         Our program is designed to meet the needs of children on the autism spectrum.   Through an intensive program utilizing Discrete Trial Instruction, Incidental Teaching, Natural Environment Training, as well as individual and small group instruction, skills designated by each student's IEP are developed, refined, and generalized.  In addition, students are mainstreamed wherever possible and when it is in the best interest of the student.  Along with academic areas, our program focuses on developing functional skills in order to allow the student to better assimilate in the community and in the home environment.
