For the past three decades, Gillen Brewer’s mission has been to educate and support our students in becoming confident, independent, and engaged learners. We accomplish this by thoughtfully partnering with our families and utilizing an integrated academic-therapeutic approach for children with language-based and non-verbal learning disabilities. Our year-round program serves children ages 2.8 through 10 years old and offers individualized services for every student’s needs while also fostering a supportive, community-based environment for each child and their family. All Gillen Brewer students have the opportunity to participate in speech and occupational therapy, play therapy/counseling, music, art, science, technology and a sports and fitness program, which provides them with the full range of skills they need to build a foundation for lifelong learning and independence.

We are The Gillen Brewer School. Uncovering the Specialness in Every Child yesterday, today, and for future generations to come!
