We gladly accept students on the autism spectrum, Jon Peterson, and Ed Choice Scholarships. We can help you with processing IEP transfers, school transfers, and tuition payment plans. All students on an I.E.P. must meet with the class head teacher and class interventionist for an interview as an initial step to enrollment. This consultation will insure that NM will be able to confidently service all the requirements before acceptance.
Nightingale Montessori offers individualized pace programs which make it ideal for students with autism who may require self-pace for various subjects. This is the basis for our extensive and successful Autism Provider service. However, there are some spectrum disorders that we are not able to service. We regret that NM does not aide with ABA or rewards therapy, in toilet training, tolerate repeated biting or other spontaneous violent attacks, nor habitual student refusal of adult given directions. If any of the above behavioral needs become evident, parental intervention and probable withdrawal will ensue.
