The Groden Center

The Groden Center Day and Residential Programs enhance the lives of children and youth with autism, behavioral disorders, and developmental disabilities, and their families.
We foster greater independence and inclusion through provision of intensive learning and living environments where our students can achieve a balance across all life skills.
The Center is dedicated to understanding the developmental needs of its children and youth, investigating the most effective educational and treatment strategies, and contributing this information to the related fields.
The Groden Center Day and Residential Programs provide a broad range of individualized services in the most normal and least restrictive settings possible.
Instruction is provided in functional skill development, communication, emotional and social development, physical and recreational skills, domestic responsibilities, community awareness, adaptive living skill and vocational education.
