To provide each child the tools to effectively function to their fullest potential beyond graduation with eagerness to take their place in the world and contributing to society in their field(s) of endeavor.
"The New Horizon Center for Autism is structured to provide every student with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other specific learning disabilities with an appropriate foundation in the areas of academics, behavior, daily living skills, vocational skills, and independence. Our goal is to promote a higher quality of life, and the realization of the full intellectual and social development of students .
"We envision an social academic environment that serves both typical and exceptional students so as to provide models and friends for our exceptional students. We envision a dedicated, loving, knowledgeable, well-trained, empathetic, supportive and committed staff who want to make the difference in the lives of students. We seek a staff that is loyal, honest, and aware of the responsibility in caring for each student with whom they are placed. We envision a staff that will train students to exchange inappropriate behavior for effective communication.
We envision an administrative team that is strongly committed to helping children achieve regulation and strong foundations for learning, New Horizon's student centered methodology, a supportive community, and long-term financial stability--all defining our Center as the premier state-of-the-art Center for Autism in Cincinnati, Ohio. We look forward to a team that works together to provide mutual respect to each other and to our students where each individual receives public praise and personal gentle correction.
After looking for and not finding an outlet for our own son with Autism, we decided to develop New Horizon Center for Autism to provide an outlet for socialization and academic enrichment for him and other students that could benefit.
New Horizon Center for Autism began as an enrichment and summer camps program in June of 2010, and evolved into a full service Center for Autism in the 2012-2013 school year that provides tutoring, social skills training, and therapy in the evenings and summer.

Policies and Procedures
The Therapeutic and Tutoring Services will be small group and centers based.
Behavior expectations at New Horizon are that students will control their body within their space. This will be explicitly taught and modeled. If a student upon admittance exhibits violent and aggressive behavior towards their own person, and/ or others then interventions will be provided and monitored for progress. If student's behavior continues beyond normal intervention procedures parent/s or guardian will be notified. Should student behavior become a pattern that causes harm to themselves or peers, parent will be informed that their student will not be able to continue in a group setting and will be invited to place them in our 1 on 1 private sessions held on Fridays. When we are able to teach them to manage their behaviors they will then be given the opportunity to resume small group sessions.
Please know that at New Horizon will make every effort to keep all persons in the program by providing progressive interventions,however, be assured the safety of all clients and staff is our top priority. If your young person is a runner, New Horizon will not be an appropriate setting for your child due to lack of secure areas, and staffing to accommodate their intense needs. Please call so that we can provide referrals if needed.
Both summer and school year programs offered at New Horizon are for high functioning, low-incidence persons on the Autism Spectrum that are ages 9-22 students.
