Milestones is an intensive approved day school (ages 7-22) focusing on students with neurocognitive deficits (i.e, Asperger’s Syndrome, PDD-NOS, Anxiety, OCD, etc.)   Our program uses a developmental-based philosophy to understand children; our students are missing critical developmental skills or stages.  Milestones helps students by teaching those critical skills to enable true growth that generalizes beyond the walls of our school.  Milestones also has a strong parent-partnership program where parents and staff work in collaboration to help students achieve goals.
 We offer an intensive therapeutic approach with daily instruction on social skills, coping and sensory skills, executive functioning, emotional development, and self-esteem) paired with a rigorous academic curriculum with learning support.
 Milestones also offers an innovative transitions program for students age 16-22 focusing on transitioning to work/college.  This program provides intensive learning of academic skills, work and/or college skills, and a host of executive functioning strategies paired with specific instruction for social skills in the work place or college facility.
 We have a rolling admission and tours of our facility are given weekly.
