Clinic Based Services
Reach clinic based services provide special education and behavior analytic (ABA Therapy) services to students with autism between the ages of 3 and 21. We offer small group as well as 1:1 services. The clinic is open year round and follows a traditional school calendar with classes held Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. We also offer a 5 week summer session.
Evidence based instructional practices and data driven decision making are used
to ensure each student receives high quality programming. The primary objective of the program is to ensure that all students receive innovative, expert level services so that they may reach their full potential in all aspects of
learning and daily life.
All educational and behavioral programs are designed and overseen by an experienced Intervention Specialist and/or Behavior Analyst. Direct instruction is delivered with the assistance of an experienced Teaching Aide. All Teaching Aides receive coursework to become Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT's) when they begin working at Reach. The RBT coursework and certification process is governed by the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB).
Our Clinic enrolls students with a wide range of instructional and behavioral needs. This means that we utilize a variety of instruction materials and curriculum to meet the needs of each learner. Every student at Reach has a unique treatment plan and curriculum program designed to meet their individual learning/behavioral needs.
Assessment of Progress
Reach utilizes the following Assessments to guide instructional decisions. Ongoing data collection is utilized to measure progress on behavioral and learning objectives. Progress reports are provided quarterly to families.
Basic Language and Learning Skills (ABLLS)
Assessment of Functional Living Skills (AFLS)
Essential For Living
Vineland-3 Adaptive Behavior Scales
Behavior Support Services
The Behavior Analyst works closely with teaching staff to promote skill development and to reduce challenging behaviors experienced by our students. Functional Behavioral Assessments (FBAs) are used to develop Behavior Intervention Plans. We also work closely with outside agencies to ensure successful behavioral planning across the home and school settings. Additionally, all staff are trained in safe crisis management procedures. Reach is focused upon using proactive and positive intervention strategies to address behavior challenges.
Reach accepts students who display a wide variety of challenging behavior and no student will be turned away due to behavioral intervention needs. All students are assessed on a case by case basis and services are designed to address their unique needs.
