Wing Lake Developmental Center

Wing Lake is one of several programs in Oakland County serving students with severe cognitive impairments (SCI) and severe multiple impairments (SXI) from age three through twenty-six years of age. Operating costs are covered through a combination of a countywide special education levy and state funding provided to resident school districts. The program is operated by the Bloomfield hills School District. Eligible students reside within the 28 resident public school districts in Oakland County.

Wing Lake provides a comprehensive educational program in a caring and supportive environment where each student's fullest potential is the staff's greatest concern. An educational team evaluates the student's abilities in the developmental areas of gross motor, fine motor, self-care, language and pre-academic skills: math, reading, science and social studies. An individual Educational Plan is written to meet the needs of each student. Long-range goals and short-term objectives are developed and progress is continually monitored. Program activities include swimming, bowling, gardening, adaptive physical education, music, prevocational activities and community-based instruction. We strive to teach as many skills of daily living and self-care as possible to increase independence.

Staff assists our students with transition planning in anticipation of program completion.

The school is open for instruction 205 days. A full school day is provided for students ages three through twenty-six.

The Wing Lake staff is extremely proud of their national reputation for providing quality educational programming for our students.
