Our Programs provide a broad range of innovative services in the least restrictive settings possible.

The Groden Center , offers day and residential programs that provide functional skill and social development for youth from 3-21 years of age.  Our programs are grounded in evidence-based practice and based on applied-behavior analysis, allowing students to advance their communication, physical and adaptive living skills. We focus on outcomes that lead to greater community involvement and vocational opportunities.

Better Lives

In 1976, Drs. June and Gerald Groden opened the Groden Center in response to the absence of maximally effective services for persons with autism and other developmental challenges.

Forty years later, the program has expanded its services to children, teens, and adults with a range of learning and behavioral disabilities through four corporations in RI and MA.
