About Our Facility
Eagleton School is a private, residential, psycho-educational treatment facility for boys and young men between the ages of nine and twenty two with multiple special needs. These difficulties include Autism, Aspergers Syndrome, Communication and Cognitive Delays, Behavioral Disorders, Emotional Disturbances, Sexual Abuse issues, and/or Learning Disabilities. Eagleton is continuously refining and expanding our program as more children are being diagnosed and seeking treatment throughout the country.
Eagleton School is an accredited program thorough the Massachsetts Department of Education and Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care. We are members of the National Association of Private Special Education Centers (NAPSEC), Massachusetts Association of Approved Chapter 766 Private Schools (mapps), and Aspergers Association of New England (AANE). The Eagleton approach to treatment is distinctive: The Educational, Residential, Clinical, Vocational, Equine, Horticulture, Culinary, Adventure Based, and Recreational Programs interact to provide meaningful experiences. To create and maintain a culture of trust, influence, and non violence, Eagleton utilizes a behavior management /intervention model produced by NAPPI (Non-Abusive Psychological and Physical Intervention. A team approach supports and develops each students potential to reintegrate into their family and society. Understanding Family (UniFy) is a strength based program designed to promote growth and learning within the family. This exclusive program happens one weekend a month when many families gather together at Eagleton to share in a wide range of therapeutic activities. Our small size allows us to focus on each individual residents needs and skills, allowing each boy the opportunity to succeed in future endeavors.
