Nathan Sklar is the executive director of Comprehensive Kids Developmental School, a not-for-profit, special education pre-school for developmentally delayed children between the ages of 3 to 5 years. Children are referred by the NYC Department of Education, and receive free busing and services with high teacher-pupil ratios. The school day includes individual and group therapies (speech, occupational, physical, and counseling) as recommended on child’s individualized education program, and the curriculum reflects an understanding and appreciation of multiculturalism and diversity.
A New York City non-profit school for children with developmental issues needed funding in order to expand their facility. Aside from being a non-profit organization, they lacked the three years of operating history, and had negative assets for the first two years since they were still paying off their start up costs. Although there were no prior issues, it was concluded that a non-profit organization dealing with the Board of Education was not easily bankable.
