It is designed for children ages 3-15 with autism spectrum disorders and delays in language, motor skills, academic skills, play skills, as well as inappropriate classroom behaviors.

This program utilizes ABA technologies such as discrete trial teaching, positive reinforcement, and extensive data collection to increase the students’ skills. Each therapist is trained by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) on how to assess skill levels, lead structured group activities, and execute effective one-on-one instructional time.
