Home Program Department
Our Home Program serves
145 children with
special needs birth to three in their homes, one to five hours a week with a 1:1 ratio. Home Program is known as the long arms of The Wylie Center as it sends nine staff to the far reaches of both Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Children are referred to this program through school districts and Inland Regional Center.

Did you know that many of children that come to us through Home Program end up receiving services through Medical Therapy or our Autism Spectrum Intervention Clinic? That is because Home Program is able to recognize other needs and refer a family to other departments. This is part of our Wylie Center philosophy of wrap around services to ensure every child gets the help they need.

If your life has been touched by one of the Home Program staff, please send them a shout out on Facebook!

This St. Patrick's Day man craft with shamrock templates is a great way to turn simple shamrocks into something unique and fun. This happy guy makes a fantastic St. Patrick's day decoration for your front door and is a great craft for kids of all ages to do!



Green and white construction paper
2 googly eyes
Black crayon or marker
Large shamrock template
Small shamrock template



Click on Printables and print the large shamrock template out on green construction paper.  Cut out the shamrock.

Print the small shamrock template out on green construction paper.  Cut out the four smaller shamrocks. 

Cut 4 strips of white construction paper that are approximately 1 inch wide.  Fold the strips back and forth to create an accordion fold appearance. 

Glue two white strips on either side of the large shamrock to form arms.  Glue two white strips at the base of the large shamrock to form legs. 

Glue the two small shamrocks to the ends of the arms and the two small shamrocks to the ends of the legs.
