About Garden Academy
Garden Academy was founded by parents in response to a shortage of high-quality educational services for children with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities.
We provide educational services based on applied behavior analysis to children with autism and other developmental disabilities. We provide training and professional development opportunities to bachelors-, masters-, and doctoral-level professional in behavior analysis and education. We conduct and disseminate clinically relevant research to improve services for individuals with autism and their families.
Did you know that many individuals with autism lose funding and services when they turn 21 years old? Over 1/3 of the students at Garden Academy will graduate in the next five years. There is a critical shortage of high-quality adult programs for individuals with autism in New Jersey. Garden Academy is looking beyond 21 and responding to this shortage by building an adult program.
