School Notes

  • The Atlas School is a non-profit, non-public school serving children and young adults aged 7-21 years diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders. A truly individualized full-day educational program is developed for each student. The program uses a multi-strategic approach, data analysis as well as evidence-based and cutting-edge interventions and techniques. Core to every student's program is their social-emotional development and deepening of communication skills. The school's curriculum, the Atlas Map, addresses the whole child in a comprehensive manner and involves working with students across all areas of development. We place a heavy emphasis and top priority on communication as it is integral to every other portion of a student's life and is the cornerstone to lifelong social learning. With an effective means of communication, our students can engage in a limitless number of interactions where they will learn about the world, other people and themselves.
