Support Team Looking Upwards!
May 25, 2016
Looking Upwards is a place where people discover new possibilities. It’s where adults with developmental disabilities explore what’s meaningful to them and create satisfying lives. It’s a place where families of children with special healthcare needs find support so their children get the best start in life and thrive as they grow. Looking Upwards is a resource for school departments and a variety of professionals, expanding their options for how they serve their communities.
For over 35 years, Looking Upwards has been helping individuals to live to their fullest potential. We are a Middletown-based, nonprofit agency that serves over 900 children and adults throughout Rhode Island.
Our staff provides individualized services based upon each person’s needs. Team members include direct support workers, nurses, physical therapists, speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, behavioral consultants, family and individual therapists, service coordinators and support staff.
Looking Upwards’ team of caring professionals truly listen. At Looking Upwards, people face challenges and know they are not alone, as our staff walks alongside, offering support, identifying solutions, fostering independence and celebrating the small triumphs and leaps of accomplishment that make a vital difference in life.
We hope you will join us on October 23rd and help us in our mission to support individuals with disabilities to lead fulfilling lives.
