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

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.

May 7, 2014   //   by Danni Danko Holloway   //   Uncategorized  //  Comments Off

Starbuck[1]Roundup School is a multi-grade Special Education School designed for youth ages 6 to 21. Children are referred to Roundup School by Colorado School Districts when they have had negative experiences in their previous educational environment, or they may have been out of school for an extended period of time due to difficult behaviors. We help children adjust to their new classroom and school environment while addressing any concerns they many have with feeling that they have failed in other educational settings. We work towards building trust and respect, helping children feel safe and confident in their surroundings so that academic improvement and progress can be achieved. At Roundup School we understand that there are no quick fixes to living with a disability, and we strive to help teach, support, and provide opportunities for children attending our school to become part of their own community and to find meaningful and gainful employment post graduation.

Focus on Technology Campaign- Improving and updating teaching software and hardware for Roundup School.

 

A large part of our curriculum is developed to help students understand their interactions with others, their own behavior and how their behavior affects others around them. The more students with autism, Down syndrome and similar diagnosis can understand their own disability and how to use the amazing technological tools available today, the more successful they will be as they move on to the next grade and as functional members of our community. Roundup School’s greatest need at this time is updated technology. We need laptop computers and specific software like Skills Tutor – a comprehensive student improvement program that removes limitations on learning with targeted differentiated instruction.

 Tony Jackson Then and Now

At Roundup, we take pride in the relationships we have with the people we serve and support. One of those people, Tony Jackson, came to our agency at the age of 7. Tony had been in the state system since he was an infant. When our state began deinstitutionalizing children in the mid 1970’s, Roundup was asked to open a home for children with developmental disabilities. Roundup answered this need and continued to open more homes for children with disabilities over the next several years.

Tony is the person Roundup has supported the longest. He is a part of the Roundup family, living today at our Evan’s House and attending Roundup’s Community Participation Program.

Anyone who has ever met Tony knows what a joyful heart he has. He is always ready to greet you with a giant smile and a high five. Some of his favorite activities involve sound and movement. Tony loves trains, planes and buses. He loves to go places. He loves music and singing. He has a keen sense of hearing and identifies many things by their sounds. Tony does the best impressions of animal sounds that I have ever heard. I think back to the 1980’s and the time we took Tony camping with some of our friends. We all had such an awesome time. We had a contest around the campfire making animal noises. Tony won hands down! He is a joy to know and I feel very blessed to have been a part of his life these many years.
