Grades 1-12 School Program

Our school programs are created for students who have autism spectrum disorder or similar learning differences such as sensory integration difficulties, impairments in social interaction, and difficulties with emotional control and interpersonal skills.

We work with our students and their families to focus on their individual strengths while we implement strategies to overcome emotional challenges, develop positive peer relationships, and achieve academic success. Each student has an Individualized Program Plan (IPP), which is designed to address their specific educational needs.

The school program places a strong emphasis on academic independence, social behavior, communication, and self-regulation for students aged 6 to 20 years of age. Classes are held during regular school day hours, five days a week.
