Residential Program for Children with Autism and I/DD
When the behavior of a child or adolescent with autism or a developmental disability prevents participation in normal family life, school and community recreational and socialization opportunities, families struggle to find help. For these families, Bancroft is the answer.
One of the most innovative behavioral therapy and residential programs of its kind in the nation, The Lindens Center for Autism draws upon our leading expertise, best practices incorporating Applied Behavior Analysis, a home-like setting and a team approach to helping children enjoy significant quality of life improvements and brighter futures.
Lindens Neurobehavioral Program
An intensive stabilization program for children and adolescents facing severe behaviors that have interrupted family life, education, community recreation and socialization, The Lindens program utilizes evidenced-based practices to reduce the frequency, duration and intensity of problem behaviors, including self-injurious behavior, aggression, and property destruction.
Campus Residences, located on The Bancroft School Campus, are for students in need of a therapeutic residential services environment to assist in daily living skills and socialization integration. Through the residential program, Bancroft partners with families, education, vocational and community resources to prepare adolescents to thrive in more independent environments.
Community residences enable students to live more independently in the supported homes based in neighborhoods throughout the community while attending The Bancroft School. Many children and youth who reside in this program have progressed from Bancroft’s Campus program, although that is not required for admission.
