Room to grow

. April 29, 2013.

A new school year, a new school building. That’s the plan for The Center for Autism and Dyslexia, which recently purchased a 12,000 square-foot facility in Timberstone Commons, near Ashley Furniture. Executive Director Susan Pneuman says she hopes to have renovations completed by September.

It’s a testament to the center’s growth since starting in 2006 as a service provider, and its recent charter school status, enrolling preschool through high school. The center currently has 45 students both traditional and those with special needs, and remains an option for parents looking
for an individualized curriculum. The center will graduate three seniors this year.

“We have been here three years and we are chock-full,” says Pneuman of the current facility at 222 Center St. “It’s a key thing for families to be able to make a choice in schooling, and that’s a cornerstone of what we do.”

With facilities in both Findlay and Lima, The Center for Autism and Dyslexia is a private school that offers specialized educational services in a classroom setting. The new Findlay facility will include nine classrooms, space for therapy, a life skills room and a large multipurpose room and playroom. Construction and renovation will begin in May, with completion hopefully in time for next school year.
