Located in Lido Beach, the Theresa Academy believes that every child has strengths that can be used as a springboard to learn new skills which can enhance each child’s personal sense of accomplishment. At TAPA, the teachers use a wide variety of teaching methods to accommodate all styles of learning.
The primary goal of their classes is for children with special needs to experience the joy of dance, drama, art, and music. These children benefit in many ways when they participate, including improvement in coordination, overall fitness, focus, listening, balance, self-esteem, self-expression, rhythm, and musicality.
The Theresa Academy will be using their donation to enhance their Saturday Respite Program - the only arts-based Saturday Respite Program in Nassau County specifically created for children with special needs.
Congratulations to The Theresa Academy for being voted the recipient of our initial donation, and many thanks to Charter Member Annamarie Bondi-Stoddard whose enthusiasm for the work done by this charity touched all of the members of 100 Women Who Care about Long Island!
