Rebecca School is a therapeutic day school for children ages 4 to 21, promoting the education and development of children with neurodevelopmental delays of relating and communicating, including autism spectrum disorders.


We utilize the Developmental Individual Differences Relationship-based (DIR®) model. The DIR® Methodology developed by Dr. Stanley Greenspan proceeds from the core belief that relationships are the foundation of learning. At Rebecca School, we consider the variations in individual motor and sensory processing systems and tailor each child’s program to his or her specific needs.
