Added: Bay Area Achievement School in San Mateo, California

A new school for students with autism is opening in the San Francisco Bay Area this fall (2011). The school is located on Peninsula Avenue in San Matea and it has been added to my California Autism Schools page.

Our Non-Public School will provide students with the most appropriate environment and highest quality of individualized education in which they may learn and generalize their skills. Through emphasis on the student’s strengths and talents, we encourage self-expression, self-efficacy and independence. The Bay Area Achievement School supports our students’ ability to work cooperatively and collaboratively with their peers to develop greater social skills.

Bay Area Achievement School serves children Kindergarten through 6th grade (ages 5-14) on the Autism Spectrum, as well as children whose behavior and/or disabilities impede learning in a traditional school environment. The Bay Area Achievement School works closely with the child’s home district to provide intensive educational and behavioral interventions that will help students access the skills required to return to a less restrictive environment.

At Bay Area Achievement School, we recognize the importance of adaptation of curricular materials in order to meet the individual needs of our students as well as developing teaching methodologies that work with the strengths of our students. Our students will thrive in a highly individualized teaching environment, with a 2:5 ratio, with a fully credentialed moderate-severe teacher and highly-trained paraprofessionals.
