All of our teaching practices stem from the replication of the documented research and principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Positive Behavior Supports (PBS).  Aligning our program with these principles requires that data are collected as evidence and support of curriculum and procedures used.

Assessment/Instructional Strategies


The focus is on providing meaningful and productive activities to help students work on their individualized goals while participating in group and singular activities in social skills, communication skills, independent living skills, self-care skills, life-safety skills, vocational opportunities, volunteer opportunities, sports, nutrition and exercise, leisure activities and community outings.


Each child is encouraged to be as independent as possible based on his/her abilities, from making choices about hobbies and activities to relationships and life opportunities.
