School Age Program

Forest Rose School provides a free and appropriate educational program for students from 6-22 years of age with Multiple Disabilities or Autism. It is a fully chartered public school. We are proud of the positive relationships we have with the local school districts in Fairfield County.


Placement at Forest Rose School is determined by the student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) team, consisting of the parents, local school district staff and a representative of Forest Rose School.


Along with a curriculum based on functional academics, special instruction is given in practical skills for living in the community and home as well as training in vocational skills. Forest Rose School promotes the understanding of sensory integration difficulties and offers a Snoezelen environment for students and access to a therapeutic pool.
