The Margaret Murphy Centers For Children
By Michelle Hathaway February 28, 2020
The Margaret Murphy Centers for Children (MMCC) was opened in the fall of 2000 to provide services to children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other developmental disabilities, aged 18 months to 14 years. In the fall of 2004, the MMCC expansion began with the opening of a second location. Currently, there are 7 separate special purpose school locations and one additional program located within a public school, enabling MMCC to provide services to students up to age 20. MMCC was created with the goal of providing the best evidence-based services a child and family could receive, and our staff members remain committed to that objective.
The staff within the Margaret Murphy Center for Children are dedicated to providing high quality educational services within a positive environment. We are passionate in our commitment to provide a creative, collaborative, fun and respectful partnership with our students, with their families, and with our community partners. We support our students in becoming lifelong learners and active community members. We utilize each student’s unique strengths and abilities to help guide them toward meeting their individual goals and reaching their fullest potential. We help students reach this potential while teaching them that maintaining their individuality and being productive members of our community go hand-in-hand. It is against these values that we test every decision we make with our students, their families, and with one another.
