Preparing For Life After Tuttle School

"What will the transition to adulthood be like for my child?” Although everyone's journey is unique to them, at Tuttle School our staff works to prepare students and families for life after Tuttle. From the moment students enter our program to the time that they say their farewells, they are immersed in age-appropriate daily living skills and self-help activities. With over fifty years of experience on our side, we have a network of professionals and resources to help families stay informed about the best choices regarding their child’s path beyond Tuttle.
