What is the mission of your organization?
New Perceptions was founded in 1952 by a number of concerned parents because appropriate services for their special needs children did not exist. We started as two different school, both schools were successful and merged in the 60’s. Societal shifts in the 70’s focusing on the inclusion of all, the federal government mandating that all school aged children with disabilities be transitioned into public schools, allowing New Perceptions to change its focus to work with individuals after they left school. New Perceptions helped transition those children to a work environment. We were able to help create a different work force for those in our communities. Today our presence in Northern Ky is greater than ever for our Work services and Supported Employment. Our great unknown is the services we deliver to children. We will work to change that in the coming years.
