ABA Program for students in grades K-8
We began the 2018-2019 school year with two BCBAs on staff: Ashlea Krouse, LBA, BCBA, MEd & Alexis Gregory, LBA, BCBA, MEd. With their expertise and the dedication of the staff in our ABA program we are growing our current ABA classroom from 10 to 20 students for the 2019-2020 school year!
This program offers Evidenced based interventions utilizing principles of ABA, individualized assessments and behavior plans, collaboration between home, school, and the division, assistance with functional communication, data collection and analysis, and behavioral supports and strategies in the natural environment.
The new generation of teachers are hungry for training programs, supportive administration, and cohort styled groupings for their employment experience. We are beginning the process of making our new staff orientation process digital – in the format of videos – to enhance consistency and allow for intermittent re-training if necessary. We will begin a peer to peer orientation system for the 2019-2020 to enhance the new hire experience and meet the needs of the new employee demographics.
In addition, our staff have also taken time create videos within their classroom that showcase what techniques and processes are being used to help students on their case load be successful.
Our administrative team and board of directors have created a dynamic vocational program for high school students. We recognize that our older students need a sense of purpose, a sense of motivation, and job skills that are marketable in the surrounding communities. We are excited about all that has been accomplished during the 2018-2019 school year with our first round of VIP (Vocational Internship Program) students and we are even more thrilled about the opportunities that it will present for our high school students during the 2019-2020 school year.
