Mission Statement

The goal of Neva King Cooper Ed. Center is to give all our students the tools needed to communicate independently, enhance normalization, and grow/develop to their maximum potential.  This will take place through the use of assistive technology, an individualized curriculum, and the assistance of our greatest asset, our stakeholders.
