At The North Star Academy, our mission is to make a meaningful difference by assisting individuals and the families who support them.  We are committed to individuals reaching fulfilled and independent lives through the acquisition and retention of skills in an enriched environment



North Star Academy provides early behavioral intervention for children ages  2½ to 12 years with intellectual or developmental disabilities, including children with autism spectrum disorder. Each child served at North Star Academy experiences an individualized and comprehensive program designed to assess and treat challenging behavior while increasing functional skills.  

 North Star Academy utilizes the principles and evidence-based practices of applied behavior analysis. NSA provides on-site assessment of skills and functional analysis of challenging behaviors. Each child has an individualized program based on assessment results and 1:1 instructional ratio.

As appropriate, instruction in the following areas is provided and tailored for each individual: language, communication, social skills, leisure skills, daily living skills, vocational skills, health and safety skills, and academic domains.  

There are opportunities for community-based instruction, including trips to CLO's Midnight Farm.

The Autism Curriculum Encyclopedia, a nationally-recognized and specialized online curriculum, is used to assist in the development, monitoring, and summarization of each student’s customized behavior reduction and skill acquisition goals.  

North Star Academy utilizes smart technologies, developed by iLink Support Technologies, to monitor and support its students. To learn more, click here.
