Our school uses sensory-based therapies such as occupational therapy, speech therapy, and music therapy tailored to bring out the best in your child.
You can count on extensive experience in this field to help provide the best learning experience for your child. At The Arbor School, we follow a developmental approach and meet each student at his or her level.
Academic, therapeutic, and social goals are written based on the child`s developmental level and include specific multi-sensory goals to help them progress.
Children with autism tend to develop socially and academically with scattered skills, unlike children with other disabilities.

School Notes

Arbor School students have diagnoses such as ADHD, High-Functioning Autism, learning disabilities, Down syndrome, and other unique abilities. Our school was created to meet our students' needs through the Greenspan Floortime approach to achieve sensory and emotional integration through therapies such as occupational, speech, language, music, and an art class with multi-intelligence-based academic learning. The late Dr. Stanley Greenspan developed the Greenspan Floortime Approach. Floortime meets children where they are and builds upon their strengths and abilities through interacting and creating warm relationships. Therapeutic, academic, and social goals are written based on the child`s development level and include specific multi-sensory goals to help them progress. The Arbor School team is deeply dedicated to children and young adults with autism and other unique abilities.
All classrooms at Arbor School are sensory-based. Each class is set up to meet the needs of the students with bean bags, low tables for floor sitting, space to stand, quiet spaces, and natural lighting. Our therapists collaborate with our teachers, ensuring that all aspects of the child`s needs are met.
