Anderson Center for Autism
Anderson Center for Autism is a not-for-profit organization in Staatsburg, NY, that offers the highest quality year-round day and residential programs to individuals on the autism spectrum, their families and community. Our curriculum features educational, cultural and recreational opportunities specifically designed to challenge each individual to the fullest extent of his or her own abilities.
Based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), our treatment approach focuses on techniques and interventions that use reinforcement to teach our individuals skills needed to reach their full potential. Our professional team administers ABA programs that comprehensively address each individual’s educational, emotional and social needs in a proactive, positive manner.
We understand that autism dramatically affects the lives of all who face it. For families, the autism community and public organizations, Anderson Center serves as a valuable resource by providing education, support and outreach services and information aimed at delivering assistance and increasing overall autism awareness.
To further raise awareness about autism, we are proudly hosting our second conference titled, Autism Tomorrow ~ The Changing Landscape on Wednesday, May 23 at The Grandview in Poughkeepsie. Field experts, individuals on the spectrum, and family members will share their unique perspectives on autism. Please visit www.tinyurl.com/ACAconf2012 for more information.

Darrow School: Small community, big opportunities
At Darrow, it’s not just what you learn, it’s what you live. Darrow’s innovative approach to education creates a dynamic learning environment inside the classroom and throughout the school community. Darrow is a co-ed college-preparatory boarding and day school where students in grades 9–12 are motivated to reach their potential and become their best selves. Darrow’s low 4:1 student-teacher ratio, small classes, challenging hands-on curriculum, inspiring National Historic Landmark campus, and personalized attention encourage students to become critical thinkers, confident learners, and creative individuals. Darrow is a place for students to stretch themselves and reach new horizons.
Another long-standing tradition at Darrow, stewardship of the earth, harkens back to our Shaker legacy. Darrow students study sustainability across the curriculum, helping them to become not only responsible caretakers of our historic campus, but also knowledgeable decision-makers and future leaders in global environmental issues.
Living within Darrow’s close-knit community makes it easy for students to learn about collaboration and teamwork. The combination of personalized feedback from highly accessible faculty and the hands-on effort of each individual allows every student to clearly see that he or she makes a difference. Darrow students learn that success may not come on the first try, but can be achieved through persistence and reflection. They also learn that it’s okay to make mistakes—it’s part of the process of becoming a life-long scholar and a responsible citizen.
