Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is based on the science of learning. Years of research support the effectiveness of ABA when teaching a wide range of behaviors to children with developmental disabilities.
Our school day begins at 7:30 and ends at 3:30. We are able to accommodate half days or extended days on a case by case basis. Each student is assigned a therapist who is responsible for instruction across various activities we have planned throughout the day. Teaching occurs in both 1:1 and group formats.
Most of our students’ services are covered through a private health insurance plan. The Empower School will work with your insurance company to ensure that maximum funding is obtained. We also take private pay.
During your child’s school day, numerous opportunities for social interaction occur. Students participate in group circle time, structured recess, special classes (e.g. art, P.E., music), etc everyday.
At Empower School, we are highly selective in our hiring process. All of our employees have prior experience working with children with developmental disabilities in some capacity. Many of us are either completing or have completed the coursework and experience requirements necessary to sit for the BCBA-level exam and certification.
