Spectrum360’s Walk for a Lifetime brings together families, friends, staff, alumni, and community sponsors to show their support to the students and adults who attend Spectrum360. This event is one of our biggest yearly fundraisers for the organization.

Spectrum360’s mission is to provide the highest quality educational and therapeutic programs for individuals with learning, language, and social/emotional challenges to achieve their maximum potential as responsible adults in society; recognize and value the individuals’ unique abilities, learning styles, and differences; and serve as a leader in promoting innovative educational programs.

A Walk for a Lifetime is our largest fundraiser that helps sustain our programs and services throughout the year.

Mission Statement

Spectrum360’s mission is to provide the highest quality educational and therapeutic programs for individuals with learning, language and social/emotional challenges to achieve their maximum potential as responsible adults in society; recognize and value the individuals’ unique abilities, learning styles and differences; and serve as a leader in promoting innovative educational programs.

Description

Spectrum360 challenges expectations for children, adolescents, and adults across the full spectrum of autism and with behavioral and related disabilities through innovative special education, employment supports, and community-building.

We do not define individuals by their disabilities. Using evidence-based approaches, we push the boundaries of traditional programs and services, helping each person we serve to discover unique talents, develop self-worth, and maximize opportunities for independence, self-direction, citizenship, and community integration.

We provide educational and therapeutic services for students ages 3-21 in our two NJ Board of Education approved schools, Academy360 Lower School and Academy360 Upper School, NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities and Department of Vocational Rehabilitation Services approved habilitation and vocational services in our adult center, Independence360, and education and skill building in our two speciality programs, FilmAcademy360 and CulinaryAcademy360 which are open to the community.
