About Us

Kennedy Krieger School Programs include five schools that offer services to students with learning challenges. Students ages 5–21 receive instruction that focuses on the development of academic, social, emotional and behavioral skills through transdisciplinary, comprehensive instruction in an environment that recognizes and capitalizes on the individual strengths of each student. In addition, a full range of related services is also provided to implement each student’s individualized education program (IEP) in the least restrictive environment.
