What We Do
At Daniels Academy we recognize the significant impact and challenges of raising a son who has mild Autism Spectrum Disorder or a related diagnostic presentation; we appreciate the strengths that working through and struggling through the challenges have created in the family system. Our goal is to utilize those strengths as we assist the young men at Daniels Academy in learning to become more effective, healthy, and functional in their everyday lives and in their families. Our boys’ boarding school provides ongoing, residential treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder in a safe, nurturing setting.
Through our four pillars, Executive Functioning skills, Life Skills, Emotion Regulation skills, and Social Learning, our young men can focus on the development of skills they need to develop. Our treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder allows students to reside in a home environment that:
- reduces stress
- assists in developing coping skills and social skills
- helps increase flexibility and reduce rigidness
- allows internalization and generalization of skills learned
