Trinity Services was originally founded as a school in 1950. Today, the school remains a vital support for students with developmental disabilities ages 3-21 in the New Lenox area. When a local school district is unable to provide appropriate services,
Trinity School offers an alternative for students with autism or severe developmental delays.
Using applied behavior analysis techniques, students are supported so they can learn functional academic, interpersonal, social and communication skills. A key piece of the educational experience is community integration, including shopping, educational field trips and use of local parks and recreational facilities. The goal of the school program is to help each student develop skills that will allow him or her to return to the local school district.
Trinity School, located in New Lenox, serves about 30 students with disabilities from a wide geographic area.
