Our Story

What We’re All About

ICCD was founded in 1986 with the mission of assisting preschoolers with disabilities and their families. In September, 1994 ICCD was selected as a recipient of a New York State Education Department grant to initiate the development of a Special Class in an Integrated Setting (SCIS). Currently, ICCD is a leader in integrated programming with twenty SCIS's operating in New York City and Nassau County. Additionally, we have self-contained classrooms in our Bayside and Rego Park facilities. ICCD was awarded the first New York City contract for Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) services and has been providing UPK classrooms since the programs inception in NYC.
