For over fifty years, the Bucks County Intermediate Unit (Bucks IU) has provided exceptional special education programs and services to children and youth with disabilities between the ages of birth to twenty-one. SEQUEL allows the Bucks IU to expand upon that expertise to include adults with disabilities over the age of twenty-one. Those participating in these adult programs may also find comfort in the familiarity of having had services from the Bucks IU throughout their early development.

With decades of knowledge and experience to build on, our professional staff is uniquely equipped to help determine and understand each individual’s needs, objectives, and challenges - SEQUEL has been specially designed to be person-centered and growth oriented.
