About Us

Hope Begins Here.

Heartspring has been a leader and innovator in services for children with special needs and their families since it was founded in 1934 as the Institute of Logopedics. While the organization’s face and name have changed over the years, its dedication to the mission of helping children with special needs find greater independence has remained constant.

Over time, the organization has grown and evolved to meet the ever-changing challenges of children locally, regionally, and nationally. Today, Heartspring provides a wide range of services and therapies through several programs including the Heartspring School, Pediatric Services, and Autism Services.
