The K.I.S.S. Center For Special Needs, established in 2004, was recently re-named due to the generosity of Ann Dorman Adler & Kenneth Adler. The Adler Center provides a comprehensive range of programs and services for children and teens with developmental disabilities including learning disabilities, language delay, ADHD, and Autism spectrum disorders.
