Mychal's Learning Place believes that children and adults with developmental disabilities deserve to be challenged with opportunities that build self-esteem and independence, creating long term success for life.

In doing so, we encourage each child and adult to develop their individual talents and the skills necessary for them to interact and contribute to society.

Our after school program is designed specifically for youth beginning at age 11 with developmental disabilities. Our facilities in Culver City and Hawthorne, serve the Greater Los Angeles communities. We provide life skills training, social and recreational activities, homework assistance and community integration. Our program challenges students with developmental disabilities to optimize their potential. And of course, we have fun.

"Path to Independence" Adult Day Program for young adults ages 18 - 30 focuses on independent living skills and on-the-job training. Please CLICK HERE for more information.

Our MILE Program (Mychal’s Independent Living Experience) is a weekend program (2 Saturdays per month), beginning age 18, that teaches life-skills necessary to live independent, productive and meaningful lives. It includes family training to support, enhance and maintain the lessons taught. The goal is for students to learn skills necessary for daily living and gainful employment.
