- Our Mission -
Working collaboratively with individuals, families and the community, Wildwood
Programs empowers and enables children and adults with neurologically-based learning
disabilities, autism, and other developmental disorders to lead independent, productive
and fulfilling lives.
- Our Vision -
Wildwood Programs, Inc. envisions a world that embraces a fundamental respect for ALL people, their strengths, their uniqueness, their creativity and the infinite diversity that we each represent.
- Our Values -
|Appreciating and considering the individual nature and needs of others.|
Doing the right thing in an honest and reliable way, according to the rules and standards of your job and profession.
|Creativity||Transcending the ordinary by building what has not existed, by remaking in an improved fashion that which does, or by finding a solution when one is not obvious.|
|Holism||Acknowledging that all people cannot truly be understood and actively engaged until their whole lives are considered and embraced. Understanding that our mission will only be realized through our cooperative efforts.|
Who We Support
From the child struggling in school with a complex learning disability, to the adolescent with autism trying to navigate his social world, to the adult with a developmental disability working hard to live an independent life, to the family doing everything they can to support their child with a disability, Wildwood Programs helps people grow.
Rather than developing programs based on labels or diagnoses, Wildwood has developed supports and services based on each person’s characteristics, likes and dislikes and unique personality. Wildwood Programs partners with families and offers supports and services that are individualized and tailored in a holistic way for each person.
Wildwood Programs was founded by families who created innovative supports and creative services as the needs of their children were identified. Wildwood was founded by parents and for over forty years it has remained a family focused organization. Today, Wildwood welcomes and encourages the input of family members in each and every part of our program and our Board of Directors is comprised largely of family members.
Wildwood’s staff is renowned not just for its expertise but also for the dedication and commitment to people with disabilities. For years Wildwood has been seen as a leader and a resource for people with disabilities, their families and allied professionals in the Capital Region and beyond.
