Company description

Rebecca School is a therapeutic day school promoting the education and development of children ages 4 to 21 with neurodevelopment disorders of relating and communicating, including autism spectrum disorders and PDD. Rebecca School incorporates the ideology of Stanley Greenspan, MD with respect to the Developmental Individual Differences Relationship-based (DIR) and Floortime approaches. Up until his death in April 2010, Dr. Greenspan was a consultant, clinical trainer and advisory board member. The DIR Methodology developed by Dr. Stanley Greenspan proceeds from the core belief that relationships are the foundation of learning. At Rebecca School, we consider the variations in individual motor and sensory processing systems and tailor each child's program to his or her specific needs. There is no 'one-size-fits-all' for children with neurodevelopmental delays in relating and communicating. Each child has unique strengths to be developed and limitations to be remediated. Our goal is not to fit the child to the program but to fit the program to the child. At Rebecca School , our belief is that building meaningful, respectful relationships is the foundation for learning. Using a developmental and interdisciplinary approach, Rebecca School creates a program that meets students' unique needs, celebrates their strengths and embraces their passions. Our goal is to move a student up the developmental ladder to become thinking, relating, and communicating members of his/her community.

My son recently completed his first year at Rebecca School and all I can say is that the school has had a huge influence in his development and deserves all credit for the improvements that he has show over the last one year. I would definitely recommend the school for autistic children.

After long months of wait and endless searches, we found hope and support in Rebecca School, for our son. It is really a wonderful school, with great attention to educational quality and all-round growth. My son has found a second home in Rebecca School and we are very satisfied with it.

It's been a while that my daughter's autism has been detrimental to her interaction with her friends and acquaintances. The teaching curriculum at Rebecca school and the teachers in general have been a great influence on her and I am glad that we decided on this school for her when we did.

It took a lot of research but Rebecca was one of those schools which promised everything I was looking for to help my daughter's academic and social growth. I am pleased to highlight that the school has lived up to their promise and my daughter has shown rapid improvement in just a few months at the school.

My son has drastically improved over the course of the previous year and much of the credit goes to his teachers at Rebecca School. Their efforts have been very significant and I'm glad to have enrolled my son here.

I enrolled my son in Rebecca School following his diagnosis of autism. And since then, he has only gotten better in his interactions with fellow peers and the teachers at the school. I'm very thankful to all the people over at Rebecca.
