The Westview School is a private, non-profit school for children with autism spectrum disorders. The school was founded in 1981 to provide a structured, nurturing, and stimulating learning environment for children with learning differences which prevent them from being successful in regular programs.
Today, the school’s student body is comprised of children ages two through fifteen, who have been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD) or related Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
The program is unique in its ability to meet the needs of high-functioning children with autism spectrum disorders, not only offering a full academic program but also addressing the social and language challenges which make mainstreaming into regular classes so difficult. Enhancing self-confidence and building appropriate behaviors are an integral part of the program.
Our Founder, Jane Stewart, passed away in 2010. The dedicated staff, teachers, and therapists of The Westview School proudly carry on her vision. It will continue to be a place of hope, growth and learning for children with autism spectrum disorders.
