to meet the needs of adults with developmental disabilities who were graduating from Tiegerman and/or other local high schools.
