A path to stronger communities.

NuPath’s innovative program model addresses the unique and ongoing needs of people living with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).

Core Principles:

Natural Experiences

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

Autism environments

NuPath’s high staffing ratios (3:5) ensure safety and high-quality care in a environment that promotes personal growth and well-being.

Health and Wellness

To provide program participants with the tools needed to live healthier lives, each program has dedicated exercise space and commercial-grade equipment, including treadmills and recumbent bikes.

Nurses are on-site to give medications for any illnesses 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 well-being.


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 programs through the use of individualized, proven and successful techniques in previous environments.


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