At this time, I am saddened to let you know that B.L.A.S.T. Educational Services will be closing.

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID situation, we had to move out of the building where we have been fortunate to have been servicing the community for 18 years. This difficult decision was made for the health and safety of our students, their families and all the people involved in our program. We have been fortunate to have met so many wonderful families over the years .

To the many children we have had the opportunity to spend time with, we wish you all the best that life has to offer!

If you would like to contact me, please email me at [email protected]

Thank you for your interest in the program.

Margie Pedron

B.L.A.S.T. was opened in order to fulfill the need for supplemental specialized social skills instruction for children and adolescents with social cognitive deficits. After researching other programs, curriculums, and strategies, the B.L.A.S.T. program was developed and the facility opened in November of 2002. The participation of students in the program has grown from a handful of students to over 70 students per session. The children range in age from 6 17.

Margie Pedron, B.Ed., earned her Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Miami, with a major in Special Education and a minor in Speech Pathology.

She has taught children with special needs in both California and Florida since 1976. Margie has held a variety of positions in the Broward County school system, teaching students of varying exceptionalities in both self-contained and inclusive settings. She was a classroom teacher for children with autism spectrum disorders from 1997 until 2002, specializing in mainstreaming and inclusion strategies.
