Why Us?

Staff to Student Ratio

Our overall staff to student ratio is better than 1:1. A high staff to student ratio is necessary to allow for the various rates students acquire new skills. Being able to provide 1:1 instruction allows each student’s programming to move at a pace that is appropriate for that student and enables staff to make modifications to ensure that students are making desired gains. Additionally, a high staff to student ratio allows for increased ability to provide individualized instruction across environments including school, home and in the community.

BehaviorAnalyst

The Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) directly supervises all programs.   The BCBA works in conjunction with the Special Education Teacher to develop goals, monitor student progress, create and implement individualized systems of reinforcement, and train classroom teachers.

 

 

Special Education Teacher

The teacher works in conjunction with the Behavior Analyst to develop, implement, and monitor student programming and progress. The Special Education teacher trains and works hand in hand with the instructional assistants in their classroom to provide each student with a highly individualized program of instruction that is tailored to each student’s unique needs.

 

 

Our Process

  • What is ABA?
  •  How does ABA work?
  • Introduction to Applied Behavior Analysis
  • Natural Environment Teaching (NET)

“Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the science of behavior. As with other sciences such as chemistry and physics, researchers in ABA have found that behaviors follow certain laws, certain predictable patterns. Through countless experiments Behavior Analyst have shown that an organism’s behavior can be predicted and controlled based on certain environmental variables.”

ABA focuses on outcome rather than process. Behavior analysts continuously measure behavior to determine if progress is being made. Applied behavior analysis is data based  and has the best scientifically demonstrated track record for teaching skills and replacing problem behavior with appropriate social skills.

ABA is the science in which tactics derived from the principles of behavior are applied to improve socially significant behavior and experimentation is used to identify the variables responsible for the improvement in behavior. Dr. Vincent J. Carbone, Ed.D., BCBA-D provides an Introduction to Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

This video provides an illustration of Natural Environment Teaching with a young child with autism. This type of learning activity has become a recognized component of most ABA programs for children with autism. This program component is designed to transfer skills acquired in other learning activities to the naturally occurring settings experienced by most children. In addition, many skills such as manding (requesting) are best taught in environments that have naturally occurring reinforcing value for the learner.
