What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Children with disabilities and delays start life at a disadvantage. Without the right help at the right time, these children end up falling behind their peers. Unfortunately, there is an increasing rate of children born with a disability or experiencing a delay. Statistics show that: • 1 in 6 children are born with a disability or delay; • 4,676 children are born in Bexar County every year with a disability or delay; • 43,347 children are in Special Education in Bexar County; and • Only 37% of children in special education in Texas graduate with a high school diploma; 30% receive a “Certificate of Completion” and 11% drop out.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Brighton Center's client goals are to further the educational and developmental progress made by the 3,675 children served, including the following outcomes:
• 95% will make developmental progress
• 95% will have skills necessary for Kindergarten
• 90% who receive advocacy services will indicate that more resources and services were obtained

Brighton Center's strategy for achieving client goals include providing the following programs:
• Early Childhood Intervention: Home-based therapeutic interventions help 2,600 children ages 0-3 reach their developmental potential.
• Pediatric Therapy Clinic: Provide on-site therapy services for 75 children ages 3 to 5
• Early Childhood Education: Provides an inclusive, kindergarten readiness preschool at 2 locations for 100 children ages 18 months to 5 years.
• Special Education Support Services: The program provides 900 individual services to parents of children ages 3-12 about Special Education Laws and how they can advocate for their child, as well as individualized advocacy support.

Brighton was formed by parents in 1969 as a school for children with Down syndrome and has evolved to meet the needs of children with various disabilities/delays. Brighton’s 150 staff members provide an early childhood preschool, home-based therapy, counseling, case management, parent trainings, and individualized support for 3,675 children with disabilities/delays, focusing on birth to age 8, and their families.

Brighton achieved the city's 4-Star certification, National Association for the Education of Young Children accreditation, 2017 Large Nonprofit of the Year by the San Antonio Business Journal and Best Places to Work by several organizations, and recently one of the 2022 Best Nonprofits to Work For by the NonProfit Times and #11 Best Places to Work by San Antonio Business Journal.

Brighton’s Early Childhood Intervention Therapy Program (ECI) is premier in the state due to its child and caregiver outcomes. Brighton’s Early Childhood Education Preschool Program (ECE) is 1 of only a few nationally accredited childcare centers that provide a 50/50 inclusive setting for children with disabilities.in Bexar County Brighton’s Special Education Support Services Program (SESS) is the only one in our community that is free and teaches parents about special education laws, their rights and includes individualized parent advocacy support. Brighton’s NEW on-site Pediatric Therapy Clinic helps ensure that children ages 3 to 5 can continue therapy when they don’t qualify at their school district, so they don’t regress and will be prepared to enter Kindergarten.

The services from Brighton’s three programs, which occur during the most critical developmental stages of life, increase developmental and educational skills and promote kindergarten readiness in the children served. Brighton helps children with disabilities and delays develop a strong foundation for a successful future.
