In 1948, Laradon Hall was opened as the first school for children with developmental disabilities in the Rocky Mountain Region. Serving adolescents dually diagnosed with a developmental disability and a psychiatric disorder, the school continues to be the only one of its type in the Rocky Mountain Region. Throughout its history, the school program has evolved and expanded, and has even been housed in various locations on Laradon’s campus. In November, 1997, Laradon moved into a new facility – the Robert R. Wilson Education Center.

Due to changing in the tax laws and implementation of managed care, Laradon Hall is facing a serious cut back in funding. They need our help. Contact your elected officials to express your concern for the future of the essential services provided by Laradon Hall.
