The goal of Applied Behavior Analysis is to bring behaviors under the control of carefully selected stimuli such that a learner can display targeted behaviors across instructors and environments. This is demonstrated by our exclusive three tier method of skill acquisition, in addition to employing effective teaching strategies and probing current skills listed as mastered.
The Clinical Classroom model offers learners the opportunity to experience intensive language, academic, social and self-help skills training in a unique classroom setting that affords each learner both 1:1 and small group opportunities. Individual learner objectives and targeted skills are instructed and integrated during every activity. Opportunities are presented for immediate practice of newly acquired skills with peers in a carefully designed educational setting, supporting your child to apply skills learned in a 1:1 fashion in small groups. Because research demonstrates that people learn best when they are motivated, the teaching procedures employed offer high rates of reinforcement and materials are carefully selected to increase the motivation of each learner to acquire new skills.
All individual learner programs and intensive learning activities are designed and implemented by Board Certified Behavior Analysts, Applied Behavior Clinicians, Certified Teachers and a Speech Language Pathologist. Data is maintained on specific skill behaviors each day; parents receive daily reports to indicate their child’s performance in each of the learning zones as well as quarterly progress reports.
The clinical classroom is available for children ages 2-12 and is a McKay approved school program for children residing in the state of Florida.
