Summer Programming and Planning at APL

September is approaching so that means APL is hiring for the new school year! Check out our open positions. We are having a great summer as we have welcomed students for our first-ever Extended School Year in July and August, under the measures required by the COVID-19 pandemic. We have also started laying out a working plan for reopening in the fall - while at the same time, taking into account the changing circumstances, health guidelines and concerns of our families.  Please check back as we solidify this planning. We hope you'll also take a look at resources & articles about the 30th Anniversary of the ADA and our statement on supporting our diverse community during this troubled time, when racism and marginalization are on display throughout the country.

Why Parents Love Us

To see our child happy, and with people that care about her, is worth more than anything and we have found that at APL.

- APL Parent

APL turned my child’s life around: academically, socially, and emotionally. And my life as well: I no longer dread the phone ringing. I know that my kids are in good hands, and that if ever any sort of problem does come up, I’ll be able to work with the school to make things better. What I say matters.

- APL Parent

APL provides us peace of mind for our family in a safe and supporting environment.

- APL Parent

When we started looking for the right school for our child to attend, we toured everywhere and came up dry. We found ourselves wishing there was a school where ABA therapy and academics were wholly combined in the same classroom. THEN we found APL and it felt like it had been created just for us. Dream come true!

- APL Parent

APL has helped our son regain his self-confidence and improve his self-esteem!

- APL Parent

The APL way is to care about your child in the best way possible while laying out a road map for progress developmentally and emotionally.

- APL Parent

The intrinsic blend of ABA with schooling that has taken my child from not sitting at a school desk, balled up in the corner in a novel, in public school to completing her work and even enjoying many of her academic classes. The value put on the unique traits of individuals and the enormous patience of the staff come in at the top as well.
