Sharing Expertise in Residential Education


Did you know?
Our Farm & Wildlife Center is home to over 300 farm animals, permanently injured or imprinted wildlife and horses. The main purpose for each animal’s presence is to thrive in the care at Green Chimneys and play a supportive role in educational and animal-assisted therapy for children with special needs. By sponsoring an animal, you are directly supporting the daily care for our most popular teachers—our animals! Give a gift,

Green Chimneys Executive Director Ed Placke offered an educator’s perspective on best practices for students with special needs at two important forums this October:

As a featured speaker, he presented “Educating Students With/Without Disabilities in Residential Care" at A Child Welfare Symposium presented by Fordham University’s Graduate School of Education in West Harrison, NY.

The presentation was also shared with colleagues at the Alliance For Strong Families’ Innovation Design Summit: Accelerating Education Achievement for all Children, held in Chicago, IL.
