S.T.A.R.S. Autism School

LAST UPDATED: November 08, 2018
Education & Youth Development
Our facilities feature design-specific rooms to facilitate learning to children under the spectrum. Our classrooms offer color and light sensitive surroundings, visual cues, sensory stations, technology, small class ratios, and minimal distractions while maintaining age-specific themes and decor for each grade level. Our campus provides a multi-sensory room within the School, offering stimulation in a calming environment. It aims to provide a “failure-free” experience, allowing pleasurable stimulation without the need for verbal abilities or requiring specific outcomes. The focus is to help the user of the room to gain maximum pleasure from the sensory activity. S.T.A.R.S. also offers multi-disciplinary (occupational, speech, and applied behavioral analysis) therapy rooms that are outfitted with discipline-specific equipment to provide for maximum effectiveness. Our playgrounds offer a safe, enclosed outdoor play area while addressing the various physical and mental challenges children with Autism encounter. We do this through the incorporation a sensory section that attracts the children and encourages exploration and discovery and that will provide a “just-right” experience for those seeking sensory stimulation. A music garden where children can play with outdoor musical instruments to experience their sensory aspects.
