Autism Program

Special Education
Students participating in the 10-month autism program, are from ages 5 1/2 to 12 years old and come from the surrounding school districts of Essex County. Autism, characterized by atypical receptive behaviors and deficits in social and communication skills, is the most common of the pervasive developmental disorders and affects an estimated 1.5 million Americans. Students in the program benefit from a one-to-one student-teacher ratio, and instruction by experts in autism and Applied Behavior Analysis. Related services such as speech, physical, and occupational therapy; adaptive physical education; sensory integration programs; and parent support groups are also offered.
