Welcome to the website for our extraordinary school and treatment center. Since 1970, we’ve been working together with our students, residents, their families, and outstanding professionals to bring hope and change to young people and adults who face difficult challenges.
From a residential school for children and community-based homes for adults to supported and shared living opportunities, Latham Centers provides comprehensive care and a path forward for children and adults with disabilities.
Latham Centers offers quality and compassionate residential programs for children and adults with complex special needs, including Prader-Willi syndrome, on Cape Cod and beyond.
"Latham provides the opportunity and possibilities we promised our daughter we would find for her—a safe school environment, a sense of belonging, and access to a caring community. It is hard to have her literally at the other end of the country; however, we have no regrets for the journey our family has charted because we have found the best PWS carefor our daughter.”
Latham Centers is internationally renowned for its expertise and success in working with individuals with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS). PWS is a life-threatening genetic disorder that manifests with insatiable appetite, mild to moderate developmental delays, and emotional and behavioral problems. The syndrome occurs in approximately 1 in 18,000 births and is found in all races and ethnic groups. There is no known cure for PWS.
Latham Centers’ environment is food safe, and its staff members are dedicated, talented, and highly trained. Its unique programs encompass a children’s campus, a transitional home, twelve adult group residences, and supported community living options.
Latham Centers was founded in 1970 to provide residential care, education, and treatment for children ages 8–22. We serve intellectually disabled girls and boys with special needs as well as children and adults with Prader-Willi Syndrome.
