Caring and Credentialed
Brehm welcomes students into a transformative learning environment. In our inclusive community, each child is supported by a highly-qualified, caring team of experts: teachers and tutors, speech-language pathologists, dorm staff, medical and clinical specialists, and recreation staff. Together, we rebuild. We restore. We watch our students succeed.
We offer a unique blend of holistic methodologies delivered by an industry-leading team of experts, the majority with advanced degrees and decades of experience. An average staff-to-student ratio of just 1:5 enables ample individual attention. Our faculty and staff collaborate to provide a 24/7 continuum of care.
