Tobinworld

  • Tobinworld is a non-profit school for children and young adults with behavior problems.
  • Typically students have been classified as severely emotionally disabled, autistic or developmentally disabled.
  • Tobinworld seeks to impart to each student the skills and behaviors he or she needs in order to live as happy, normal and productive a life as possible.
  • The program philosophy integrates special education with behavioral psychology and carries out an individual behavior and academic program for each student.
  • Medication is not used at Tobinworld for behavior problems. Instead, we address behavior problems with a consistent behavioral and educational program.
  • Whenever feasible, our goal is to return the student to public school or to a competitive or sheltered work opportunity.
