Build Up Michigan
Early Childhood Special Education 
Build Up Michigan works to identify young people from birth to age 26 residing in Clare and Gladwin counties who have physical, social-emotional, or learning conditions that prevent them from succeeding in school. We strive to meet a young person's needs so they can receive the best education possible. Services are provided locally through Clare-Gladwin RESD.
