Westbrook Preparatory School is the first residential New York State Regents junior/senior high school for students with Asperger syndrome, high functioning autism and related conditions. We provide direct intervention and long term planning to help our students adapt, communicate and learn. The focus of our program is to create a supportive, therapeutic environment that will allow each student to develop the daily living skills and emotional strength to successfully manage life’s complex demands now and into adulthood.
