The Tiegerman mission of “teaching the extraordinary” reflects the organization’s goal to substantively transform the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities from preschool throughout adulthood. We are committed to providing an enduring opportunity for exceptional instruction, education and support to ensure that the children and adults that we serve achieve their potential in life. We believe that each individual is extraordinary and through our extraordinary efforts they will achieve a more independent and successful future.
