Population to be served

iHOPE-NYC will serve children, adolescents and young adults from ages 5 years to 21 years old, who have sustained an acquired brain injury or other brain-based disorders, and who cannot be served in their local school systems.

iHOPE-NYC will fill the immediate need for an appropriate and educational setting for students just exiting a hospital/rehabilitation center. It will also serve the many students who have reintegrated into their public schools and communities post-injury only to find the ongoing sequelae of their brain injury continue to present challenges that require a level of specialized educational programming that is not available in their local school districts.
