Our philosophy of teaching students with autism and other developmental disabilities is influenced by the research in Applied Behavior Analysis and own practice in the field.
Students with autism develop their learning and thinking skills in unusual ways, not following a typical development pattern. However, they can learn well with appropriate, systematic, and individualized teaching practices.
As clinicians we see ourselves as facilitators of learning and it is our responsibility to create and maintain a learning environment where students are valued, motivated, encouraged, and supported for the most meaningful learning to take place.
Children with autism and other developmental disabilities have a right to an effective and individualized treatment to meet their unique needs.
