The CONNECTIONS Program
The CONNECTIONS program is designed to teach children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder how to make and keep friends as well as how to participate in a classroom setting. Daily schedules are individualized to each child’s unique learning profile. Transitions are also carefully introduced throughout the day as each child learns to follow a teacher directed schedule. Teaching programs focus on strengthening each child’s communication skills with peers. Direct social skill instruction may be delivered 1:1, in a pair or in a small group setting. Learning to cooperatively play and participate in a small group setting is an essential step toward preparing each child for success in a private/public school setting. A full time Board Certified Behavior Analyst is on site to ensure data based decisions are made regarding teaching procedures and programs.
