PALS Autism School is the only specialized and dedicated elementary and secondary school in British Columbia for children and adolescents with autism, accompanied by a program for adults (with autism) to further develop life skills.
The school uses the proven Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) method to provide core education, life skills and socials skills as a foundation for independence.
PALS Autism School was founded in 2007 by five mothers of children with autism and complex developmental disabilities. These mothers believed that adequate programming did not exist to meet the special needs of their children, and for many other children across the province.
PALS is dedicated to effective and efficient teaching paired with innovative and proven behaviour management tools in a caring setting.
