Tobinworld is a non-profit school for children and young adults with behavior problems. Typically students have been classified as severely emotionally disabled, autistic or developmentally disabled. Often their problems are so severe that it has been difficult or impossible for them to be accepted by, or successfully educated in, regular public school programs. Tobinworld's policy is to accept students between the ages of 6 through 22 years of age without regard to race, sex, religion, I.Q., grade level or national origin.
Tobinworld seeks to impart to each student the skills and behaviors he or she needs in order to live as happy, normal and productive a life as possible. The program philosophy integrates special education with behavioral psychology and carries out an individual behavior and academic program for each student. Medication is not used at Tobinworld for behavior problems. Instead, we address behavior problems with a consistent behavioral and educational program. Whenever feasible, our goal is to return the student to public school or to a competitive or sheltered work opportunity.
Tobinworld is certified by the California Department of Education.
