An Independent, Co-Educational School for children with Autism

Where Students Grow and Thrive Towards Independance


Helping Students Shine

Welcome to Woodbury Autism Education and Research, where we are dedicated to providing exceptional education and support for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Our unique service is designed to address the diverse needs of these children, helping them thrive, grow towards independence and reach their full potential.

At the heart of our service is Ruben’s Place, our specialized school readiness group program, catering to children from the age of 4. Here, we create a nurturing and inclusive environment where young learners with autism can develop essential skills, socialize, and prepare for their educational journey ahead. Our experienced team understand the challenges these children face and is committed to providing tailored support that fosters growth and development.

Woodbury, our primary school placement is a beacon of excellence in autism education. It is the only school in the region dedicated to implementing the proven and highly effective teaching methods of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). This evidence-based approach has demonstrated remarkable results in enhancing communication, behaviour, and academic skills in individuals with autism.

Through our holistic approach, we strive to empower every child with the tools they need to navigate their educational journey with confidence. We believe that with the right guidance and an individualized educational plan, every child has the potential to achieve remarkable growth and transition into a supported environment in a mainstream school.
