Job Description

We are seeking enthusiastic educators to create an exciting & challenging experience for children with special needs. Help prepare young children for meaningful lives by teaching cognitive, social-emotional and motor skills throughout the day. Join our culture of patient-centered care.

Miracle Kids Success Academy (MKSA) is an early intervention day treatment clinic for children with special needs. Once children are referred to MKSA by their primary care physicians, they must receive a developmental screening. Then, they may be scheduled for therapy evaluations at MKSA or bring recent therapy evaluation reports done elsewhere. To receive Early Intervention Day Treatment habilitation services, a child must have a documented developmental disability or delay, as shown on the results of an annual comprehensive developmental evaluation and qualify for at least one therapy service. Those services include (but are not limited to) fine motor delays, sensory disorders, gross motor delays, speech-language delays, hearing disorders, feeding disorders, developmental delays, cognitive delays and medical needs.

Children are placed in treatment rooms based on their developmental needs and ages. Our treatment rooms are adequately staffed with teachers and teachers' assistants and are designed to celebrate the cultural differences of the children and families we serve. KULA has many licensed occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech-language pathologists on staff to provide needed care to the children who qualify for therapy services. And, MKSA has nurses on staff to serve children with medical needs.

MKSA's services also include developmental/psychological testing by a licensed psychologist, nutritional evaluations and consultations, and audiological evaluations. Our whole treatment team works together and with our patients' families to make sure each child's needs are met.

MKSA typically treats children from birth to Kindergarten. However, we try to expand our services during the summer months to include elementary school-aged children with special needs. If you have a child who may benefit from our services, we would love to hear from you.
