Local artists collaborate with the students of Chase's Place to create a unique collection of "Little Masterpieces.” The collection combines artwork created independently by Chase's Place students and pieces embellished by professional artists who donate their time and talent.
This collaboration provides the students of Chases Place opportunities to work on functional skills that carry over to their everyday activities. Some of these skills include fine and gross motor movements to increase strength & range of motion, positive socialization, and executive function skills such as attention to task, sequencing, communication, and following directions.
Proceeds from each piece assist with programming expenses to help ensure continued growth in social-emotional health, community training, recreation, communication, functional academic skills and motor abilities.
Chase’s Place School, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization, opened its doors in 2003 as one of the first schools of its kind in the DFW area. It serves students ages 5 to young adult with cognitive disabilities including Autism, Cerebral Palsy, traumatic brain injuries and neurological disorders. Chase’s Place has a built in curriculum that includes social emotional health, sensory integration, daily living skills, community training, speech, occupational therapy, recreational therapy as well as traditional academic subjects. Unlike other schools catering to this population, Chase’s Place boasts a 1:2 staff/student ratio giving each student an optimal amount of individual attention.
At Chases’ Place, we believe that every person possesses unique talents and qualities that enrich their lives and the lives of others.
Our mission is to support students in discovering these abilities so they may develop independence to their maximum potential, allowing them to live to the fullest.
