Franklin Academy is a college preparatory school, accredited by the new england association of schools and colleges, specializing in serving students with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Nonverbal Learning Differences and Asperger's Syndrome.
Our program is designed to support our students' learning style and to enhance their strengths, while responding appropriately to the challenges of ASD, NLD and AS which can include some of the following features: poor time management skills, organizational difficulties, dyspraxia, visual-spatial weaknesses, slower processing speed, fine motor difficulties, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and problems with abstract conceptual reasoning, subtle social cues, and transitions. Compensatory strategies to address these challenges, as well as the development of social skills and independent living skills, are programmatic priorities.
Franklin Academy's small classes, the multi-modal and differentiated instruction, and close student-faculty relationships are of particular benefit for all of our students.
