Program Features

Individualized academic, social and behavioral support based on student profile/need.

Discrete Trial Teaching Methodology
A highly structured technique that breaks skills down into smaller discrete components. This allows for increased learning opportunities through repetition and increases the likelihood of appropriate responding through delivery of reinforcers.

Functional Behavior Analysis (FBA)
A process through which the function or purpose of behavior is identified. This is done through an analysis of antecedents (things that precede a behavior) and consequences (things that occur after the behavior).

Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) / Behavior Support Strategies (BSS)
A written plan that outlines preventative and reactive strategies when dealing with problematic behavior, as identified in the FBA. Strategies include techniques to increase desired behavior while reducing problematic behavior.
