Find the Option That Fits Your Needs
We offer a range of services for individuals with autism and related challenges. Take a look and see how we might help.
Learners who struggle in public schools due to autism or related challenges attend our year-round day school thanks to our partnership with 14 central Virginia school districts. Our schools combine the strengths of applied behavior analysis, special education, speech-language pathology, and occupational and physical therapies to address the needs of each student.
AGES SERVED: Kindergarten - 22 years
FUNDING: When a student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) recommends private day placement and the VIA Day Schools are identified as the right setting, public school funds cover costs. Private pay may be an option for some families.
ENROLLMENT PROCESS: Students must be referred to VIA by their school district as a result of their IEP process.
NEXT STEPS: If your central Virginia public school district has recommended private day placement as part of your child’s IEP, please have your school district contact VIA directly. If not, VIA’s Outpatient Services may be an option, especially for those ages 2 - 22. If you need more information about the IEP process, contact your local school district.
Adult options promote learning, personal growth, individual choice, and meaningful engagement—all delivered in collaboration with clients, guardians, and service providers. In addition to day services, we also provide consultations by behavior analysts to help clients and their caregivers with individualized support plans. On-site vocational training and job preparation are also available.
AGES SERVED: 18 years and up
FUNDING: Most adults in this program use a Developmental Disability Waiver through Medicaid to cover costs while others use private payment.
ENROLLMENT PROCESS: Once funding is secured, see next steps below.

Help with communication, social skills, emotional regulation, completion of daily living tasks, and management of difficult behaviors is provided in school and in our outpatient clinic. Options include psychological diagnosis and therapy, speech-language therapy, and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)—all available for those with autism spectrum disorder and related challenges.
AGES SERVED: 2 - 22 years
FUNDING: Services are typically paid for by insurance or private payment.
ENROLLMENT PROCESS: Clients come to Outpatient Services in a variety of ways. Some are referred by their physicians or schools, others find us through their own research, and some use our services if the VIA School or Adult Services programs don’t provide the right fit.
