The Timothy School is the oldest non-profit approved private school in Pennsylvania devoted exclusively to teaching students with autism.
For almost 60 years, we have worked to develop an understanding of autism that recognizes the strengths and uniqueness of our children and the specialized methods needed to expand their educational opportunities.
Our model program emphasizes Structured Teaching, Applied Behavior Analysis, Functional Communication and Positive Behavioral Supports as core components of our curriculum. In parallel, we are focused on creating a daily atmosphere for our students that encourages them to practice skills in natural environments. No one child is the same and The Timothy School’s culture thrives on our ability to refine and individualize instruction in unique, creative ways that motivate our students to increase their skills and independence.
“The Timothy School has provided my son with so much knowledge and training and has also provided me with very good tools in dealing with him during difficult situations. Everyone is so professional, talented, and knowledgeable and, most importantly, so nice that I have to rate The Timothy School as an outstanding school in Pennsylvania for autistic children.”
“We want to thank you for all that you did to help our grandchild while he was at The Timothy School. Your dedication, patience, and love for our special children was very obvious to all of us. It was comforting to know that they were in a place where they were taken care of as though they were family. Our grandchild learned so much and it made us all very happy.”
“How lucky my child is to have been loved so well! I can never say thank you enough for all that you have done. The Timothy School is filled with such great, talented, caring, and loving people. My child has learned so much from all of you.”
