Any private school you consider should understand the main traits, symptoms, and causes of autism. Most importantly, though, they should have a strong autism program, one that meets your child’s most crucial needs.

Boarding schools supporting autism

Many schools in Canada support children with autism or ASD. This includes schools in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Edmonton, Calgary, and Mississauga.

Boarding school is often a nice option for children with autism. It often provides the right environment to support their educational, social, and emotional needs, administered by teachers with focused training in special education.

Some boarding schools are completely dedicated to educating and supporting kids with autism and those who are on the autism spectrum. These schools exclusively focus on autism and only accept children with this condition.

Other boarding schools support autism, but also support with students with other special needs. For instance, some boarding schools that support children with autism support other developmental disabilities, such as Asperger’s syndrome, intellectual disabilities, Down syndrome, and Williams syndrome. They may also support kids with learning disabilities as well.
