The Genesis School, which provides services to children and adults with autism ages 7-28, welcomed school and adult program participants back to school this month in a new location on the grounds of St. Raphael Parish located at 600 Newbridge Rd. in East Meadow, according to Eden II Programs, a non-profit organization serving families living with autism.

On Wednesday at 6 p.m. the Genesis School will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the occasion.

“This new location is perfect for Genesis. Moving to this location keeps our programs in Nassau County and enables us to house the school, adult day habilitation and outreach programs all under one roof,” said LouAnne Haley, a parent of a Genesis School participant and member of the Eden II Board of Trustees.

Randy Horowitz, the associate executive director of educational services at Eden II Programs, added that the new East Meadow location will provide a continuum of quality services for students and families and promises to be a place where "we build bridges with the community in efforts to promote the best quality of life for all of our students and families living with an autism spectrum disorder.”

Since 1976, Eden II Programs has provided services to children and adults with autism through a range of specialized community-based programs and other opportunities that enable participants to achieve the highest possible quality of life.

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) provides the framework for all of Eden II's programs, according to a press release. Eden II provides intensive behavioral services in the form of 1:1 and 2:1 instruction and as students demonstrate success and readiness, group instruction is introduced.
