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

A Website to Connect Employers and Individuals with Autism

As the speech-language pathologist for the Transition team at League School, I have had opportunity to work with families and discuss options for post-graduation plans for the past six years. Many families inquire about competitive employment opportunities, and after our students turn 22, these families are left with little assistance in finding these openings. Autism Speaks, in partnership with Rangam Consultants Inc. and WebTeam Corporation, has developed thespectrumcareers.com, a promising and groundbreaking website to facilitate the employment of individuals with autism. The website was designed and built by a Rangam employee who is diagnosed with autism. Job seekers (persons with autism) can search for potential jobs by job title, skills required, or location. The website also offers an opportunity for service providers to register and search for opportunities for their students or clients. Individuals can upload resumes and cover letters, and employers may post videos of the job descriptions in addition to written responsibilities. A video overview of the website as well as informative webinars are available on the home page to explain the mission of The Spectrum Careers.
