The Admissions Process


The Children We Serve

Our student community is comprised of students who require a combination of educational supports and accommodations which enable more learning opportunities. Not all of our students have autism. Many of our students have other developmental and learning disabilities requiring small class sizes, a behavioral support plan, and staggered academic knowledge. Students who excel in our program require the structure of Applied Behavioral Analysis  (ABA), Speech, OT, and PT, and an educational curriculum, coupled with the supports and accommodations needed for learning. Many of our students have attended a more structured ABA program and are now ready to take that learning into our classrooms. Our approach to ABA is simple. When we combine the foundations of ABA with academics, we can provide our students with the tools and resources they need to acquire independent living in both school and home.
