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.
