Uncovering Specialness



Gillen Brewer School is a family-oriented, 12-month, special education program on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, NYC,
for children ages 2.8 to 10 years old who have a wide variety of language-based and non-verbal learning disabilities.
We provide an integrated, developmentally appropriate, academic-therapeutic program that includes
speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, counseling, and social groups.
