In STEPPS Academy is a nonprofit, private prep school designed to meet the educational and therapeutic needs of children on the autism spectrum. Based on In STEPPS' successful therapy model, we excel in using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) to create supportive and fun learning environments that will prepare your child for success.
We understand your child has specific interests, strengths and development needs -- so we don't use a one-size-fits-all approach. Our classes encourage natural interaction and play as the foundation for learning, so children can feel comfortable and confident learning academic and social skills. And programs are tailored to the individual needs and abilities of your child, with goals measured based on their personal accomplishments.
As certified therapists, our credentialed teachers are experienced in teaching children with autism. They are skilled in using positive intervention to recognize challenging behavior and reinforce good social skills. The entire In STEPPS' team is dedicated to creating a highly supportive and fun learning environment in which your child will grow and thrive. And for you, the parents, we are here to help you through every step of the process.
