New Beginnings is dedicated to helping children with ASD learn and grow towards greater independence.
We view autism as a spectrum of developmental disorder of an organic etiology which has at its core profound impairments in the areas of socialization, communication, sensory responsiveness, adaptive behavior, and, often, academic development.
Together with the family we address those areas in natural contexts with the ultimate goal being the integration of our students into the larger community.
Our approach derives from research and best practices in addressing those deficits particular to the autism spectrum.
