ANIBIC - Serving the Developmentally Disabled
of New York City for Over 50 Years
For Over 50 Years, The Association for Neurologically Impaired Brain Injured Children, ANIBIC, has been providing services to people with special needs. ANIBIC is dedicated to enabling individuals to reach their potential so that they may live as productively as possible. We encourage integration and inclusion in the community and are committed to a person-centered process as we work to serve consumers and their families.
We offer a broad range of services for children as young as five and throughout adulthood. We understand that people with special needs are people first and that their individual challenges are just part of what makes them special.
ANIBIC serves as an advocate in the areas of education, vocational training, legislation and professional development.
When you join with ANIBIC, you become part of an extended family where people care for one another and provide assistance when necessary. We're small enough to know your name, but large enough so that people know ours. Learn more
Health Advisory: COVID-19 Guidance for Operators of Individualized Residential Alternatives (IRAs), Community Residences (CRs) and Private Schools Regarding Visitation
COVID-19 has been detected in multiple communities around New York State. Visitors may introduce COVID-19 infection into the facility. The New York State Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) is issuing the following guidance regarding visitors to IRAs, CRs and Private Schools and other precautions and procedures such facilities must take to protect and maintain the health and safety of their residents and staff during the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
To prevent the introduction of COVID-19 into IRAs, CRs and Private Schools:
Effective immediately, suspend all visitation except when medically or clinically necessary (i.e. visitor is essential to the care of the resident). In addition:
• Any visitors meeting these exceptions must be screened for symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, or fever) or potential exposure to someone with COVID-19 and the duration and number of visits should be minimized.
• IRAs, CRs and Private Schools should attempt to provide other forms of communication to meet the needs of their residents.
• IRAs, CRs and Private Schools must post signage notifying the public of the suspension of visitation in all facility entrances and in parking lots. In addition, these policies should be posted to the facility’s website and social media pages.
Thank you for your efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.
