We are collecting donations towards Hurricane Matthew Disaster Relief for damages sustained at Seahorse Institute in Nassau and is in need of a generator. As well, many others in The Bahamas including Nassau, Grand Bahama, Long Island and Andros lost homes and are in need of food and water.
For four days in October 2016 Category 4 Hurricane Matthew lashed the entire chain of Bahamian islands with up to 140 mile per hour winds and torrential rain. Uprooting families and damaging thousands of properties, this storm devastated the small nation. At least 22 islands were severely affected including New Providence, Exuma, Abaco, Eleuthera, Grand Bahama Island, Cat Island among others. Hurricane Matthew was one of the most powerful storms in the country’s history.
Making matters worse, it impacted The Bahamas just one year after many parts of the island nation were previously wrecked by Hurricane Joaquin. The Bahamas now battles an enormous humanitarian crisis. The losses are immeasurable—houses flooded and people losing everything—the trauma unimaginable.

When & Where
Seahorse Institute is a non-profit organization that provides treatment for children, adolescents and adults with Autism and other Developmental delays like Down Syndrome, Intellectual Disabilities, Language Disorders and Learning Disabilities. Seahorse Institute is at the forefront in providing scientific research- based intervention care to unlock the potential of our children. We provide year around programming with a comprehensive curriculum that specializes in the acquisition of language, communication skills, pre-academic and academic independent functioning and socialization skill areas. Individuals treated at the Seahorse Institute can be seen by a variety of healthcare professionals working together in one or more clinical disciplines. These highly trained professionals work to provide coordinated, interdisciplinary care tailored to the special needs of each child. These professionals include Behavior Analysts, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Educational Specialists. Each child is unique and therefore, every student’s program is different. We assess each student’s skills on a daily basis to monitor progress and modify teaching strategies as needed. When problems occur, we do not merely identify them, we look for ways to solve them. Progress is tracked and is measurable. As a result of the low staff to student ratio (ratio varies by program), students receive a high level of reinforcement to achieve optimal success.
