Autism Schools Because Your Child Deserves The Best

77 / 100

Autism School

School is a huge piece of our lives.  I consider school the work of childhood. It’s important for adults to find a job with a good fit for their schedule, the personality of the job, and the type of work. 

Schools for our kids are no different.  



School Options

These three things need to fit.

  1. Schedule
  2. Personality 
  3. Appropriate work


Schedule:   A variety of school day schedules are out there.  

Traditional:   5 days a week, 8-2

Late start:   5 days a week, 10-4

Year round:   45 days in school, 15 days off

Modified:   half a day off, half a day in school


Traditional autism school year:    This is your traditional neighborhood school.

Private school:    Religious, language immersion, special education and others.  Privately funded.  Sometimes selective.

Montessori:    Schools that highly emphasize exploration and experience in the learning process

Charter Schools:    Free, but may be selective.  Often have a focus on a certain educational strength ie:  the art
