Autism Services and Resources
The Gateway School’s day school program provides exemplary educational services year-round to students between 5-21 years of age, regardless of where the student falls on the autism spectrum.
With certified teachers, licensed specialists, well-trained paraprofessionals, a low teacher-to-student ratio, and small, state-of-the-art classroom settings, Gateway’s educational program for children on the Autism Spectrum is tailored to meet the specific individual needs of each of our students.
While The Gateway School educates students with multiple disabilities, we specifically focus on servicing students with a primary diagnosis of autism and multiple secondary diagnoses.
“We love that the day school provides opportunities for our daughter to be out in the community engaging in cultural activities on a regular basis, as well as everyday activities that she would otherwise not be able to experience because of her autism. We are so grateful for the experienced and caring staff that work so hard to make this school such a blessing to so many who struggle with autism every day.”

Facts about Autism Spectrum Disorders
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the fastest growing developmental disability in the nation, affecting approximately one in 68 children. Although there is currently no cure for autism spectrum disorder (ASD), early intervention has been shown to improve a child’s development.
The CDC and early childhood professionals agree the earlier children receive appropriate assessment and intervention, the more that can be done to help them reach their full potential.
