At Childhelp, our goal is to meet the physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual needs of abused, neglected and at-risk children. We focus our efforts on prevention, intervention, treatment, and community outreach. Childhelp programs and services help children from any situation and let them experience the life they deserve: one filled with love. The principal theme across all of our programs is to provide children we serve with an environment of compassion and kindness. The Childhelp Non-Public School at Merv Griffin offers special education instruction, behavior intervention, including development and modification of Behavior Modification Plans, as well as Language and Speech Development and Remediation. The campus can service 120 ambulatory students including those that are residentially placed at The Village of Childhelp, and those Community Students that are placed by Local Education Agencies in Grades K-12.
The Primary disabling conditions and eligibilities for attendance are: Emotional Disturbance, Specific Learning Disability, Other Health Impairments and Mild Autism. The campus is able to serve some Intellectually Disabled (Mild/Moderate and Moderate/Severe), and English Language Learners.
