My brother is severely autistic, and attended ALG for several years as a child and teenager. It is peerless in the field of autism education. Dedicated and well-trained teachers and staff, and well organized for funding, outreach, and parent support. Really cannot say enough for how much of a difference they made in my family's life. They helped my brother develop a skill set that significantly augmented his ability to communicate with us, and gave him the building blocks and skills to live a happier life.

There is no better school for autism than Alpine in the world. They use behavioral teaching methods that are scientifically proven to be successful, have an extraordinarily well trained, caring and deeply committed staff and Bridget Taylor, the founder and leader of the school, and far and away the best and most knowledgeable educational professional in the field of autism.

Alpine is truly a place where children and adults with autism are able to grow and learn. Every staff member is highly educated and passionate about their position, and it shows. As a sibling of an Alpine student, I can honestly say that my brother's life would be drastically different if he did not have the guidance of his teachers on a daily basis. Alpine values every aspect of helping a child with autism grow into a young adult that can be a part of his/her community. I am forever grateful to Alpine and the staff that is so dedicated to being there!

Alpine Learning Group has changed our family's life in ways we never could have imagined. Our son has only been enrolled in Alpine's education program for less than a year; however, the changes in him are amazing. The entire staff is 100% dedicated to helping each student reach their full academic, social and emotional potential. Students are treated with respect and professionalism. Without question Alpine is the single greatest thing to ever happen to our entire family.

The best thing my husband and I have done for our son was getting him enrolled at Alpine Learning Group. He started there when he was 3.5 years old. He is now 7. The entire staff, led by Bridget Taylor, are dedicated, passionate, patient and experienced. The progress our son has made is nothing short of miraculous. He is now engaged with people and in the world around him. He has a wide range of interests and is above grade level academically. He is independent and a pleasure to be around. If not for Alpine, I know he would be a shadow of the child we have today.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have more like them!

The school has been a blessing to our family, it has served both my daughter and nephew. The dedication of each and every staff member to the education of our children is unparalleled. It extends way beyond the classroom, to the home, all family members, including 'typical' siblings. They pay attention to every detail, they are very receptive and open to parent's input and request. They love what they do, they love our children, and take special care to treat them as individuals, always raising the bar for them, never comprimising.
Frankly, I just run out of words to express our gratitude for all the great things they have done, and continue to do.
This is a great place, my daughter loves it, we love it, and it's hard to imagine what our lives would be like without these dedicated teachers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it bigger, too many families with autistic children don't get the help they need.

Alpine has had an extraordinary impact on our son's life, and that of our family's. SInce he began receiving outreach services in 2010, and has attend the school full time since last year, we have watched him grow tremendously. It's been a broad impact on his overall engagement, conduct, and speech. We can't thank Alpine enough. I can't imagine a more caring and dedicated group of professionals.
