Programs for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders

The ASD Nest program is a program for high functioning students with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) that takes place in an integrated co-teaching class in a community school. The ASD Nest program helps children learn how to function well academically, behaviorally and socially in school and in their community. The ASD Nest program provides an educational therapeutic environment in which the requisite supports are provided by a trans-disciplinary team of specially trained educators and therapists.

The ASD Horizon program is offered primarily in self-contained classes in community schools for students with autism spectrum disorders who work well in a class that has a ratio of eight students and two adults. This program is the result of a collaboration with the New England Center for Children and utilizes a curriculum that is based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis whereby students benefit from individualized instructional plans during some parts of the school day.
