Ivy Street School

Since 1993 we've been helping teens and young adults gain the skills they need to successfully transition to adult life. We support students and families struggling with the challenges of: Autism Spectrum DisorderBehavioral Health DiagnosesBrain Injury and other Neurological ConditionsPost-High School Transition Programming The foundation of our supportive learning environment is our small size and high student-staff ratio. Our expertise lies in our evidence-based life skills and social thinking curriculum and our immersive therapeutic programming. At our heart is a talented staff team committed to finding innovative ways to enrich lives.

Population(s) Served

Since 1973, MAB has provided supports in a range of residential and vocational settings in the Greater Boston area for adults with developmental disabilities, brain injuries, and secondary disorders such as blindness, deafness, behavioral challenges, cerebral palsy, and issues related to aging. Our experience allows us to help adults with diverse needs to maximize their independence and enjoy the best possible quality of life. Hundreds of young adults graduating from special education become eligible for state-funded employment and residential supports in Massachusetts each year. To help respond to this growing need, MAB opened its first residences for young adults. Local businesses and organizations partner with MAB to provide innovative vocational, volunteer and recreational opportunities. We also collaborate with other service providers and work with families to ensure that individuals with disabilities can pursue their dreams and live full lives in the community.
