Therapy Division

ChanceLight Pediatric Therapy offers services for infants, toddlers, children and young adults who have complex medical and developmental needs. All of our highly trained team members provide treatment in the home, where children are most comfortable.

Whether at 18 weeks, 18 months or 18 years old, children benefit from personalized treatment so they can function at or as close to age-appropriate levels as possible. We strive to improve their ability to succeed at home, at school and at play.

Pediatric Physical Therapy (PT) improves motor skills, balance, coordination, strength and mobility so children can be active participants in home, school, play and social settings.

Pediatric Occupational Therapy (OT) improves hand-eye coordination, focus, attention and self-care so children can better take care of themselves, play and interact with others.

Pediatric Speech Therapy (ST) improves verbal and non-communication so children can better use and understand language. Feeding therapy is another part of what we do because certain swallowing and throat disorders affect speech and the ability to eat.

Education Division

For more than 40 years, our alternative education solutions have helped thousands of at-risk middle and high school students struggling with academic and behavioral issues achieve success. Our programs are designed to help school districts improve graduation rates and decrease dropout rates.

Our special education solutions help students with autism spectrum disorders, developmental delays, emotional disturbance, behavioral challenges or other special needs meet their full potential academically, behaviorally and socially.

ChanceLight partners with more than 215 school districts nationwide.


ChanceLight Education Companies:

Ombudsman Educational Services
Many public school districts partner with Ombudsman to provide alternative programs for dropout prevention and credit recovery. Ombudsman students are at risk of not graduating because they may have missed too many school days, lack credits, or have academic challenges or adult responsibilities that keep them from being successful in a traditional school environment.

Spectrum Center Schools and Programs
Serving children and young adults aged five to 22 who have autism spectrum disorders, developmental delays, emotional disturbances, behavioral challenges or other special needs. Spectrum Center provides supplemental special education to public schools by operating nonpublic schools for students with special needs, as well as special education classrooms within public school buildings.
