These days many of us are quarantining and are very aware of meeting social distancing guidelines. Consequently, we have found new ways to keep ourselves busy. With a little more time to ourselves, many people have taken up new hobbies, learned new skills, or are exploring new topics and insights..

Whether its online videos, TV shows, or social media, the digital age has become an innovative path to learning about any subject.

Lexington Services offers premier special education services. Helping your child meet their milestones and achieve their goals is something we are very passionate about. We also believe that learning happens outside of our centers as well, so we culminated four resources you can check out if you want to learn more about your special needs child, or if you are just simply interested and want to follow along with current special needs topics.
