DuBard School Advisory Board

Page Content

The DuBard School Advisory Board was established in 1992 to support and promote the school, its services and the DuBard Association Method®. Since then, the volunteer board members have generously donated their time, resources and services to our students and their families.  

Goals of the Advisory Board include the following:

  • To assist with fundraising efforts to maintain quality educational and therapeutic programs for students with severe communication disorders
  • To educate people in the community, state, region and country about the services offered at DuBard School
  • To encourage the use of the DuBard Association Method® as a multisensory teaching-learning strategy
