Center of Excellence
The Els Center of Excellence is now moving from concept to reality. As of August 17, 2015, we began operations for the Lower School and Auditorium buildings. The Center is an extraordinary project that is designed to show the world what can be available to children and young adults on the autism spectrum. There are numerous program elements and research plans that will expand the reach of the Center far beyond South Florida. The virtual aspects of the Center are discussed under the E-learning tab. The physical components include an educational program for 300 students ages 3-21, applied research, medical and professional services, transition to adulthood and its myriad of aspects including adult living and job training.
