S.P.E.A.K. is an Extended School Year (ESY) program founded by the Autism Society of Pittsburgh in 1974 to ease transitioning between school years by preventing or reducing learning regression common to children with autism.

S.P.E.A.K. is a program for children ages 5 through 21 who have a primary diagnosis on the Autism Spectrum, are in good health, mobile, and able to participate in community activities.  S.P.E.A.K. provides Community Based Instruction (CBI) and addresses each child’s ESY goals and objectives. The program also provides music therapy, speech services, swimming, CBI classroom trips, field trips, art activities, and adapted physical education.

If you have additional questions, please contact the Autism Society of Pittsburgh at 412–856–7223.

We will follow legislative guidelines associated with regulations handed down for the COVID pandemic.
