The Little Light House is a Christian Developmental Center for Children with Special Needs from birth to 6 years old. Tulsa’s Little Light House is internationally recognized as providing some of the most highly individualized special education and therapeutic early intervention services in the world. A trans-disciplinary team approach maximizes a comprehensive knowledge from professionals who work collaboratively to design prescriptive programs for each child and assist every child in reaching their maximum potential. Through a variety of programs and schedules these services are carried out by highly credentialed teachers, therapists and specialists who represent decades of pediatric experience. Full day services are offered Monday through Thursday from 8:30 AM – 1:30 PM. These classes operate on a year-round twelve month calendar. Early Intervention classes are offered as a part time program where caregivers attend and learn along with their child for two hour classes once a week.
LLH is tuition-free for families and does not receive any government or United Way funding. Support comes from individuals, organizations, corporations and foundations. In addition, LLH hosts four annual fundraisers each year bringing in about 40% of the $3.9 million dollar operating cost that allows our staff of over 70 members to provide services to over 200 children and families, support nearly a thousand volunteers, and train over 1,000 college and career students each year.
We at the Little Light House believe that all children are a gift from God with the potential to achieve specific milestones to advance their quality of life. We strive for excellence by utilizing a Bible-based curriculum in a fun and loving atmosphere. We believe in an individualized, trans-disciplinary and God-centered approach to education-an approach that joins parents, professionals, and the Holy Spirit as partners in order to nurture the spirit, mind, and body of the children and their families. Our commitment incorporates being called to work/volunteer with children with special needs. The Little Light House encourages a positive outlook on the future, based on trust in a loving heavenly Father.
