Crotched Mountain School to Remain Open Under New Ownership
Crotched Mountain Foundation has found a way to keep Crotched Mountain not just operating but grow to help more students.
In coordination with the state of New Hampshire, Department of Education and Department of Health and Human Services Gersh Autism is initiating the approval process to take over the operations of Crotched Mountain. Under the agreement, Gersh Autism will assume full operational and financial responsibility for the day and boarding schools serving children and adults on the autism spectrum effective the date when they are slated to close.
Ensuring a Seamless Transition
For over 30 years, Gersh Autism has been successfully operating educational and therapeutic programs for children on the autism spectrum. Gersh Autism is working with local officials to secure approval of the ownership transfer and transition of the appropriate licenses so there is no interruption in the educational services for students and their families. Crotched Mountain Foundation will continue to operate the school until the acquisition is complete, with Gersh Autism providing consulting and operational assistance at no cost during the interim period to ensure a smooth transition.
Gersh Autism has been changing the lives of individuals on the autism spectrum and their families for over 30 years, providing a full portfolio of services including education, therapy, independent living skills, life plan management, residential services, vocational training, events, summer camp, driving school, ABA therapy, equine therapy and recreation. Gersh Autism believes every individual deserves the opportunity to grow and thrive in a school setting, as well as in the community and home. Its teachers/therapists identify the thinking and learning styles of each student and develop a customized program to help meet their potential and personal best. With a team of more than 400 professionals, Gersh Autism currently operates schools and programs throughout New York State, Washington State, and Puerto Rico.
Gersh Autism is working towards a seamless transition of ownership of the Crotched Mountain campus. Current students will not see an interruption in services, and prospective families may begin registering their students for Gersh Autism’s groundbreaking services today.Request Information
