HASC Heaven on Earth Camp Video: The HASC (Hebrew Academy For Special Children) Programs were established in 1963 to provide educational and clinical services to individuals from infancy through adulthood, who exhibit developmental delays. HASC is a non-profit, non-sectarian agency, which provides a wide range of supportive services to children with special needs. HASC continues to provide high quality education and therapeutic services to children with special needs. Families are an integral component of our education process. We are guided by creativity, compassion and motivation as we strive to make a world of difference in the lives of our children.
In 1963, disabled children had few school options available to them because of limited special education programs. Parents could keep their children at home or they could send him/her to a program that did not meet the needs of their child. Rabbi Max and Blanche Kahn decided to begin a program to serve the needs of these children. From the start, the program was characterized by professionalism, with a focus on the individual needs of each child. Their vision continues to affect the programs that we operate today. Our current programs are non-denominational. We teach our children with respect and sensitivity to their religious and cultural diversity. This diversity exists not only within our student body and their families, but within our staff as well. What started as a small program in New York City, has now blossomed into 6 locations in the New York region servicing over 1,100 children. Services are provided at the child’s home, day care center, nursery and at our center based locations. See more at: www.hasc.net
