Second Start Learning Disabilities Programs

Founded in 1974, Second Start began offering a tutorial and diagnostic clinic to children with autism spectrum disorder. Beginning in 1976, Second Start opened Pine Hill School, which delivered school-based services to students in grades 1-12. These services provided a multi-disciplinary, academic and therapeutic program geared toward developmentally disabled and emotionally challenged children. Second Start Learning Disabilities Programs is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and all donations made to the organization may be tax deductible.
