My son with autism has made tremendous progress at Laradon. His teachers and staff have worked with him in all areas-speech, OT, behavior as well as academics. The staff is knowledgeable and thoughtful. They always make time to reach out to me proactively, take time to listen to me, and coordinate with other service providers so that we are all collaborating. They are a dedicated, wonderful team of people who work very hard to make sure my son is meeting his full potential and being as independent as possible. I could go on and on about the staff-but in a nutshell, I consider them an integral part of my son's life and he would not have many of the skills he does today without their unwavering commitment to him. My son has a limited (but growing!) verbal ability so I must rely on communication with his teachers to know about his day and they do a great job telling me everything that his day entailed. I value that time investment very much. My son is always happy to go to Laradon, and comes home feeling happy as well. His non verbal communication tells me he feels safe and loved, as well as challenged, which we all need. The campus is beautiful and we really appreciate that the school has specials classes. Not all facilities are able to offer these. Laradon has brought my son many opportunities such as participating in Boy Scouts and Special Olympics. As a mom, and a person who considers herself an advocate for people with autism I truly do respect and recommend Laradon. And thank them for all they have done and do for my boy.

My daughter as attend Laradon since 2008. It was an awesome program. But this last year it's been going down hill .staff doesn't seem to be on the same page. There's no signs of emotion, caring and not very Consider it to the participants. I stopped recommending Laradon Hall. Very disappointed mother

Dangerous place to work. Children give staff concussions, kick them in the eyes, threw heavy stack of robots at someone and made her neck bleed forcing her to the hospital, almost killed someone by choking her and ruining a vessel in her neck. Staff are not properly trained... No cameras or accident reports. Told to call 'assist' for help but director said she would not be helping if called because she didn't want to ruin her clothes. Always in 'crisis' mode where there is only yelling, crying, and violence in all the rooms and hallways. This is literally a normal day and when a clinical psychologist offered suggestions, supervisors said there's no money for providing the kids with a calmer environment. The kids don't learn anything, and staff is underpaid basically working in a mental hospital/prison where Management is just collecting money from parents. . Do not apply here and do not send your kids here.

This place is like an obstacle course. I have to avoid every single obstacle I have ever encountered.
