That’s a Wrap…Another Successful Year At Roundup School.

Jun 9, 2015   //   by admin   //   Uncategorized  //  Comments Off on That’s a Wrap…Another Successful Year At Roundup School.

School Graduation 15 019 School Graduation 15 015One of the best days to visit Roundup School is on Graduation Day.  Friday, May 15th, was a celebration of the many accomplishments of students and staff at our school. We had 3 young adults graduate and many staff and students receive recognition for their efforts. One young man graduating proclaimed, “Amen and Alleluia”, after he received his diploma. The school staff shared how dramatically his behavior had improved over the year. Awards were given out for the best smile to the most improved reader in the group. We had a number of staff members receive Years of Service Awards for their 5 plus years of service. This year, Charlie Tomkins celebrates 30 years of service. Whitney Smoote celebrates 15 years of service.  Steve DeFelice celebrates 10 years as a teacher at Roundup School.  Those staff receiving 5 years of service awards were teachers, Kyle Reno and Jesse Tomkins, and paraprofessionals Jacob Vigil and Anthony Whaley. The festivities concluded with a luncheon prepared by the Roundup School Staff. The desserts served were prepared by the Roundup Students who participate in cooking class. Board members, families, staff and friends were blessed by the fun experience of another year completed.  Thank you goes out to all who helped with this great day!

Roundup Fellowship is a Colorado nonprofit organization providing programs and services for people with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and similar intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are devoted to caring for the needs of more than 100 individuals and families every day. We see those in our care as having the same basic needs and feelings that any person has. We challenge and aid each individual to develop physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually, so that they may acquire the attitudes, habits and skills necessary to function in society. Roundup Fellowship’s mission is to serve children and adults who have developmental disabilities – recognizing their worth, affirming their contributions, and promoting dignity in all relationships.

Our clientele’s disabilities transcend racial, ethnic, educational, social and economic differentiators. Most have substantial, long-term needs for assistance with normal, day-to-day activities of life. Many suffer from dual diagnosis (mental or physical impairments compounded by mental health issues). Our clients are highly susceptible to abandonment, crimes, homelessness, poverty and abuses. For many Roundup Fellowship is the first place in their life where individuals with special needs can learn to trust others and be treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.

We operate 4 intensively-staffed teaching homes/2 adult group homes in Denver and 2 children’s group homes in Colorado Springs, a school/day-treatment for children in Colorado Springs, a community participation program for adults in both Colorado Springs and Denver, a transitional program for individuals aging out of publicly funded programming in Colorado Springs, supported-living apartments for adults in Denver, and supported employment and job development services in Denver.

An alternative to public school for children with developmental disabilities

Nov 25, 2014   //   by Crystal Morgan   //   Uncategorized  //  Comments Off on An alternative to public school for children with developmental disabilities

0c84ff57ad1bf84873270e614511e188[1]As the children arrive at Roundup Fellowship, they are greeted with brightly painted walls that proudly display the children’s work. Each face has a smile on it and everyone gives an enthusiastic hello. One key phrase at Roundup is peace (with the hand gesture) and everyone gives lots of high-fives for encouragement for one another. The children are ready for class. When making the best choices for a child with a disability there are times that families are faced with very difficult decisions. Where does a child with a severe disability receive their Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) if their behaviors are too extreme for the public schools to appropriately handle?

An Alternative to Public School

Roundup Fellowship is a beautiful and friendly alternative placement school that a child with a dual diagnosis from 8 to 21 may attend to have their needs met while assuring that the child is receiving a FAPE in accordance with IDEA. In Roundup’s Day Treatment Program children with disabilities receive instructional and therapeutic learning and an IEP is followed the same as with general education schools. The children are provided with therapies such as speech as well as receiving a wide variety of accommodations, modifications or assistive technologies as the IEP calls for. Additionally, the child with a disability will receive behavior management, life-skills, and many other areas to nurture healthy development throughout the child with a disabilities’ life.
