Responsibly Addressing Autism Via Education (R.A.A.V.E.)
Our R.A.A.V.E. classrooms provide an active educational program for children with Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, other Pervasive Developmental Disability (including PDD-NOS), and significant deficits in communication, social skills and behavioral development.  An appropriate setting is chosen based on the specific needs of each student.  Settings include home-based and Center-based programs.  Our program fits the student, not the reverse.  Our focus is on the student’s strengths.
Our R.A.A.V.E. Program is offered through both our CloverPatch and Langan School Programs

After School Programs for Preschool & School-Aged Students
We offer recreational activities, such as arts & crafts, swimming, and outdoor adventures, while meeting the schedule needs of their working families and caregivers.

Mobility Opportunities Via Education (M.O.V.E.)
In May of 2009, we were honored to be officially designated as a model site by MOVE International--joining a distinguished group of only 27 other model sites in the world!

Our M.O.V.E. Program is offered through both our CloverPatch and Langan School Programs.

In our M.O.V.E. classroom, students with impaired motor skills are encouraged to explore and discover new ways of movement and "getting around" their environment through motivation from trained professionals and use of specialized, adaptive equipment. Our goal is to help children with disabilities to acquire increased independence in sitting, standing, and transitioning, and to experience better health and enhanced personal dignity. The M.O.V.E. experience is also available to adult consumers through our Adult Services, increasing their independence and self-esteem in employment and day habilitation environments.
