Located in Westbury, 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. Westbrook provides a supportive, therapeutic environment that allows each student to develop the daily living skills and emotional strength to successfully manage life’s complex demands.
Following a tour of the school, Assemblyman Montesano listened to the personal experiences of students and parents and learned how their lives have been positively impacted by coming to Westbrook.
