Finding an early education setting for your child with autism spectrum disorder or developmental delays is challenging. Although many schools are eager to provide services to children with ASD, the supports they have available may not be sufficient for treating autism and allowing the child to reach their maximum potential.
In addition, many children with ASD do not possess the foundation skills necessary to be successful in school and group settings. CABS works to build those missing foundation skills and bridge that gap from home therapy to a traditional school setting.
In a typical day, children practice play skills, peer interactions, functional communication, problem solving, self-help skills, and pre-academic skills in one-on-one and small group settings. Emphasis is placed on making groups and peers fun and helping our children learn to love learning.
One-on-one support is constant throughout the day and programs incorporate direct therapy with a speech and language pathologist and Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Lessons are created with input of our teachers and social worker, and implemented by our Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs).
Children enrolled in our therapeutic preschool are typically between the ages of four and seven years old. Services are offered on a full-day and half-day basis and parent training in the home, school, or community setting is scheduled weekly. Services are based on potential to benefit from group settings, and are contingent on authorization for ABA services by insurance.
