The Deaf Autism Program is a unique, residential program for austic children who are physically or functionally deaf, ages 8 - 22.

Their expertise in alternative communication methods, 2-1 staff to child ratio, and a brand new facility specifically created to soothe and support austic children ensure a safe, supportive environment, conducive to learning.
