Welcome to The Bridge! How May We Serve You?

Being in this field for many years has allowed us a peek into the lives of families who live with special needs every single day of their lives. We have seen what is difficult for families and what makes their lives easier. When beginning to look at what services we would provide at The Bridge of Georgia, this was our beginning framework. As we were in the development stage we were also able to attend a statewide stakeholder's meeting in which parents were able to share concerns and talk about their lives. Several things have been repeated to us again and again:

  • "We need more services under one roof."
  • "We need services to be more affordable."
  • "We need transitions to be easier."
  • "We need to spend less time on the road."
  • "We need professionals of all kinds who have some understanding of the nature of autism and how to work with out children."
  • "We need more resources."

The services we will be providing at The Bridge are based on these concerns. While some may think a hair salon in a building that houses a preschool is crazy, those who live with this daily know that getting haircuts can be a harrowing experience for some children and their parents.

Family counseling may seem out of the ordinary in a medical wing which is housed within a school. However, we have seen firsthand the difficulty of raising a child with special needs. By providing that kind of support on site, a couple might actually be able to carve out the time to get the support they might need while their child is receiving other services.

Some might think it strange to have camps in the winter but those with children on the spectrum know that breaks in service can be difficult and sometimes regression in behaviors can be seen in even short breaks.

Our services will be opening in phases and it is our goal to have everything in place to serve you family in a very comprehensive way. Be watching the website for announcements of new services. We are eager to serve you.
