The Faison School Welcome to The Faison School for Autism, a nonprofit autism center dedicated to providing resources for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) and their families. The Faison School represents a unique private/public partnership collaboration between a nonprofit school and major university research partners: the Kennedy Krieger Institute at Johns Hopkins University, and the Teachers College at Columbia University.

Through our three-pronged approach of evidence based treatment, research, and community education, The Faison School serves as a learning center where the most effective autism therapies are used, taught, and shared. We are dedicated to giving each child the best chance he or she has to improve their life's journey. Our philosophy is a holistic one, focusing on the child, their family, and all those who touch and enrich their lives. The center is located in Richmond, Virginia.

The Faison School for Autism is a 501C 3 not for profit organization and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, creed, or gender. It is accredited by CABAS®. It is also accredited by VAISEF, whose accreditation process has been approved by the Virginia Council for Private Education as authorized by the Virginia State Board of Education.

Student Teacher Did You Know?
  • Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability in the nation, affecting one in 68 children.

  • Autism is now the third most common childhood disorder, more common than Down Syndrome and childhood diabetes combined. It occurs more frequently than childhood cancer, cystic fibrosis, and multiple sclerosis together.

  • The CDC and early childhood professionals agree the earlier children receive appropriate assessment and intervention, the more that can be done to help them reach their full potential.

This Web site has been designed to provide helpful information to families impacted by autism, as well as to professionals, educators, donors and the general community. You will also find information about our school programs and services and much more.
