Somerset Hills Learning Institute is preparing children for more promising lives.
With our reliance on education and treatment approaches derived from the science of applied behavior analysis, some of our students will graduate to traditional education settings.
Others will graduate into the workforce and independent living. None will be relegated to a bleak and inhumane future.
Somerset Hills Learning Institute employs the curriculum proven to teach children the functional skills they need to succeed at home, at play, at school and in the workforce.
The Institute delivers a unique blend of science and compassion to meet the needs of each of its students.
At Somerset Hills Learning Institute, children with autism are doing what was thought to be impossible just a short time ago.
Children once silent and "cold" are speaking with parents and asking for hugs and tickles.
Youngsters once thought "joyless" can now be seen skateboarding, taking ballet classes, riding rollercoasters—the same things typically-developing children enjoy.
They master academic skills, do chores and participate fully in family activities.
They learn to behave appropriately at religious services, in restaurants, and on vacations.
Over time, our students acquire all the necessary skills to live and work as productive citizens in their communities.
