The Forum School,107 Wyckoff Avenue New Jersey, Waldwick 07463
The Forum School is a private, non-profit, non-sectarian day program for developmentally atypical children through 21 years of age. The Forum School offers a therapeutic educational environment for children who cannot be accommodated in a public school setting. Psycho-educational and behavioral techniques are utilized along with a structured, developmentally stimulating curriculum appropriate to each student's level. Classes, which are ungraded, are small, with a ratio of at least one adult for every two children. Teachers, administrators, and consulting staff collaborate with the student's Child Study Team and parents to develop an Individualized Educational Program addressing his/her specific needs. The program admits children without regard to race, religion, nationality or handicap who exhibit the following characteristics: autism spectrum disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, developmental disabilities, schizophrenia, delayed and/or inappropriate speech and language, perceptual difficulties not related to specific sensory deficits, delayed motor development, inappropriate affect, and difficulties with social relatedness.
