League School offers an array of programs to meet the needs of students with Autism
Employing the SCERTS Model as an overarching framework, each of the League School’s four day school programs is designed to teach social, academic, behavioral, and community-life skills based on a student’s age and ability. These programs range from functional academics to grade-level curricula as well as vocational training and daily living skills to meet the individual strengths and needs of League’s widely diverse student population.
The programs are:
- Foundations serves early childhood and elementary-aged students 3 to 13 with a curriculum focusing on functional academic, social communication, emotional regulation, behavior, leisure, and daily living skills. Click here to learn more.

Following the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework and taking standard developmental milestones into consideration, our teams of educators and specialists work together to provide a myriad of perspectives, disciplines, and approaches to develop each student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) and corresponding curricula.
Clinical services, occupational therapy, speech/language therapy, and behavioral services are typically delivered through a “push-in model” with specialists providing necessary supports in the classroom setting. Individualized treatment models may also be accessed depending on the unique needs of the student. Physical therapy is available for an additional fee.
