The LearningSpring School for children on the autism spectrum in grades K-8 is committed to advance the social, developmental and academic growth of its students through pioneering educational and therapeutic strategies in order to prepare each child to participate in the wider community.
The LearningSpring Curriculum is multi-disciplinary, rich in content, and is constantly changing in order to be responsive to the student’s needs. It is structured to minimize distraction and to help increase the student’s flexibility.

- An academic curriculum that adheres to the New York State Education Department Learning Standards.
- Social-Cognitive-Behavioral Curriculum that is taught and practiced throughout the entire school day.
- Speech/Language Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
