The Meyer Center for Special Children began with the belief that limitations were rarely absolute. Dr. Leslie Meyer, one of South Carolina’s first orthopedic physicians, began his practice in Greenville in 1951. During his residency at Shriners Hospital, Dr. Meyer concluded that every child, regardless of his or her medical challenges, could benefit from education and therapy services.
At a time when children with disabilities were not permitted to attend public school, Dr. Meyer, a true visionary, led the way for the founding of the Meyer Center in 1954 under the auspices of United Cerebral Palsy, a national organization. In 1983, the Center was renamed The Meyer Center for Special Children, acknowledging Dr. Meyer's contribution as founder and medical director.
Today, as a DSS-licensed childcare provider, Medicaid rehabilitation facility and a S.C. Charter School, accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the Center is the realization of Dr. Meyer’s vision, with more than 175 special-needs preschool children receiving services annually.
The Meyer Center provides quality early childhood education and therapy services for children with disabilities.
