Education For Special Needs

Professional, Certified Education For Special Needs Children

Every single child is special in his or her own way. If your child has a learning disability there are plenty of ways to overcome these challenges. Parents are often searching for new educational paths for their children to encourage learning and understanding. If your child is special needs or has a learning disability, we are proud to offer education for special needs children. The team at The Center for Developmental Play and Learning (CDPL) is local to the Santa Barbara, California area and is able to help. If you are in need of a consultation or need to schedule an appointment to begin working with your child, be sure to call us today. Our education for special needs children is varied, approachable, safe, and inviting. We think outside the box, appreciate each day as it comes, and understand that patience and innovative thinking is often just what it takes to work with special needs children.


When it comes to traditional education, often it can be hard to find a special needs teacher available in a public school. A special needs teacher is very special, harboring a range of teaching skills outside of a traditional teacher's wheelhouse. That is because special needs instruction requires customized thinking and practice, which is hard to come by. Luckily, the team at the Center for Developmental Play and Learning (CDPL) has a team of trained professionals. Our staff is made up of speech therapists, occupational therapists, social workers, and mental health professionals all dedicated to providing the best education for your child. If you are searching for a special needs teacher, reach out to a professional member of our team today.


Public and private schools are often intended to teach students in a traditional way with a traditional curriculum. Public schools are not intended to be special needs schools and often are not set up with the right equipment and facility to help special needs students. At the Center for Developmental Play and Learning (CDPL) we have a large facility that can facilitate our floortime therapy practices. Dedicated special needs schools understand exactly what it takes to create an inviting and safe space for children with disabilities. We understand that sometimes a quiet and soft space is what is required to break through to your child, adapting our education techniques to match the needs of your child. Our special needs school is adaptive, constantly evolving, and ready to work with you and your child's specific needs.
