Autism is the third leading childhood disorder. It is increasing in prevalence and no one knows exactly why. Although there is currently no cure, autism is treatable. The Faison School is the only university affiliated school of its kind in the greater Richmond area to serve the special needs of children with autism.
The Faison School for Autism is dedicated to giving each child the best chance he or she has to improve their life’s journey. The School employs a three-pronged approach of empirically driven treatment, research, and training to best serve our students. Our philosophy is a holistic one, focusing on the child, their family, and all those who touch and enrich their lives.
