Autism Schools in USA

Putting your autistic child into school for the first time, ever, or transitioning to a new class or facility is an enormous task that requires months or even years of planning. Even with the abundant resources online, how do you separate the good from the not so good?

Making this choice is highly dependent on where you live; your community’s resources and the availability of educational services, as well as the quality of both.

Nationwide, there are a variety of specialized schools that focus on the unique needs of children & teens with developmental, emotional or behavioral issues. Some are publicly funded charter schools; some are tuition-based private schools for which families may qualify for financial assistance through various government programs.

Every parent has different ideas about what a good school should provide for their child. Connecting with local organizations or parents who might be able to give their perspective on the school you’ll eventually choose might give you some insight in making your decision. No matter which school you choose, evaluation of a good fit for your child is ongoing, but hopefully we’ve given you a good place to start.

Below we have highlighted some of the top schools for children with autism across the country.

    There is a special needs school in Las Vegas, Nevada that is for special needs that has great programs, ABA therapy, a sensory room and different things for kids up to 22 years old to learn to care for themselves. Ex: mock apartment, laundromat and cafe. There is also a garden and interesting field trips. They have a nurses office that looks like an emergency room. Each classroom comes with its own bathroom and quiet room. It is part of the school district and is free for those who qualify. Variety School Las Vegas

    Sonnenberg LLC is a fantastic autism school. They have 2 locations in Wisconsin. Pleasant Prairie Wi is ABA therapy school and in Mt Pleasant wisconsin has both the therapy center and a private school pre-k – 5th grade. My 6yr old is in kindergarten there and prior to that he went to the pleasant prairie location for 2 years. They have made such a wonderful difference in my sons life. He is doing so well. Every staff member from both centers have been so amazing. Absolutely no complaints about either location. Please add them to you autism school list.

    My son goes to South Florida Autism Charter School and it’s a great school. It’s not on this list though.

    There is a new school in Mandeville, Louisiana that has only been open for a little over a year. It serves children with autism. It is absolutely amazing!!! It’s called Piece of Mind Academic Support Center. It is one of the best I’ve ever seen. If you live in Southern Louisiana or Mississippi and have a child with autism or any other special need- go check it out.
