Parents, Families and School Administrators,
Welcome to Westbrook!
Westbrook Preparatory School is committed to assisting you as you learn about our therapeutic residential school. Westbrook Preparatory School is New York’s first approved residential secondary school for students with Asperger syndrome, high functioning Autism and related conditions who require intensive support in a 12-month boarding school setting.
Our school serves 24 adolescents between the ages of 12 and 21. We provide an appropriately challenging academic program offered in a therapeutic milieu. Westbrook’s therapeutic learning environment provides a safe and structured environment that encourages academic, social and emotional growth.
Students are most often formally referred to Westbrook by their school district and Committee on Special Education. A primary goal of our program is facilitating students’ interactions, self discovery and knowledge of their individual strengths and needs. All students receive individual, group and social skills therapies. In addition, students may receive speech and language therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy, as needed.
Families are an integral part of the treatment team at Westbrook. Students and families work closely with a primary clinician, which is assigned upon admission. Families are expected to attend family therapy sessions and parent training sessions at least two times each month, attend quarterly treatment planning meetings and maintain communication and collaborate with Westbrook’s treatment team.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
