The Guild enhances the quality of life and promotes the independence of all students
The Guild School
The Guild School serves 90 students from age 6 to their 22nd birthday who are diagnosed with intellectual disabilities, including autism, along with concurrent mental health diagnoses and challenging behaviors. Students have individualized behavior support plans based on the principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis and receive evidence-based, trauma-informed mental health care.
Most of The Guild's students reside in one of nine family-style homes in neighborhoods located in communities around Concord. The focus in the residences is on developing skills for increased independence and enhancing the student’s grasp of activities of daily life.
“The teachers are amazingly caring and warm, and really excited about their jobs. You can tell they're really happy to work here and they really focus on the students' strengths.” – Kathy Lewiecki, Guild School parent
