Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Programs

 

Classrooms for students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) provide a low student to teacher ratio using a variety of instructional strategies such as TEACCH, Picture Exchange System (PECs), sensory-motor integration and peer-to-peer support.  Curriculum includes a continuum from the Michigan Curriculum Framework to Michigan Model Curriculum for Supported Independence.  Inclusion in general education classes is a part of the educational program when determined appropriate.

 

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA-VB) Classrooms

Applied Behavior Analysis - Verbal Behavior (ABA-VB) classrooms are designed for preschool and young elementary aged students with ASD.  The goal of the ABA-VB program is to provide state-of-the-art instructional technology to help children quickly acquire the skills they need for future independent learning in environments where specialized teaching and individualized support can be reduced for eliminated.
