Since our founding in 2002 by a group of innovative parents and professionals, Vista Autism Services has been a pioneer in the integration of special education and behavioral therapy to help school-aged individuals with autism reach their unique potential. Available in public and private schools, and from more intensive to less intensive settings, Vista offers a range of services to provide students and school personnel in the Central Pennsylvania region with experienced autism support.
Every parent wants their child to have the best opportunity to learn, grow, and reach their unique potential. That determination is what led a group of innovative parents and professionals to establish The Vista School, the first school in Central Pennsylvania to exclusively meet the educational and therapeutic needs of children with autism spectrum disorder.
Available to students approaching graduation from The Vista School, this program prepares young adults with autism for post-secondary education and training, employment, and independent living.
Vista’s Outreach Services program provides expert behavioral support to public and private schools across Central PA to help guide them through the complex needs of students with autism. We work with both students and educators using a data-driven approach to design the best possible programs fostering growth and progress.
Contracted services provided by Vista to fully staff and run autism support classrooms. Our current Contracted Vista Education (CoVE) program serves a consortium comprised of six school districts.
Specialized behavioral therapy for individuals ages 12 months to 21 years with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. Services, guided by board-certified behavior professionals, take place in home, school, and community settings.
