    I can't even begin to explain how much Nashoba Learning Group has helped my daughter and my family. The teachers/therapists are well trained loving creative and such hard workers. They get the best out of her each and every day and the do it with love and enthusiasm. This is in my opinion the best school in the country for children with autism. There is also a great parent community for support if parents desire this. Every part of the school is run with great professionalism and care with the highest standards of education for our children. I am so grateful to have my child at Nashoba Learning Group because I know that it is her very best chance at being the best that she can be.

    Great school where kids feel the love of their teachers while learning daily living and academic skills in a warm interesting and supportive community. As a parent I feel the staff listen to me and value my thoughts. I'm thankful that my son is in very good hands and around people that really care about him.

    Nashoba Learning Group's greatest feature is its philosophy that the student comes first. The instruction the curriculum and the supports are all completely customized for each learner and they are constantly changed tweaked and updated as the learner changes. The teachers are all caring and deeply invested and they work hard to ensure each student is making the most progress possible while feeling happy and motivated. I think Nashoba also excels at thinking outside the box when it comes to using Applied Behavior Analysis in creative ways to teach and change behavior. Also as an organization Nashoba promotes parent involvement and input and tries hard to incorporate families' priorities when creating educational goals. Finally as an employer Nashoba is supportive and encouraging to its staff.

    Nashoba Learning group is a fantastic private school in Bedford MA that services students with autism. I have been an employee at NLG for 10 years and I couldn't imagine working anywhere else. The staff and administration are fabulous and the students are amazing! The teachers put in so much time work detail and love into everything they do and it is evident by the amount of progress each student makes on a daily basis. The students actually enjoy coming to school and their teachers become their best friend(s). I highly recommend this school to any parent with an autistic child.

    Nashoba Learning Group is an extraordinary school for individuals on the autism spectrum. The clinical expertise combined with the great care and affection they have for their students makes it one of the best in the state. The environment is like a typical school environment and the collaboration between staff and family is unparalleled. I wish every child on the spectrum could attend NLG. I am certainly so so grateful that mine do!

    I would recommend NECC first but parents like NLG. NECC has a good variety of children plus integrated kindegarten. More opportunities for peer modeling.

    NLG employs top of the line teachers and provides intense ABA therapy. Overall there is NOT a better school out there.

    The best school for children with severe Autism. Data driven creative loving and individualized environment.

    Doesn't focus on recovery at all. For that parents would need to find a private provider who would provide extensive executive function and theory of mind programs. If you are looking for basic fulfillment of Mass. curriculum and vocational training than this center is fine.

    NLG provides 1-on-1 ABA therapy for students with autism. Completely individualized program for each student. Social and communication skills are emphasized and vocational training included in the school day.

    Would not recommend for higher functioning children since much of their population consists of low functioning children. No real intensive social skills going on here.

    It's a wellness center. Watered down therapy but makes parents feel good.
