ABOUT THE PROGRAM:

Children from early intervention to high school are in classrooms with teachers, therapists, and instructional support staff. The program is licensed as both a Private academic special education school and a partial hospital program. Services include: speech and language therapy, occupational therapy consultation, IEP services and psychiatric services under the direction of a Board Certified Psychiatrist.

PROGRAM PRINCIPLES:

PLEA’s School Based Partial Program operates based on principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. Sticking close to this foundation allows PLEA to utilize evidence based approaches to promote educational and behavioral progress. Treatment and education are delivered in collaboration with families and integrated teams. PLEA staff respect that the learner knows best and the total treatment package is individualized around a child’s unique set of strengths and needs.

Included in the treatment is an emphasis on Wellness training both for the physical and emotional well being of the child.

Our son was diagnosed as autistic last year. Needless to say, the impact of that diagnosis on our lives was and still is a daily reminder of how precious life is…thank you seems to be a phrase too often forgotten or merely overlooked these days. So we would like to convey a thank you that goes far beyond words for making our son’s first year of school a great one. And for allowing us to share the experience of seeing for ourselves that our son is capable of doing many wonderful things that will lead to open many new doors for him.”
