Center-Based Program

Our center-based program for 2-5-year-olds is up and running and we are close to capacity – only a couple of spots are left open. Children attend the program at our Kent Office for 3 to 6 hours each day (dependent upon need and approval). We have designed the center-based program to improve learning outcomes for our students and their families. Our therapists, guided by the program team (including parents and a BCBA), engage in a variety of evidence-based practices to meet student’s individual needs. The use of pivotal response treatment, incidental teaching, structured teaching techniques, embedded instruction, social skills instruction, and discrete trial training are all utilized to meet the individual needs of the child.
