Services for Children with Autism and I/DD
Unlocking the potential in each child
Every child deserves an education and support services that inspire their interests, unlock their potential and prepare them for the real world. It is our commitment to making this possible that drives the leadership and staff at Bancroft to provide robust outcome-centered programs, individualized to meet the distinct needs of each child.
Working with children from birth through age 21, Bancroft partners with school districts and state agencies to address the unique needs and supports required for each student including intervention, special education, integrated therapies, communication devices, residential programs and in-home supports.
Our goal – throughout all of our programs – is always to position the child for success in the next phase of their development – academically, socially and emotionally.
Our programs for children and youth are designed to bring each child greater levels of independence and help them improve their educational, social and vocational skills.
The Bancroft Early Intervention Program (EIP) provides early learning and therapeutic services to infants and toddlers, from birth to age 3, who show delays in reaching developmental milestones or who have a medical diagnosis that puts them at risk for delays.
Our Early Education Program for children ages 3 to 9, located in Cherry Hill, helps children develop new skills in a classroom setting while focusing on improving disruptive behaviors. By creating a solid foundation, our program prepares children to return to their school district or to enroll in our special education programs at The Bancroft School.
Students ages 5 – 21 learn and grow with their peers at The Bancroft School. Our programs are built for each student to achieve academic, behavioral, social, communication and adaptive skills to maximize their potential for independence, productivity and personal fulfillment.
The Lindens Center for Autism serves children from ages 5 to 21 through three distinct residential options, on campus and in the community, to serve and support the unique developmental and behavioral needs of your child.
Transition is one of the most critical times for students and families in the special needs community. Bancroft focuses on life skills and vocational training with the goal of decreasing support and increasing independence. Our team specializes in guiding families through the Transition planning process to ensure access to services and supports after graduation at age 21.
Many children with autism or other intellectual and developmental disabilities need additional support outside of school. Our intensive in-home services are delivered by certified practitioners in the comfort of the family’s home, where we can improve behaviors and increase independence.
Educational consultation services are available to school districts throughout New Jersey including evaluations and assessments, staffing solutions, professional development, training and more.
Our team of special education teachers, direct support professionals and clinical staff of behavior analysts and therapists are dedicated to creating a plan that is just right for your student.
