Lekotek is a long time friend of The George Center and a great resource for our families. We are also proud to provide music therapy for their quarterly Lekomusic groups. They have grown to 6 locations in Atlanta, Duluth, Kennesaw, Peachtree City, Cumming and Gainesville with openings for new families at several of these locations, especially Cumming and Gainesville. There is a fee but it is based on the family’s financial situation and no one is EVER turned away because of financial difficulty.

Last year alone, over six hundred children with a wide range of disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, hearing and/or vision loss, spina bifida, mitochondrial disorders and genetic conditions benefited from Lekotek’s extensive inventory of adapted toys, educational materials, computers and iPads. Lekotek makes it possible for every child to participate with siblings at home and peers at school.
