The Helping House was opened in 2008 by teacher Amanda Johnson and parent Josie Johnson.
The teacher/parent team had decided that better services and therapy could be provided to children in highly-structured setting with a low student/teacher ratio. The focus is four-fold: to improve students self-care skills, language, independent work skills, and tolerance of peers. These skills will increase the child''s success in their next learning environment, whether it is a local public school, homeschool, or a more specialized center.
The doors opened to two students in the Fall of 2008.
Since its opening, The Helping House has served over 300 children and their families through multiple programs.
