A Dedicated School for Kids with Autism in Toledo, OH
Your youngster has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, and you want them to have the best education possible. We believe that opportunity is available to students, such as your child, at our school for kids with autism in Toledo, OH.
The school name is Green Options for Autism of Lucas County LLC (G.O.A.L. Academy). We cater to autistic students from ages 3 to 22. We start youngsters out with an emphasis on social interaction, which can be a struggle for youngsters with autism as they often prefer to play by themselves. We also focus on language skills and the basics of numbers, letters, colors, etc., as teachers do in any elementary classroom.
Teaching Our Students
Our teachers treat each of our students as individuals as autism is a spectrum disorder where children are vastly different from how they function with the outside world. There are some basics that we observe in our school for kids with autism that include:
- Ensuring the classroom is calm, clean, and decorated to avoid sensory overload
- Using concrete language that aligns with autistic student thinking
- Teaching and modeling social skills
- Keeping a consistent setting and routine from the classroom to recess to the daily schedule
