The Westview School is a special program for children with autism spectrum disorders. The program is open to children age two through fifteen. The Westview School does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, or religion.
Parents are invited to visit the school and observe in the classroom so they will be able to make an informed decision about whether the available opening is suitable for their child. An initial screening is then conducted to determine each child's eligibility for admission to the program. This includes:
1. Parent interview.
2. Review of detailed application information.
3. Review of relevant records, including all previous testing and evaluations.
4. Informal evaluation of the child through observation in one of our classrooms.
5. Placement meeting of Westview School staff to make a decision regarding The Westview School's ability to meet the needs of the student.
No formal evaluation is completed by The Westview School prior to admission; however, parents are encouraged to have a full evaluation completed by a developmental pediatrician or developmental center.
Every child who is admitted must have a completed medical examination. Most children come to us with detailed pediatric evaluations as well as vision and hearing assessments and other related tests.
Applicants to elementary and middle school must provide previous testing/evaluations and school reports. Once admitted into the program, The Brigance Inventory of Development is administered to use as a curriculum guide and a baseline against which future development is measured.

The Westview School's goal is that no child should be turned away due to financial limitations. Financial assistance is available for families who wish to attend Westview. The Board of Directors considers each application on an individual basis. Assistance is awarded based on the availability of funds and the family's financial need.
Westview accepts students for admission without regard to their financial status. Decisions regarding admission and financial assistance are made separately.
Any family who has been accepted for enrollment and wishes to apply for financial assistance at Westview should fill out an application made available through FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition). Please do not fill out the application until the student has been accepted. To access the application on FAST's secure website, please follow the link below.
Book Fairs - The parent organization holds a book fair in the fall and in the spring where students and teachers have the opportunity to stock up on their favorite books.
Language Difficulty - Most children with autism spectrum disorders have some form of difficulty with language. At Westview, both receptive and expressive language difficulties are addressed
Thank you for your financial support. Your gift will make a difference in our children’s lives.
