Letter To Prospective Families
Dear Prospective Families,
Thank you for your interest in Our Children’s of Winter Haven.
OCWH has a rich reputation for serving students with disabilities via a rich academic/therapeutic model and dynamic teaching and therapist faculty. Our dedicated faculty and staff are committed to providing the highest quality education to all students who pass through our doors.
Our faculty recognizes their roles in educating special needs students for the 21st Century. To that end, the organizational design of our school revolves around a core of deliberate academic practices and therapeutic interventions. At core is:
Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) language to literacy collaboration component;
Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) which focuses on the initiation of communication and the design of effective educational environments; and Positive Behavior Management System, which also requires continuous monitoring and data collection of student behavior
The facilities located 330 Avenue C, SE in Winter Haven offer a secure campus which includes an auditorium/gym, kitchen, large classrooms, individual office “pods” between classrooms available for one-on-one therapy and instruction, enabling low student-to-teacher ratios, and a large outside playground.
I welcome you to visit our campus to learn more about the excellent educational and therapeutic opportunities available at Our Children’s for your child. I am confident that you, too, will find it a warm welcoming community motivated to inspiring all children of all abilities to reach their highest potential.
Sharon McManus Comkowycz, MS CCC-SLP
