OUR PHILOSOPHY

The Autism Academy of Education and Development strives to improve the lives of each student, their family, and the community. The Academy will achieve this by addressing the needs of every student academically, socially, and behaviorally.

autism3The “Character” program we offer provides a solid foundation to build upon to ensure every student becomes a valued, productive, and successful person able to accomplish their highest potential as well as contribute to their communities. The character program has key components designed to teach our students strategies for “Anti-Bullying”. By teaching children with autism, we make sure that they are able to progress by participating in activities, pushing themselves academically, and encouraging positive behavior. The Autism Academy provides the support and resources to allow each student to flourish in a strong values-based environment with a focus on compassion, allowing students to attain their highest level of academic and social achievement.

The Academy has partnered with the “Genius” program to allow our students to find purpose and meaning in their lives and enjoy closer friendships/relationships, as well as find the courage and passion to create their own future without feeling “different”. Click here to find out more about the “Genius” Program!
