Special Classes for Children With Autism

Individualized for your child’s level of skills

The Children’s School for Early Development is sponsoring a program that will provide graduates of The Children’s School as well as members of the community with an opportunity to increase and maintain their social skills, with the aim of expanding these skills to new environments.

This eight-week, after-school enrichment program takes place in a child-friendly setting and will follow a curriculum based on the principles of applied behavior analysis. A highly experienced NYS Certified Special Education Teacher and Speech Therapist, both with an extensive background and high level of training in applied behavior analysis/verbal behavior, will facilitate the group with the additional support of a trained teacher’s assistant/aide.

All aspects of the curriculum have been tailored to optimize each child’s opportunities to interact with a group of peers. Based on each child’s current set of social skills, a trained instructor will provide the appropriate level of prompting, modeling and facilitation needed to support successful and positive social interactions.
