Nova Southeastern University / Mailman Segal Family Center / Baudhuin School for Young Children

The Mailman Segal Center’s Baudhuin School opened in 1984 to nurture and develop preschool-aged children with speech pathology. Over time, the school has transformed to include children with autism spectrum diagnoses, and now provides comprehensive educational techniques that address speech, coordination and neurological developmental disorders.

With a rich history of improving the lives of children through applied behavioral analysis and education, Baudhin is recognized as the standard of care. Located on the Nova Southeastern University Campus in Davie, Florida, the school serves over 150 children from three years old to pre-kindergarten in partnership with Broward County Schools in South Florida.

In 2010/11 school year, the Agrawal Family Foundation donated iPads for classroom learning at Baudhuin. The donation supports the Baudhuin School’s approach to encouraging each child’s unique ability to learn and express their understanding of different concepts. This project was an initiative by the Baudhuin School to determine if the Apple devices could help children learn basic life skills. The end result was a new way for children to communicate with their parents and teachers, and showcase their reading, writing, and cognition abilities. By leveraging technology in the classroom, each child can creatively achieve their special potential.
