I can't even begin to explain how much Nashoba Learning Group has helped my daughter and my family. The teachers/therapists are well trained, loving, creative and such hard workers. They get the best out of her each and every day and the do it with love and enthusiasm. This is, in my opinion, the best school in the country for children with autism. There is also a great parent community for support if parents desire this. Every part of the school is run with great professionalism and care, with the highest standards of education for our children. I am so grateful to have my child at Nashoba Learning Group because I know that it is her very best chance at being the best that she can be.
Great school where kids feel the love of their teachers while learning daily living and academic skills in a warm, interesting and supportive community. As a parent I feel the staff listen to me and value my thoughts. I'm thankful that my son is in very good hands and around people that really care about him.
Nashoba Learning group is a fantastic private school in Bedford, MA that services students with autism. I have been an employee at NLG for 10 years and I couldn't imagine working anywhere else. The staff and administration are fabulous and the students are amazing! The teachers put in so much time, work, detail, and love into everything they do and it is evident by the amount of progress each student makes on a daily basis. The students actually enjoy coming to school and their teachers become their best friend(s). I highly recommend this school to any parent with an autistic child.
Nashoba Learning Group's greatest feature is its philosophy that the student comes first. The instruction, the curriculum, and the supports are all completely customized for each learner, and they are constantly changed, tweaked, and updated as the learner changes. The teachers are all caring and deeply invested, and they work hard to ensure each student is making the most progress possible while feeling happy and motivated. I think Nashoba also excels at thinking outside the box when it comes to using Applied Behavior Analysis in creative ways to teach and change behavior. Also, as an organization, Nashoba promotes parent involvement and input and tries hard to incorporate families' priorities when creating educational goals. Finally, as an employer, Nashoba is supportive and encouraging to its staff.
Nashoba Learning Group is an extraordinary school for individuals on the autism spectrum. The clinical expertise combined with the great care and affection they have for their students makes it one of the best in the state. The environment is like a typical school environment and the collaboration between staff and family is unparalleled. I wish every child on the spectrum could attend NLG. I am certainly so so grateful that mine do!
Doesn't focus on recovery at all. For that parents would need to find a private provider who would provide extensive executive function and theory of mind programs. If you are looking for basic fulfillment of Mass. curriculum and vocational training than this center is fine.
NLG provides 1-on-1 ABA therapy for students with autism. Completely individualized program for each student. Social and communication skills are emphasized and vocational training included in the school day.
