Private boarding schools for autism

Find the top boarding schools in Canada supporting children with autism

Do you have a child with autism or what’s sometimes called Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)? If so, you’ll need to find a school with the right educational environment.

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 some learning disabilities as well.

Benefits of autism boarding schools

Whether you’re looking at a boarding school dedicated to autism or one which supports other special needs as well, these schools can be highly effective. They offer a kind of therapeutic environment that’s just what many kids need.

This often includes:

  • Smaller classes and lower student-to-teacher ratios
  • Plenty of one-on-one support
  • Individualized programming
  • Tailored instruction
  • A structured educational environment
  • Support services, such as academic counselling, tutoring, psychotherapy, homework help, and accommodation and disability services
  • Autism-specific support, such as speech-language pathology, social skills training, and sensory integration programs

Many of these same features can be found in day schools that are dedicated to supporting special needs students, such as those with autism. But often boarding schools are able to provide an intensive therapeutic environment that’s difficult to find in day programs.

Your child will be supported round-the-clock with a wide array of specialized programs that target her unique learning and social needs. She’ll also have the opportunity to become more independent, mature, and responsible, with new support systems that depend less on her family.
