"Helping individuals with learning challenges in rural areas achieve their full potential by providing access to a shared network of emotional, educational, and therapeutic resources"
What We Do
Helping Individuals Grow
Turtle Wing Foundation serves as a resource hub. We connect families who have children with learning challenges with the services and support they need to be successful. We are dedicated to changing lives. The Foundation’s goal is to help individuals “fly” academically, socially, and spiritually.
Academically: In programs such as academic tutoring, academic coaching, and learning labs, participants can grow in their ability to learn and progress in their education.
Socially: In programs such as social skills groups, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy, Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Aged-Out Programming, participants are provided the opportunity to create and maintain friendships, interact properly in social situations, and have the same enriching experiences as their peers.
Spiritually: All of our providers & programs allow the individuals participating to be fully comfortable in who they are, learn and grow from their hardships, and persevere towards the best quality of life possible. We strive to create a culture of acceptance within the communities we serve.
Last year, Turtle Wing Foundation financially supported over 300 individuals with learning differences receive the services they needed. Almost 700 families were enrolled in our parent support network. Hundreds more were touched by our early intervention, supplemental services, and education and advocacy efforts.
Turtle Wing was founded in 2011 in memory of Jackson Allan Hooper. Jack, who was diagnosed with high functioning Autism, died suddenly just prior to his 10th birthday. His passing sparked a fire within his family and community to help families who struggle with all learning differences.
