Autism is a developmental disorder of neurobiological origin that is defined on the basis of behavioral and developmental features. Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are present from birth or very early in development and affect essential human behaviors such as social interaction, the ability to communicate ideas and feelings, imagination, and the establishment of relationships with others. It generally has life-long affect on how children learn to be social beings, to take care of themselves, and to participate in the community.
A number of treatments, therapies and interventions have been introduced to ameliorate the negative impact of autism. Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is one of the best studied interventions. ABA is a systematic process of collecting data on a child’s behaviors and using a variety of behavioral conditioning techniques to teach and reinforce desired behaviors while extinguishing harmful or undesired behaviors.
We are passionate about accommodating the design and implementation of academic, social, and behavioral instruction to students with intellectual disabilities, autism, emotional disturbance, speech and language impairments, physical disabilities, and other health impairments. Our goal is to ensure children will thrive and develop in an adaptable social and educational atmosphere.
