Preschool/Elementary School Program
We know that education is the primary intervention for young children with an autism spectrum disorder.  Our state-approved curriculum emphasizes effective, evidence-based interventions. It focuses not only on the acquisition of knowledge and new skills, but also on socialization, language and communication strategies, and modifying those behaviors that can interfere with learning and living.
Our data-driven program adheres to all of the dimensions of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA): it is applied, behavioral, analytic, technological, conceptually systematic, and effective and applies procedures of generality of behavior. 
Our Preschool/Elementary Program offers:
  • A full day of instruction
  • An individualized program
  • Class size of no more than 6 students
  • Student:staff ratio of 1:1 for preschoolers
