A 501c3 dedicated to enhancing the lives of children and families affected by autism and related disabilities through day school, after school and outreach services.
Matthew's Center is a non-profit, education based organization focusing on communication & social skill instruction.
We contract with many jurisdictions and parents to provide 1:1 data-driven instruction in the home and community. The primary focus is placed on the development and improvement of functional communication skills, daily living skills, play/social skills, and implementing an effective behavior intervention plan based on positive behavioral supports. Skills are taught using ABA techniques in a natural environment.
Matthew’s Center realizes that a child’s learning environment is not limited to school. We believe that autism affects the entire family and have geared our programs to creating the least restrictive environment for the child while providing maximum support to the family.
What makes Matthew’s Center different is that we offer full wrap around services to the students and family, meaning we teach in all environments - home, school, and community.
