Welcome

Advancing Life Learners is a place where autistic voices are heard and abilities are celebrated. We are an autistic learning center that understands greater needs that include grade level academics. A.L.L. is designed to meet the needs of individuals who have been neglected in traditional school settings. We kindly welcome school aged non speaking autistics, who have been surviving vs. thriving due to:

  • behaviors (we call this body dysregulation)

  • significant sensory needs 

  • being misunderstood 

  • lacking professional support for dynamic learning

  • supposed academic deficits

  • not meeting academic potentials

  • inadequate communication skill building (Soma®RPM, letter board spelling, typing, AAC) 

  • social appropriateness mentoring NOT compliance

 

A.L.L. provides opportunities for daily life learning in a setting unlike any other. Every individual is given daily opportunities to learn through hands on activities that motivate learning. A.L.L. teachers hold college degrees or are ESA credentialed with increased knowledge of how to encourage and support dynamic learners.  

We keep our numbers few in order to provide quality opportunities without increasing stress on clients or staff. Above all else, we presume competence in every client ensuring that all who spend time with us will THRIVE! 

Our Offerings

Advanced training and focus on how individuals demonstrate and communicate understanding by providing respectful, age appropriate, and multi-sensory learning opportunities.

Our Mission

We believe that every non to minimally speaking autistic is full of intelligence and never ending potential. We believe that when we presume competence, individuals discover greater abilities. We believe that each of our students deserves respect, to be taught, and engage in age appropriate activities that support overall needs and well being.
