Welcome to Pattison’s Academy!

Our Mission

Pattison’s D.R.E.A.M. Academy will improve the quality of life for children with multiple disabilities by providing comprehensive education and rehabilitation programs.


Who We Are

We are a TEAM of educated, well trained, problem-solving, passionate children, parents, teachers, therapists, administrators, early interventionists, service coordinators, board members, doctors, nurses, businesses, and community members dedicated to achieving this mission.  You can find a list of our board and staff members on this website.


How We Improve Quality of Life

We work as a team to consider the needs of the WHOLE child and maximize potential through integrating therapy, early intervention, service coordination, education and community involvement in the most efficient ways possible – and the numbers back that up.  Almost 90% of our support comes from public support.  And nearly 90% of our operating budget goes to support the programs that directly serve our children and their families.  We also partner with hospitals and schools in order to increase training opportunities for those in the healthcare and education professions.  As we work to better integrate education and rehabilitative therapy, our children and our community benefit.
