Alexander Leigh Center for Autism is a Therapeutic Day school that teaches our students the necessary skills to achieve functional independence. We provide an environment where children on the autism spectrum can develop to their full potential academically, emotionally, socially, communicatively, and physically.
Our vision is to create strong community relationships and partnerships that help to secure opportunities for our students to showcase their abilities.
Our mission is dedicated to helping children with autism and those that love them to thrive!
