The You and Me School opened its doors in 1992, as a natural outgrowth of our very successful Early Intervention Program for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. The You and Me School utilizes the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis within a natural environment, emphasizing language-based and sensory strategies.
Classroom teams meet on a weekly basis to discuss student progress, concerns and behavioral needs. All teachers, teacher assistant's and related service staff participate in ongoing continuing education which includes both internal and external workshops. Our team includes:
* Special Educators
* Speech and language pathologists
* Social Workers
* Board Certified Behavior Analyst
* Home-School Liaison
Our classrooms provide instruction based on applied behavior analysis utilizing discrete trial, activity-based instruction and incidental teaching. Classrooms are equipped with IPads for each student.
Students are served from preschool through 8th grade.
Throughout the program we closely monitor progress. Family members, school staff and child study teams members all participate in student assessment and in creating individualized educational plans.
