We are more than a store and gallery. At LOVEMARIN, we realize how lucky we are to live in Marin County and we want to do what we can to support the land, the animals, and the people who make this such a unique and wonderful place.
THIS MONTH WE WERE LUCKY TO VISIT AND LEARN ABOUT OAK HILL SCHOOL IN SAN ANSELMO, A DYNAMIC EDUCATIONAL/PRE-VOCATIONAL/THERAPEUTIC PROGRAM WHERE LEARNERS WITH AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDERS AND DEVELOPMENTAL DIFFERENCES THRIVE.
"Oak Hill School is #morethanaclassroom, with a staff of more than teachers. It’s the ideal school for students ages 6-22 with autism and other developmental differences to find fulfillment. In addition, they’ve partnered with the University of California San Francisco’s Autism and Neurodevelopmental Program, headed up by internationally known autism expert, Dr. Robert Hendren. Dr Hendren and his UCSF team, along with Oak Hill staff, apply and study science-based treatment and education models.
Through strong therapeutic relationships, they sensitively observe and adapt individualized academic and behavioral instruction with UCSF oversight. Students thrive in their 3 students to 1 teacher ratio.
Their world-class UCSF medical researchers, speech and occupational therapists, teachers and psychotherapists work in concert to reveal a unique- and constantly updated-360 degree view of your child. Situated on a 7 acre campus in an unrivaled pastoral setting in the hills of Marin County, Oak Hill School students learn to successfully self-regulate and tap into their own creativity.
Students are referred to Oak Hill by their school districts, clinicians, physicians, advocates and other parents. Oak Hill School works closely with school districts to return students to the educational mainstream when appropriate .
Oak Hill School is approved as a special education facility by the California Department of Education. The school is licensed to accept students with public school district funding as well as private tuition.
Through innovative educational approaches and social-emotional learning, Oak Hill School empowers students on the autism spectrum to realize their full potential.
