Somerset Hills Learning Institute www.somerset-hills.org is a private, non-profit program that has been offering a broad spectrum of services to children, adolescents, and adults with autism for 17 years. The Institute exists to: provide science-based treatment and education to people with autism; prepare professionals as autism intervention resources; and, pioneer comprehensive intervention models through our research that may be used the world over for the benefit of people with autism.
What sets the Institute apart? A lifetime of support.
EARLY INTERVENTION & EDUCATION PROGRAMS - We have the ability to serve children with autism as young as 18 months. Using the principles and methods of applied behavior analysis as a basis for instruction, we individualize curriculum for each student.
HOME PROGRAM: We provide instruction and support in students’ homes and communities. By teaching parents to become the teachers their children need them to be, we are promoting the generalization of students’ skills to real-world settings and strengthening communication between parent and child.
MENTORING & RESEARCH: The Institute is educating Masters and Ph.D.-level professionals to broaden the reach of effective intervention for children and adults with autism. We continue to publish research that can be used to improve the effectiveness of autism intervention on a global scale.
CENTER FOR CAREER ADVANCEMENT: We are in the process of obtaining final state approval to help adults with autism lead fulfilling lives by achieving meaningful employment. We will provide job skills training to support clients’ career development and overall independence using science-based teaching techniques and systems
