NLG Home


Nashoba Learning Group’s mission is to enable children and adults with autism to function with the greatest possible productivity and independence in the community, home, and workplace throughout their lives.

NLG was founded in 2002 to offer a different life trajectory for more seriously impaired individuals with Autism.  Today NLG's School provides outstanding, individualized education, training and intervention services for students aged 3 to 22 with Autism Spectrum disorders.  NLG's rapidly growing Adult Program opened in 2013, providing ongoing support to adults with Autism. 

 
Nashoba Learning Group's success for those we serve is driven by three critical components.  
  • Our use of research based Applied Behavior Analysis teaching methodology,
  • Our customization of teaching procedures and curriculum for each person,
  • An organizational model designed to optimize the training, development and retention of high-performing, caring and compassionate staff. Our staff retention rate is 85%.

   We are very proud of our staff and the outstanding work they do to enable those we serve to achieve.  We are also proud of the teaching innovations we have developed and which we are now able to share with others for the benefit of those with Autism through our Video Portal.
