Our History

A long history of ensuring a brighter future

It began with a vision...

Dr. Leslie Meyer founded the Meyer Center in 1954 with a simple vision: in the right environment, any child can learn. Today the Meyer Center remains dedicated to enriching the lives of children with disabilities so that they might reach their full potential.

What began as a dream in Dr. Meyer’s heart has grown over years to become an indispensable part of the Greenville community. The Meyer Center continues to grow and innovate, providing critical educational and therapeutic services to special needs children. It is a testament to Dr. Meyer’s vision—as well as to the support of the Greenville community—that the Meyer Center continues to help so many wonderful children reach their potential.

The best is yet to come.
