who we are

who we are

In 1977, something remarkable began. Judith Weber was searching for inventive solutions to an overwhelming challenge: providing a relevant and effective education for her severely autistic son, Tobin. Her efforts and successes attracted the support of other parents and of the school district, who urged her to start a new school. Tobinworld was born, and for over 40 years served the needs of up to 300 emotionally disturbed, autistic or developmentally disabled students a year.
 

In 2003, Tobinworld expanded its charter to open a non-profit community-based mental health clinic, treating children and adolescents struggling with developmental disabilities and mental health challenges and supporting their families in meeting these challenges. We assist youth ages 5 to 21 in developing the skills and behaviors that support a happy and productive life.

We believe that parents and caregivers play a vital role in improving the lives of their children and view them as an essential part of our treatment team.
