Our campus is one of our most powerful tools in helping children learn, grow, and heal. Preserving and improving it through our RiseUP campaign will raise our capacity for service and innovation to greater heights.
With your support, the Villa will continue evolving to meet the community’s emerging, most critical needs today and in future generations. Stand with us and be part of a brighter future for all.
By redeveloping our 24,000 sq. ft. Dooley School building as the Villa’s new Center for Autism, we will create an environment that combines education, therapy, research, training, and community partnership. The new Center will be the hub for our pioneering model of autism education, designed to achieve the behavioral and communication outcomes of an elite clinic, while reaching the academic goals of a top school, and maximizing independence for 100 students and their families. In partnership with our public schools, we also hope to meet the growing need for training in autism-specific teaching techniques so that our model can be implemented using their existing infrastructure and resources.
