The Gersh Experience

The Gersh Experience, located in North Tonawanda, NY, is a residential supported living environment for young adults on the Autism Spectrum. The Gersh Experience offers a unique model in which a carefully customized program is created with each student’s learning style and specific challenges in mind. This model allows for customization of support across all areas (social skills, independent living skills, life skills and other significant areas). The philosophy, clinical approach, and practical methodology of The Gersh Experience, including our proprietary system, Real-Time Functional Therapy™ is based on the work of and discussion with leading experts in the field of psychology, human behavior and learning disabilities.

At The Gersh Experience, we have created a family atmosphere that encourages social interaction and skill development in a peer-centered, supported environment. This naturally leads to emotional and interpersonal growth for each student while our systematic program of training develops the specific skills required for self-sufficiency. Our residential living environment fosters a small community feeling where the students play an integral role in the day-to-day activities on campus.
