Teaching Children and Adults With Special Needs

Caring Voices is registered with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

We provide a caring and structured environment for individuals who face cognitive, developmental, and physical challenges in their daily lives. We are fully committed to providing service and support that is centered around the needs of the individuals in our care.

The approach taken by Caring Voices is to look beyond the disability, focus on the capabilities, and try to expand possibilities. With these three key points firmly in mind, we feel that we can achieve our ultimate goal of helping individuals realize their full potential and giving them confidence in their uniqueness.

The needs that we meet at Caring Voices are as diverse and varying as the individuals that make up the communities that we serve. For individuals, the need for guidance, knowledge, or the development of skills in specific areas is important. For a parent, knowing that your child is safe and well cared for while you get much-needed rest could be your need.

Whatever the need, Caring Voices is there to help by providing support.

Is Caring Voices Right For My Family?

Ask yourself the following questions. If your answer is yes to several of these questions, Caring Voices is right for your family.

  • Is finding temporary care for your child a problem?

  • Is it important that you and your spouse/partner enjoy an evening alone or with friends, without the responsibility of caring for your child with special needs?

  • Do you need time to relax and refresh so that you will be able to better meet the needs of your child?

  • If you had appropriate care for your child with special needs, would you use the time for a special activity with your other children?

  • Are you concerned that, in the event of a family emergency, there will be no one with whom you would feel secure about leaving your child?

  • Do you avoid going out because you feel it would be asking too much of your family or friends to care for your child with a disability?

  • Does your child require a caregiver who has specific experience and/or special training to meet his or her care needs?

  • Do you think that you would be a better parent if you had a break now and then?
