(ABLE) ACADEMIC AND BEHAVIOR LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

The Academic and Behavior Learning Environment (ABLE) program is an intensive educational program for students who are preschool through 8th grade with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other developmental disorders that require highly structured and individualized intervention for the development of functional communication skills and socially appropriate behaviors.  

 

The program has a lower staff to student ratio than is available in less restrictive environments and a smaller class size. Interpersonal and learning supports are developed and used to engage the student actively and productively in meaningful and purposeful routines and activities. Individual progress and active participation is regularly measured and documented to determine effectiveness of interventions or the need for adjustments to the child’s program. 

The ABLE Program provides a higher degree of structure and support for those students who have demonstrated a need for a more restrictive educational placement in order to make adequate yearly progress.
