The campus, housing the school and clinic under one roof, will serve children and young adults with autism spectrum disorder and other complex challenges, is undergoing extensive renovations and is slated to open in Summer 2022 to families in Northern Neck, Virginia.
The 11,000 square foot campus will include purpose-built, student-centered spaces, including a sensory room, playground, and life skills apartment.

The new clinic opening will mark the seventh location in Virginia.
