Offering an Autism Program and
Behavioral Support Program

Program Information Make A Referral Make A Gift

The Children’s Center provides an Autism Program and Behavioral Support Program in all locations.

Autism Program

The program provides specialized services to young children ages 3-5 diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder in a specialized setting overseen by a Board Certified Behavioral Analyst (BCBA). Based on the principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) and the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM), the one-on-one direct care staff uses discrete trials and data collection to inform treatment and create programs. The goal is to increase independence in behavioral, social, and functional living skills in order for these children to become successful in an inclusive early education classroom and/or public school setting.

Behavioral Support Program

The program serves children ages 3-5 with a mental health diagnosis in a highly structured setting with a high child to staff ratio and overseen by a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. The various classrooms focus on specific skills related to emotional regulation, behavioral management, and interpersonal skills in order to provide children with the opportunity to increase independence and ultimately transition to an inclusive early education classroom and/or public school setting.
