Our work is an ongoing process

We are always working the continued development and evolution of our innovative training model, founded on the belief that it should:

  1. focus on student strengths
  2. provide comprehensive training
  3. focus on educational processes from assessment to goal development
  4. provide for blending of strategies based in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and evidence-based practices
  5. offer hands-on work with students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
