The School for Young Children serves children who have language/learning disabilities to such an extent that they do not profit from instruction in a more traditional environment. The cause of these learning problems is usually an inability to process information/instruction which requires significant levels of remediation and/or alternative approaches to instruction. There must be an educational need in order for students to be accepted into the school. The following requirements must be met before a child is admitted to the SYC:

Additionally, children must have a level of cognitive development that would suggest that they are able to profit from the academic environment provided at the SYC. Children are not accepted at the SYC if their behavior inhibits them from profiting from instruction.

To initiate the application process, contact Mrs. Sheila McBrinn, director of the SYC, at 713-520-8310, or by email at
