Specialized Learning for the Whole Child (PDF)

Linden Grove School provides specialized learning for K-8 students with autism and related learning needs.

Our progressive education program integrates academics, social-emotional learning, and specialized therapies to help each child maximize his or her potential.

We partner with families and community members to ensure each student feels safe, engaged, supported and challenged, to promote long-term success.



Academic instruction is customized and incorporates Ohio Department of Education Learning Standards. Small class sizes and low teacher:student ratios ranging from 1:3 to 1:7 enable teachers to provide individualized attention and encourage active participation.

Research-based education programs proven to increase student achievement in academic areas, especially among students with diverse learning needs, are utilized at all grade levels. LEGO® education programs, robotics classes, and other specialty courses inspire creativity and critical thinking. An applied skills program for grades 6 through 8 prepares students to live independent, fulfilling lives through life skills activities such as cooking, service learning projects, career exploration activities, and more.


Social-Emotional Learning

The development of social and emotional skills is critical for success in school and in life.

Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts and other specialists work in collaboration with the entire staff to help students develop the skills to manage their emotions, communicate effectively and learn and play cooperatively. In addition, an individualized sensory plan is created for each student, to help him or her maximize their learning potential.


Specialized Therapies

Occupational therapy, speech therapy, art, music and physical education sessions and classes are educational as well as therapeutic, helping to reduce anxiety, promote healthy self-expression, and improve coordination and fine motor skills. Play therapy is also available during the school day through an insurance plan or private pay.


After School & Summer Programs

After-school programs, extra-curricular activities and summer camp are available for enrolled students. Offerings include cooking classes, LEGO® Club, Taekwondo and more.
