- A community that embraces neurodiversity and celebrates differences is a better place for all its members—autistic and neurotypical.
- All students, regardless of neurology, deserve the opportunity to nurture their potential.
- Social-emotional and relational development are essential to cognitive growth, and must be integrated with the academic process.
- Close collaboration of school, parents and community leads to a higher quality of education. Furthermore, it is the shared responsibility of these partners to help integrate our students into both the school community and the community at large.
- Individuals are more readily available to learn when they and their teachers identify, understand and work with their unique sensory, academic, and developmental profiles.
- “Behaviors” or “acting out” are often our students’ attempts to communicate what isn’t working for them, and it is our responsibility to decipher what they’re trying to say.
