Beautiful Gate Center

Beautiful Gate Center is a group practice, Therapeutic Clinic and center-based Developmental Learning Center located in Charleston, SC for children and youth with Developmental Disabilities and Autism.

Offering Speech, Occupational & ABA therapies. Beautiful Gate Center is a tax-exempt, non-profit, charitable organization incorporated in 2015 under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All contributions, grants and bequests are tax deductible.

The Beautiful Gate Center offers a Therapeutic Group practice with specialties in Speech, ABA, and Occupational Therapies in addition to a center-based, full day, year round ABA Developmental Learning Center Program for families seeking more intensive supports for their child. BGC seeks to serve individuals with Developmental Disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorders, and their families, who are inadequately served in existing public and private special education programs due to the individuals’ need for a broader range of more intensive learning supports than those traditional environments offer. Our practice supports children who are non-verbal or have significant speech delays in addition to cognitive delays, behavior challenges, life skill deficits and more. We pride ourselves on AAC (Alternative and Augmentative Communication) systems and technology as well as evaluations and assessments.

Mission: Our Mission is to provide the highest level of care in a unique learning environment where children and youth with Developmental Disabilities and Autism are able to attain the skills and supports they need to enhance their long-term quality of life, and that of their families, and to help prepare the way for them to play, learn, live and work as indispensable members of our Community.

Is AAC a Separate Language?

AAC is a crucial component of our program model and our SGD equipment inventory is expanding as we prepare for the opening of our new therapeutic clinic and developmental learning center in Charleston SC.

This a terrific resource for parents and guardians to better understand the importance of the use of AAC, especially when discussing IEPs and other educational plans. With a separate-language designation for augmentative and alternative communication, children learning to use the systems could receive more support.

General information

Beautiful Gate Center is a private, full-day, year-round developmental learning center coming to the Charleston tri-county area in 2017. Beautiful Gate Center is a center-based, multi-disciplinary therapeutic day treatment center, not a school, but is nevertheless focused on addressing the full range of learning objectives including behavioral, social, communication, academic, coping, health and daily living skills. We believe: * Every child can learn and should be expectantly and supportively challenged to reach their potential each day. * Every child, and their family, has the right to the highest quality of life that they can attain and that it is our daily mission to enable that. * In educating the whole child, respecting their unique strengths and learning styles. * Every child should have opportunities to be with other children, and people in their communities, as they grow and learn. * Every child should have the opportunity to play and learn outdoors regularly. * Children flourish when we recognize their worth, affirm their abilities, and strive to promote their dignity in every relationship.
