Impact Summary from the Nonprofit UCP of Central Florida provides special needs' services vital to the Central Florida Community. WHAT OUR COMMUNITY IS FACING:-14% of the children in Central Florida have a disability or developmental delay. -Early intervention education services are limited for families who have children with special needs. When available, most services require families to visit multiple providers. -Special education classroom costs, per child, are between $20,000 and $60,000 annually versus $5,641 for a child in a regular classroom. WHY UCP IS SO IMPORTANT: It's proven that when a child with special needs receives early intervention services, especially before age five, they have a greater potential to reduce or eliminate the effects of their disability or delay. At UCP of Central Florida, we've been the experts for children with special needs for more than 56 years. Our return on investment is measured by what the children's lives look like ""before"" UCP and the quality of their lives ""after"" attending classes and therapy at our campuses. Our effectiveness is calculated by the steps taken by a little boy who wasn't expected to walk and by the number of words spoken by a three-year-old girl who couldn't speak before coming to us. About 75% of families served do not make a living wage. Annually, over 80% of our students reach their education and therapy goals. Between 55% and 65% of the boys and girls who graduate from our charter preschool enroll into regular kindergarten or first grade classrooms instead of costly special education classrooms. This results in a cost savings for the entire community. How? Because for every dollar spent on quality early intervention services for children with special needs, taxpayers save $17 in future costs. UCP's early intervention education services have a far-reaching effect on each child's ability to enter school prepared to succeed and directly shapes their progress for the rest of their lives.
