Learning Arts Center

Mission Statement:

The mission of Learning Arts Center is to identify and provide quality health and life skills education for both children and adults, helping them to achieve their full potential.

We address educational needs of children and adults with special needs, as well as provide ongoing support for family members.

We work in the spirit of cooperation with other community health and educational providers to better meet community needs.

We foster volunteer opportunities to strengthen community involvement, support, and mutual understanding.

We will primarily be focused on programming activities for adults and children with special needs, such as Down Syndrome, Autism, and ADD. This programming is a community effort, and many accomplished community members are investing a lot of time and effort into the development of these programs.

Learning Arts Center offers:

  • Programs for children and adults with Down Syndrome, Autism, ADD, and other special needs
  • Programs for Dementia-related illnesses
  • Family support programs
  • Community Education Programs
  • Lyme Disease Support Group for Young Adults
  • Suicide Loss Support Group
  • Complimentary Hypnosis Meditation Sessions

And more!

Special Needs Programming

Learning Arts Center has teamed with One for Everyone to provide programs and activities for children and adults with special needs, such as Down Syndrome, Autism, and ADD/ADHD. This programming is a community effort, and many accomplished community members have invested a lot of time and effort into the development and ongoing operation of these programs.

One for Everyone began in 2013 as a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supplying adaptive playground equipment in the Northwest Indiana region so that all children could play together. It was founded in memory of a mother, Bridget Hatala Pozzo, whose daughter Polly has special needs. One for Everyone's mission has now expanded to focus on after-school programming, tutoring, and socialization for those with special needs, as well as providing much needed support services for family members.

Programs for children and adults with special needs, as well as family member support classes, are presented free of charge or by donation only.
