The League School of Greater Boston is a leading private day and residential school for students ages 3 to 22 diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.

Our year-round, private educational program offers a full range of social, academic, behavioral and community-life-skills curricula to meet the individual strengths and needs of a diverse population.

The SCERTS model provides a consistent focus on the key challenges facing people with autism, proven support techniques for educators and families, a common language, and a research-based assessment.

The League School’s residential program is open in Norwood and Walpole 365 days a year and is licensed for up to 20 residents.

Our clinical services focus on helping students regulate their emotions through identifying their feelings and helping to appropriately express themselves.

At League School, we believe that if students are given the right set of challenges and supportive strategies, they will grow and achieve success.

“Loose Change Can Change Lives” Fundraising Initiative Created Awareness of School at a Variety of Locations

This past March, League School of Greater Boston held a month-long fundraiser – called“Loose Change Can Change Lives.” The program involved placing loose change containers at the school as well as at a number of different businesses and allowing friends of the school to contribute the loose change that they had accumulated to the school. Containers were collected and brought back to the school where the proceeds were totaled up. The initiative ended up raising $388.16 (of course there would be pennies) for the school. It truly was a “funraiser” and we want to thank the following businesses for being kind enough to allow us to place a collection container at their locations: Palumbo Liquors of Walpole Sullivan Benefits (both its Worcester and Needham offices) Boston Millennia Partners The Neponset Valley Chamber of Commerce Greg Czarnowski Marketing & Advertising We plan on holding this event again next year, so start saving your loose change now and be ready to contribute the next time you see our “Loose Change Can Changes Lives” containers.... read more

“Expected” and “Unexpected” Behaviors

What’s new in 139, you ask?

We are learning the first step which is when we enter a room, what should we do or think about. This is when we read the environment: “what’s going on?”, “who’s here?”, and “what should I do next?”. This is tricky to learn because each environment, everyone is expected to do something different. Kayla has helped us learn the difference between each environment using pictures and our classroom IPADs. She is also teaching us about “thinking bubbles” and “talking bubbles”. This is when someone else is thinking about or talking about something and then we change our thinking or conversation to match theirs. We use lots of visuals to help us read the social situation and figure out what we should think about. We are looking forward to learning more about reading different social situations! We are hopeful that this will also help us when we are at home with family and in the community with unfamiliar... read more
