We believe in constant research and development to maintain modern strategies to provide the best integrated and individualized training.


Striving for independence is what it is all about for students. We understand that specially trained staff with the heart and vision of our mission is essential to the success of our program. We provide an environment that inspires creativity, encourages individuality, and supports our students. It is our goal to make sure each student feels safe to express their thoughts and feelings.

We understand that each person with autism is unique and will require specialized small group to individualized programming to achieve their highest level of independent living and well being.
