HISTORY •Beyond The Spectrum was borne from the desire to see all children progress and succeed. It was established so parents and families can receive support to meet the developmental needs of their child.

Beyond The Spectrum Founder Debra Ciliento has worked with children for over 30 years. Debra specialized in Early Childhood Education and recognized her desire to offer interprofessional therapy  services for children while operating her own early childhood center.  Her career path changed so she could gain more experience working with children with all different abilities. She sold her early childhood center and began working in the public school sector.  Debra’s focus has been in Special Education for 14 years. She worked with children from toddlers to age 21, including those but not limited to Autism Spectrum Disorder, in schools, homes, and in the community.  

Debra has always had a natural affinity for kids but receives the most joy helping those with different abilities. Seeing children progress and overcoming obstacles is what she loves the most. In addition to her desire to reach the needs of children and their families. Debra attributes much of her inspiration in establishing Beyond The Spectrum from her own four children as well as the team of therapists and educators who she has been blessed to work with over the last 14 years.

Classes and open gym time will be created for all children — especially those who were unable to thrive in a typical class or setting. Parents will have the opportunity to join a parent support group to assist in ways to help one another in the same. or similar position. We do not want you or your child to face challenges alone.

We are here to meet the needs of children and their families and assist in any way we can. 

At Beyond The Spectrum, children get the support needed, regardless of their challenges.  Parents will have a place outside their school system to track their child’s progress.  Having access to a team of licensed, professional therapists, educators and parents.
