About the School
The Joshua School is committed to helping each individual with autism spectrum disorder and developmental disabilities attain the highest quality of life–valuing each unique mind, body, and spirit.
Over 15 years ago, what began as the radical, heartfelt response of six teachers to serve students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and developmental disabilities, has grown into one of the top schools for autism in the United States.
The Joshua School is making a real difference in the lives of students with ASD and their families. Their programs serve children from age 2 to 21, through their integrated early intervention and preschool program at the Joshua Early Childhood Center, and their school-age and transition programs at their Englewood and Boulder campuses.
The Joshua School serves over 100 students. They are a non-profit, facility school, approved by the Colorado Department of Education and partner closely with over 10 local school districts to provide the intensive services many of their students need. By providing their students with structured environments, using creative teaching strategies based on behavioral intervention, and using data to inform their programming, their nationally recognized approach has achieved superior results. They are a community, working together with the goal of helping students grow and develop.
