CAE Gems

The Power of Being Beautiful and Unique

Much like our precious clients, gems are incredibly special; each one a unique and beautiful treasure. The children and adults we serve are incredibly unique as well, which is why we create personalized treatment plans to cater to each individual’s unique needs. We meet our clients where they are and encourage them to learn and grow based on their own goals, the goals of their families and support systems.

With our new CAE GEM (Give Every Month) Club, you can help change the life of someone with special needs by making a recurring monthly donation. Whether it’s $10 or $1,000, your donation will help us continue to grow and provide quality care to remarkable people with special needs.


Instructional Day Facility

Our year-round, school-based program is located in St. Peters, Missouri, and contracts with 12 school districts in the Greater St. Louis Metropolitan area to serve students grades K-12. Each student receives 1:1 or 2:1 support throughout the day as indicated in their individualized education plan (IEP). This program offers expertise from Certified Teachers, Therapists, and Board Certified Behavior Analysts to develop programs specific to learning. Services such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech/language therapy are provided on site as indicated in each student’s plan.

Support Services

Our Adult Day Program opened its doors in 2012, after CAE leadership identified a critical need in the community for support services for adults with severe behavior. Many of our students were making incredible progress at school, graduating, and then getting stuck at home because their families couldn’t find appropriate placement to meet the needs of their loved one. At CAE, we offer one on one support as well as group support depending on the needs of each individual. We believe that everyone deserves to have the proper tools and supports to lead a happy and fulfilling life.
