Our History
Pine Grove School was founded in 1969 by Carl Herring, beginning operations at a time when conditions such as autism and pervasive developmental delays were not clearly understood as disorders. The facility has evolved into an effective provider of services for children suffering from these disabilities. The school began with three children who were unilaterally dismissed from a program specializing in emotional and behavioral disorders because they were deemed to be too difficult to serve in the existing system of care. Since that time Pine Grove has provided comprehensive, therapeutics, and education services to over 500 clients both nationally and internationally. The scope of the referrals underscored the recognized need for highly specialized programs across the country.

What Others are Saying

I think Pine Grove is a wonderful place. I really feel like the staff care for these special children. It is hard enough to have to let our children go but it makes it a little easier when I know that my son is being well taken care of. I know that I would not want my son Cody anywhere else.
Alisa L., Parent
Pine Grove has taught my son to live. His life is so enriched by his days and experiences at Pine Grove. I can’t begin to put on paper – how do you give a child a life? Pine Grove has given my autistic son a life!!”
