Sara’s Garden is a non-profit organization that specializes in Autism Intervention (AI), Conductive Education (CE), Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), Occupational Therapy (OT), Sensory Integration (SI) and Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) services. We are the only facility in North America to offer all of these services.

Sara’s Garden was established in May 2004 and treated its first clients with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in April 2005. The Conductive Education program followed in the summer of 2006. In an effort to serve families more effectively we now offer Autism Intervention, Occupational Therapy, Sensory Integration and Speech-Language Pathology services as well. These services provide life-changing results for children with conditions such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Seizure disorders, and Traumatic brain injuries to name a few. As of today, we remain the only facility in the United States to provide all of these services.

Our most recent endeavor was the creation of New Horizons Academy at Sara’s Garden, a holistic, all-encompassing educational center for children who have special learning needs. Our goal is to work with children with special needs and help them to be able to overcome their learning disabilities in hopes that they can return to a typical classroom setting. We strive to help them become as independent as possible. In many cases we have seen increased verbalization and mobility, more focused cognition, reduction and/or elimination of seizures, and improved fine and gross motor skills.
