A path to life-long relationships.

NuPath provides specialized supports for adults living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) through a network of well-trained staff and fulfilling experiences to enhance well-being.

Each residence utilizes innovative, person-centered planning and a coordinated approach to suit his/her needs. NuPath’s residential team is passionate, experienced and driven by their commitment to create memorable experiences and positive outcomes for each person we support.

Core Principles:

Natural Experiences

We offer community-based supports using natural experiences and environments as teachable moments to promote personal well-being.

Autism environments

We want our residences to be places that our program participants are proud to call home. NuPath’s high staffing ratios (3:5) ensure safety and high-quality care in a residence that is spacious, immaculate and well-decorated.

Health and Wellness

To provide program participants with the tools needed to live healthier lives, each residence has dedicated exercise space and commercial-grad equipment, including treadmills and recumbent bikes. Home-cooked meals, made from scratch, give program participants the proper nutrition needed to enhance their health and well-being.

Specialized staff are trained to give medications used to treat illness and ongoing medical conditions. Any medication used to address behavior and psycho-social conditions is only given at the lowest dosage necessary for therapeutic results.

Scheduling Consistency

Written, verbal and/or visual schedules are consistently used to support activities of daily living (ADLs), introduce new experiences and encourage personal growth.

Behaviors

If a challenging behavior arises, NuPath uses Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to resolve the situation. Physical restraint may occur, but only in the event of an emergency. It is never used for behavior modification or as a consequence.

Our goal is to foster and support positive transitions across all settings through the use of individualized, proven and successful techniques in a person’s prior environment.

Referrals

When appropriate, NuPath partners with educational and/or fellow residential treatment programs, including the Boston Higashi School and Daily Life Therapy®.
