Haugland Learning Center
We serve the educational needs of over 200 children and young adults with Autism, Asperger syndrome, and other developmental
disabilities in the state of Ohio.
We currently operate classroom-based programs in Columbus/Dublin, Lancaster, Portsmouth, Sandusky, and Pedro, Ohio.
We also operate home-based programs throughout the state. HLC accepts students from preschool through twelfth grade
(including those with behaviors) and is therefore an excellent alternative to public school.
All students with an Autism, Asperger's, or PDD-NOS diagnosis are eligible to receive the Autism Scholarship from the Ohio Department of Education, which can be used to pay for educational services at HLC. Students with other disabilities may qualify for the Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship, which can also be used to pay for services at HLC. Additionally, students with any learning disability are eligible for placement at HLC by their home school district via direct contract. Click here to hear what parents are saying about HLC.
- Cost: all educational costs at HLC are covered by the Autism Scholarship, Jon Peterson Scholarship, or directly by school districts, making HLC a quality program that all parents can afford.
- Social: Students feel welcomed and accepted at HLC instead of being singled out because of idiosyncrasies. Many develop friendships for the first time and participate in social activities outside of school.
- Academic: At HLC, we design each studentís academic program around their skill level so that they are continually challenged while experiencing success. We build the skills back into every student to help them leap ahead academically!
- Communication: At HLC, we instruct students in how to self-monitor so that they can identify when they need a break. We teach how to communicate needs so that emotional meltdowns are minimized.
- Peace of Mind: Parents can relax, knowing that their child is educated in a safe environment and that their workday will NOT be interrupted by calls to pick up their child for incidents that happen at school.
- Home: Our academic and behavior specialists work with families to develop effective educational and behavioral plans to strengthen both the home environment as well as continue the educational process.
