our story

At the Heart of Rimland, A Mother's Love for Her Son

Rosalind Oppenheim

With her commanding voice and unwavering commitment to her son’s welfare, Rosalind Oppenheim challenged the standards of her time and became one of the first women to revolutionize the way individuals with autism were treated, cared for, and thought about.  Determined to leave a legacy rich with opportunity for her son, Rosalind created a reality out of her vision – The Rimland School for Autism.  Believing parents should always be involved in their children’s care, Rosalind’s model was based on inclusive, collaborative care and believing there was limitless opportunity for individuals with autism.  We, the current Rimland leaders, staff, and parents, are proud to continue her legacy.
