Empowering Long Island’s Journey through Autism - 20 years of Service!
At ELIJA we work to ensure that children, adolescents, adults, and their families, affected by Autism, can live their best lives and we strive to make a difference. Championing Hope, One Child at a Time!
2002 - The ELIJA
Foundation offering training on the most advanced treatment and educational strategies to the community, “Educating the Educators”.
2006 - The ELIJA School
opens to educate school-aged children with Autism through a 12-month educational and treatment program, in a one-to-one student to teacher ratio, focusing on the development of functional communication, academic, social and life skills.
2016 – The ELIJA Transition Program & Services (TPS) support adolescents and adults with Autism, who have aged-out of school programming, continuing to build transferable skills that lead to success vocationally, socially, academically, and in all areas related to health, wellness and overall quality of life.
2017 – The ELIJA Farm is purchased to run a sustainable, non-profit farm in South Huntington, NY committed to using environmentally responsible practices raising high quality produce. The ELIJA Farm CSA (community supported agriculture) is dedicated to enriching the health and wellness of our community through dynamic learning opportunities to its diverse membership.
2020 – ELIJA Living pilots a new housing initiative by placing four adults with Autism in their own apartments, in a multi-use complex located just minutes from the ELIJA Farm.
With 1 in every 44 children born in the US today being diagnosed with Autism, ELIJA is ready to support this growing population throughout their lives!
