Here are a few of the teaching methods used in our district:
ABA - Applied Behavior Analysis is based on positive reinforcement and other principles to build communication, play, social, academic, self-care, work and community living skills and to reduce problem behaviors in learners with autism of all ages.
PECS - Picture Exchange Communication System is a communication technique where students with little or no verbal ability learn to communicate using picture cards. They use these pictures to communicate a desire, observation or feeling.
* A decision regarding the specific approach that is used with a student is based on the student’s individual needs.
