CURRICULUM

We use a variety of ABA related assessment tools in order to develop treatment plans specific to a student’s specific skill set. The Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment Placement Program (VB-MAPP) and Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills (ABLLS-R) are excellent curriculum guides developed specifically for children with autism and other developmental disabilities.  These two assessments are primarily used to determine the student’s strengths and weaknesses in skill areas related to communication, social interaction, and play.  The Vineland-II is also used to assess the student’s adaptive behavior across the domains of communication, daily living skills, socialization, and motor skills.  The Vineland-II provides us with a composite score which allows us to track improvement across these domains over the course of treatment.  All assessments are completed upon enrollment and are updated monthly based on the student’s progress in the treatment plan.  All treatment plans are thoroughly reviewed and updated with the parents on a regular basis for progress monitoring and continued success. 

ABA THERAPY

Individualized Instruction

Our ABA therapy focuses on teaching the skills associated with the core deficits of Autism.  Every treatment program is different in order to ensure that each student’s needs are met.  Teaching occurs in the variety of settings around our facility including intensive and natural environments as well as classrooms.  The learner to teacher ratio is primarily 1:1 with some group therapy opportunities based on the needs of the individual.  Students attend in three hour sessions with up to two sessions back to back.  Some students attend two to three days per week, while others attend five days per week – based on instructor availability and student need.

Upon acceptance into the program, each student is assigned a team including an Instructor(s) and a Program Coordinator.  The Program Coordinator reviews the information and guides the student’s learning program.  The Program Coordinator is highly skilled in Applied Behavior Analysis, collects data on an ongoing basis, and meets with families on a monthly basis to review student progress.  All programs are overseen by the Clinical Director who is licensed in psychology as well as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.

SCHOOL PROGRAM
