Non-Profit School for Children with Neuro-Diverse Needs Coming to Area

There's a new school coming to the Milwaukee area.

One that officials say will help children with special needs get the attention they need.

Plans for a school aimed at helping children with neuro-diverse needs will soon become a reality.

"We started Bloom360 Learning Community to really fill a gap that we perceived to be in the community for children with neuro-diverse needs like ADD, ADHD, autism. Really any child that learns differently," said Founder and President Laura Rauman.

Founder Laura Rauman came up with the idea to create Bloom360 Learning Community after facing some challenges with her daughter Morgan. 

"She is on the autism spectrum, and just a joyful, funny humorous, strong-willed little girl. Her strengths and her ability to shine in the typical school was not something that we were really seeing," said Rauman. 

The non-profit school is set to open in the Milwaukee/Waukesha area this summer.

They will focus on children from kindergarten to high school, nurturing them on development and helping them thrive outside of school.

Craig Frasa believes bloom 360 will help his son Darren who has cerebral palsy. 

 "He's been pulled out of the academics from OT and speech," he said. "Here I think it's going to be more of an integral part of the day, and I really think it's going to be good for kids like him."

"Our goal for our kids to really help them be the best versions of themselves," said Rauman. 

If you're interested in enrolling your student at the school, there's another informational session next month.
