Answers to Frequently Asked Questions 

1. What is a Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care Facility (PPEC)?

A Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care Facility or PPEC is a unique facility/system created to care for children who are medically fragile. The basic concept was spawned from the ADA federal regulations. These regulations were created to assure that the handicapped population of the United States receives the same opportunities as the typical population.
A PPEC is a non-residential, day treatment care option for children who are medically fragile. The PPEC regulations were set to describe the minimum standards, staff and facility features required to care for children with special needs. The possibilities on how to actually achieve this are great.
The Banyan program gives all children enrolled the same opportunities for education, creativity, and fun. Children are in their developmentally appropriate classrooms together. They sing, eat and play together. Banyan has given this special population and their families what they asked for, the most normal enjoyable environment for the care of their children.
