IIF IT WASN'T FOR THE SCHOOL EE WOULD BE LOST. THEY HAVE DONE WONDERS WITH MY GRANDSON. THEY ALWAYS SAY THERE IS NO CHILD THAT IS NOT TEACHABLE. MY GRANDSON CAN READ, WRITE AND WORKS THE COMPUTER BETTER THAN ME.
The Academy for Autism gives me a sense of peace when I leave my son there. I know the teachers are alert and aware of their students and I dont have to worry that my son will be bullied in any way. The staff is there for all the students needs even if it gets messy in the bathroom, if you know what I mean. They care, they go above and beyond the call of duty.
I never knew that they are not accredited and that my child would never receive any type of diploma. There are other schools out there that are truly FREE and don't have 'mandatory donations' (that you then will be told that it is tuition), and at those other schools your child WILL receive a special diploma or even regular diploma from the state. There are so many things that the director won't tell you. Like the date and times of the board meetings and what occurred at those meetings. The board shouldn't be made up of the employees of the school. Most non-profits have a separate board for accountability reasons, but this doesn't occur here. They are always begging for money but refuse to try and get grant money, which is the best and easiest way for them to receive funding for things the school needs. It is a shame that there are so many brainwashed parents who feel this school is their only choice, when with just a tiny bit of research there are many more better choices for their child with autism.
The School for Autism in my book is a number 1 school. The staff and teachers are so very caring and do their very best to teach these wonderful children to the best of their abilities. I would recommend this school to anyone with a child with disabilities. This is a wonderful school.
Before my twins entered this school they didn't know how to read or write in the first 6months that they entered the academy for autism they learned how to read and write and they are speaking now this school is a great school for kids with autism and the teachers are so dedicated to this children and treat them like if there where there own children they love the kids and kids love them and the therapist aee dedicated to the kids to they teachh them a lot of skills and they learn so much stuff and the director of the school she is amazing she workswith you with anything you need she bends over backwards for the students teacher and therapist she helps in any way she can I eecommend this school to anyone yoy kids are safe here you don't have to worry about them
Excellent school for the kids. The staff work hard every day to help the kids become independents.
excelente trabajo con sus alumnos, dedicacion,m esfuerzo , tolerancia, educacion, disciplina, independencia es lo que se busca en cada uno de estos pequenos gigantes del autismo
The staff is patient and passionate about their job. Each dedicate as much time to each student to make sure each child progresses to success. The attitudes of the staff is positive and hopeful.
Academy For Autism is an amazing school. My child has only attended for a short time and has already made such progess. The staff is great with all the kids.
THIS SCHOOL IS AMAZING. IN ABOUT A MONTH AFTER ATTENDING THIS SCHOOL MY SON IS ABLE TO COMMUNICATE BETTER WITH OTHERS. HE HAS LEARNED HOW TO READ, ADD AND SUBTRACT. HE HAS LEARNED SO MUCH IN SUCH A SMALL AMOUNT OF TIME IN THIS SCHOOL THAT THERE IS NO OTHER WORD TO DESCRIBE HOW AMAZING THIS SCHOOL IS. I CALL ALL OF THE TEACHERS AND STAFF " MIRACLE WORKERS AND FAMILY".
This school is the best that I can find for my daughter , the staff are incredible and the most important there are training to work with autistic children. I recommend this school 100%.

AWESOME SCHOOL. Amazing staff that are loving, nurturing and go the extra mile for each student. The class ratio is perfect for the teacher and staff and allows so much attention for each student to have assistance. I love their therapy staff and their dedication to each session to improve each child skills. Academy for Autism has been a blessing for my family. I will always refer other parents to Academy for Autism.
My school is outstanding because of the care and knowledge that they show each child that they come in contact with. Each teacher and the entire staff makes each parent feel involved in their child's growth and learning experience.
As a grandparent, I had the pleasure of visiting the Academy for Autism where one of our three autistic grandsons is a student. As a retired children's mental health agency director, I was so impressed with the Academy staff and their Director. Their dedication to the children under their care is so apparent. The Academy desperately needs a larger facility so they can accept additional students.
Great school ! My kids have improved in all areas . The staff is great and they really care for the kids . They take the time to learn and work with every need.
I have volunteered here for over a year now and every single staff member made me feel welcome. The director is overall an angel on earth. She personally picks up students from their home if their parents have no means of transportation for them. She's always cheerful and even on her stressful days, she stays positive. There is a waiting list for admissions and the academy only holds three classrooms and one therapy room. Children achieve the best education here with one teacher for every two/three students. We have been fund raising for a while now but it's not enough. Though my internship will be ending soon, I would love to see this wonderful institution grow to the full potential that I know it possess.
Es una estupenda escuela, la cual mi hijo con un diagn stico de Autismo asiste hace 7 a os en la misma escuela. Tanto maestros, terapistas, personal, directora junto con los padres se trabaja a favor y al beneficio y bienestar de nuestros hijos. Dando siempre el m ximo para un mejor funcionamiento de acad mico de nuestros hijos. Me siento muy satisfecha ya que mi hijo recibe una ayuda individual y personalizada en la cual trabajan con el de acuerdo a sus propias necesidades. Todos somos bienvenidos en la escuela para con el personal siempre poder brindar una mejor ayuda del funcionamiento acad mico y mejoras de la instituci n, en un ambiente profesional y el mejor bienestar para nuestros hijos. Estoy muy agradecida por todo lo que hacen por mi hijo,atentamente Isis Pamela R os.
