24/7 Support

The Health and Wellbeing building houses both our clinical and medical departments. Both departments help support our students during the academic day and in the boarding setting. Rather it is through in-the-moment interventions and assessments or on-call cellphone support. There is always staff available for all situations.

Clinical Support

Students learn to develop and maintain healthy relationships, interact appropriately in social settings and understand their own and dormmates’ personal challenges. We often remind our students, “Everyone here is working on creating the best version of themselves, including the staff.”

Medical Support

From cleaning thier rooms to managing their free time. Students at Brehm get both the opportunities and assistance to achieve their personal level of independence. Our staff meets our students where they are to help shape them to be independent young adults. 

Resilience Development

Here at Brehm, students receive a weekly allowance from you, the parent. Based on your wants and needs for your student and our experience with them, we help the create and maintain a budget. We also have a Financial literacy course that focus on real-world money management.

“The special and individualized attention that our son has received at Brehm has been truly amazing. He has grown in so many ways during his first year at Brehm – academically, socially, personally – that we could hardly believe it was the same child who went off to school in the fall.”

S. Holm and K. Johnson

“We think the world of Brehm and can never thank the school and its experienced, committed faculty enough for reaching our daughter and giving her back to us as the lovely and gifted person she was intended to be. Without the emotional and academic foundation Brehm helped her build, she would not be pursuing her dreams.”


The faculty, staff, and administrators are passionate about their calling and our child has reaped those rewards. She has been challenged and supported by each of her amazing teachers. Our daughter has grown so much academically and socially. Thanks to OPTIONS, she has been given the opportunity to learn, grow and succeed in an amazing nurturing environment. The formative experience in this wonderful school is unique in the country and is an exceptional value. I honestly don’t know if you can find a place where the teachers and staff love their students more. PhilParent

“Even if we had to give up all the academic support and advances, it would still be worth it for our family, just for the mental health aspect. Having Wyatt be around other students that are functioning at his level and have similar mindsets has been a life changing experience for all of us. His general disposition and outlook on life have greatly improved. As an added bonus, academically we have seen leaps and bounds of progress too!!”

Armen, Brehm Alumnus

As the years go by, my family and I continue to reflect and agree attending Brehm was one of the best things done for me. The faculty are truly invested, and never stop providing insight and recourses to prepare one for success. Academically, Brehm lets you explore your strengths, from taking specific courses at Brehm while accommodating deficits, not by ignoring them. They spend extra time explaining material fitted for one's learning style and preparing one for self-learning post-graduation.

R. Greenlaw English

“Words cannot express our gratitude. Brehm has helped my son’s confidence in learning. His maturity and his grades reflect that he has excelled in the environment. He feels safe and loved by the staff members — they’ve treated him like family. Brehm not only educates a disabled child…they show love and concern.”  


“My son made quantum leaps because of his speech classes and the social groups.”
