About The Lionheart School
Who is Lionheart – In our 23rd year, we are a nonprofit organization serving children and young adults with autism in our school and vocational programs. The Lionheart School is located right behind Wills Park and Lionheart WORKS is located in downtown Crabapple.
Lionheart is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in the year 2000 by a group of parents and professionals who created a supportive and nurturing environment for children with challenges of relating and communicating. Lionheart started in a small cottage on the grounds of the Alpharetta Presbyterian Church, and worked diligently to create a model program that focused on each child’s individual differences. In 2010, with the support of families, friends, foundations and the community, Lionheart moved into a new building that was designed specifically for the population it serves.
The Lionheart School emphasizes relationships, emotional intelligence, abstract critical thinking, problem solving, and social cognition. The academic program integrates the principles of evidence-based practices for students with learning differences while always considering their individual profiles. Each student has an individual learning plan that considers interests, strengths, and preferences, as well as strategies to address targeted challenge areas.
