Welcome to Ivy Street School

Since 1993, Ivy Street School, a therapeutic day and residential program, has been helping teens and young adults gain the skills they need to successfully transition to adult life. We are currently enrolling students seeking support with:

  • Transition to Adulthood
  • High-Functioning Autism
  • Mood and Anxiety-Based Disorders
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Traumatic or Acquired Brain Injury
  • Learning Disorders

Ivy Street School’s program philosophy is to capitalize on student’s strengths and interests in order to maximize their skill development and capacity for independent living and full meaningful participation in their communities. Our interdisciplinary team supports students in building executive functioning skills, self-regulation, social skills, and transition planning.

Located in a beautiful residential neighborhood in Brookline situated next to a nature reserve, we have all the resources and attractions of Boston in our back yard. Indeed, the city is the school’s second classroom. Much of our learning and therapeutic interventions take place in the community. Our small size makes it possible for us to incorporate innovative, individualized, hands-on experiences into all aspects of day and residential school life.

Please take a moment to view our neighborhood and hear from our families in the two videos on the right side of your screen.
