About Us

Social Butterfly School offers different programs that aspire to teach communication, social-emotional and functional living skills to children with autism and other developmental and intellectual disabilities. We teach these skills by following a life-skills curriculum and by creating lessons and activities that will support school/home instruction.

We are a team of educators who are certified and licensed to teach students with special needs. Our classrooms will be set up to meet the individual needs of every student who has been enrolled.

The curriculum will be taught through a centers-based approach in which children will alternate through. There will be an academic center in which skills are introduced. Once skills are introduced the next three centers will provide contrived opportunities to practice the skills taught.

We will have a sensory center, play center and peer interaction center.  Each center blends communication, social interaction and independence to help students become proficient in the new skill.
