Playground for Children with Autism

The Institute for the Redesign of Learning, a leader in special education in Southern California, since 1974, has established a unique Non-Public School (NPS) program for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Westmoreland Academy is based on the belief that extraordinary students deserve an extraordinary program from a specialized curriculum that can meet the individual needs of our students who learn in a multitude of ways; to well-trained, empathetic and passionate staff who support our students in recognizing that they are “Whole, Able and Complete” exactly as they are (Taking Charge™). The Institute’s goal is to provide our students with a nurturing and effective education using the most current, scientifically-proven and evidence based curriculum and interventions available.
