We provide one on one teaching at our center in individual classrooms for each student. Each student is taught using a unique curriculum that is specifically designed for them in order for them to succeed.
If the student is nonverbal, we typically start by focusing on communication skills which include reading and typing. All students are taught academics in order to strengthen their communication skills. Our focus is on engaging the students in order to maximize the amount of time they are learning.
- Focus on the student’s strengths until you have built up the their self-esteem.
- Behavior modification is a valuable tool when implemented properly utilizing the correct curriculum and success criteria.
- We adamantly believe in the Scientific Method. We constantly take extensive data and modify our strategies to ensure that each child achieves his or her potential.
- We follow the principals of the Rosenthal Study ( Great Expectations. ) Assume everyone is capable and teach them accordingly.
- Keyboarding is an essential skill that should be taught to all visual learners.
- There are no bad students, only bad teaching methods.
- Visual learners do not learn sequentially. We teach them using a non-linear multi-dimensional approach.
- Autism and mental retardation are not synonymous.
- Non-verbal means not able to verbally communicate. It does not mean unable to learn.
- Autistic kids do not have “behaviors,” they are expressing frustrations.
- Begin every day with movement or sports. Physical activity helps settle autistic children and adults and gets them more focused.
- Biomedical Intervention is an ideal complement to Educational Intervention.
