Brief Overview of the Therapeutic Boarding Program
Recognizing the importance of therapies and interventions in the lives of individuals with unique needs, the idea of a boarding program was born. This program is designed to cater to students who may not have local access to specialized therapeutic programs which are offered at Sanad Village. By offering a boarding option, Sanad Village extends its reach beyond geographical boundaries, ensuring that more individuals can benefit from their comprehensive services.
The boarding program not only provides students with access to therapies but also offers a structured and supportive environment where they can grow, develop essential life skills, and work towards greater independence. It reflects Sanad Village's commitment to inclusivity making a positive impact on the lives of individuals with determination, regardless of their location.
