Kansas City Chapter

Chapter Mission

The commitment of the professional membership has been the key to the success of the Association for Learning Environments. We must now build on this tradition by increasing our membership to include sectors now under-represented within the organization. Increasing membership from the communities we serve to include minorities and urban school personnel.

What is the Hilltop Learning Center?

The Blue Valley Early Childhood program impacts nearly 900 children per year with developmental screening, speech/language services, community intervention, and classrooms.  Within our 26 classrooms, we serve approximately 350 students each year.

Our classrooms serve 3-5 year olds, about half of whom have a delay or disability.  Within each classroom of approximately 12 students, half are students with an Individualized Education Plan and half are students who enroll as typically developing peers.  Students attend for 4 half-days per week, following the school calendar.

Our classrooms are served by certified early childhood special education teachers, paraeducators (classroom assistants), speech language pathologists, and occupational therapists.  Other services such as physical therapy or services for children who are visually impaired are available as needed by individual children.  Nearly all of our intervention takes place in the context of naturally occurring classroom routines.
