School has been operating in Henderson,
Kentucky since September 1953. It has
operated continuously since that time through the efforts of volunteers and
support from the community. Riverview provides educational programs,
respite care, and emotional support for preschool children having special needs and their
families. The ultimate goal is to lead children toward their own sense of
self-worth and independence by preparing them for classes within the public
school system with quality educational and rehabilitative services.
Our Students come to Riverview through referrals, foster parent
programs, and the court system. They suffer a broad range of physical or
emotional problems, including kidney disease, schizophrenia, HIV, cerebral
palsy, Down syndrome, autism, fetal alcohol syndrome, ADHD, visual impairment,
and hearing problems as well as children who have suffered abuse or
neglect. No child is turned away from
School because of inability to pay.
Please contact us if you have any questions, any suggestions, or
have a student who would benefit from our services.
School provides services to preschool
children with special needs through donations made through the United
County, local businesses, and generous
individuals from local communities. If
you would like to help the students of
School, please contact us at the email
addresses or the phone number listed on this page.
