Arbor Bay School Celebrates its 10th Year and Autism Awareness Month.

When students with autism are engaged socially, the trajectory of their development improves. Likewise, these students often model an ability to focus academically for students facing learning challenges.

With Arbor Bay School celebrating its 10th Year and April being Autism Awareness Month, it is an opportune time to reflect on the attributes of the school’s model for                                     students with autism. Arbor Bay School demonstrates that students thrive in a blended environment where students both with and without autism can learn from each others’ strengths.

“We are touched by growth that all of our students experience as a result of a blended model of students,” said Susan Rose, Director of Arbor Bay School. “Children model their peers’ behavior, which is why we so strongly believe in a blended environment for all students and work hard to maintain balanced classrooms.”

Arbor Bay School Founder Pamela Joy adds, “When students with autism are engaged socially, the trajectory of their development improves. Likewise, these students often model an ability to focus academically for students facing learning challenges.”
