TOBINWORLD has been in existence in the Los Angeles Area since October, 1977. It was brought about by the concern of one mother, Judith Weber, to provide her severely autistic son with an appropriate education. As other parents learned of her efforts to educate her son, they asked if she could help their children, which she did. Soon the school district urged her to start a school and she named it TOBINWORLD, after her son, Tobin. In just eight years, her school grew from 12 students to over 275 with a student body from kindergarten to 12th grade. TOBINWORLD serves students ages 5 years through 22 years. As of this school year we have over 280 students who live in communities throughout the greater Los Angeles area, representing more than a dozen school districts. The school is located in Glendale in five beautiful brick buildings.
In January 1998, TOBINWORLD II was opened in Brentwood, California, one of the fastest growing cities in the Bay Area. TOBINWORLD II is a smaller version of TOBINWORLD.
