Options for Autism
How would a tuiton-free public school that works with child that have been diagnosed with Autism and other related disorders sound? Great, right? This does exist in Arizona as stated on their website :
Arizona Autism Charter School (AZACS) is the first tuiton-free, public charter school in Arizona focused on the educational needs of children with autism. AZACS was unanimously approved by the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools and is currently open serving grades K-5 in Metro Phoenix. The mission of the Arizona Autism Charter School is to educate students with autism and related disorders using evidence-based strategies grounded in the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) delivered by highly trained teachers and staff. Our goal is to make this high quality, specialized education accessible to students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in the Phoenix Metropolitan area.
Our driving force is to empower students with ASD to reach their full potential in motivating and engaging environments using individualized programs, so that each child gains the skills to integrate into the community and become a fulfilled, productive citizen.
