Our Schools provide an environment that facilitates healthy emotional, personal and physical growth for all students with mild to severe special needs including autism, intellectual disabilities and other multiple challenges. Students are encouraged to learn and work cooperatively and independently within their abilities. Maintaining positive attitudes, habits of mutual respect, self-esteem, self-expression/advocacy, decision-making, and tolerance are stressed. Learning activities are integrated into all areas of the program and are designed to build and enhance the productivity, knowledge and self-esteem of each student in our care. Student Residential life provides our students the opportunity to extend their learning beyond the classroom and employment environments. Students live in three to seven bedroom homes in our beautifully landscaped neighborhood. Our goal is to empower each student with the skills to live as independently as possible, maximizing his/her potential to enjoy a healthy, happy and safe life, as a productive member of their community.
