About Us

Our vision is to create a world of inclusion and acceptance for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Since 1969, Lakemary has been a leader in providing individualized services for children and adults with autism spectrum disorder and other intellectual/developmental differences.

Each year, Lakemary touches the lives of more than 450+ individuals and their families. Our Children's Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF) and K-12 school are located on a beautiful 32-acre campus in Paola, KS. In addition, our Miami County and the Johnson County headquarters provide adult programs and services with our same mission.

From early intervention to retirement supports for older adults, Lakemary provides a lifetime of opportunities for those we serve.

The Lakemary difference is building lives of possibility EVERY day.
