Abi’s Place is a non-profit private school specifically designed to meet the learning and behavioral needs of exceptional children, ages 3-16, with moderate to severe challenges. Our teachers utilize ABA techniques and positive reinforcements while administering a thematic based curriculum designed to teach children language and communication skills, as well as functional life skills.
Abi’s Place utilizes four curriculums to meet each child’s skill set: Thematic Program, ABLLS, Core Curriculum, and TEACCH.
Children are placed in classrooms based on their present level of performance
VE Classrooms: Servicing children, who are developing skills on Pre-academics including labeling, sequencing, following directions, and routines.
Cluster Classrooms: Servicing children who have a language delay who would benefit from a lower ratio at this time to help bridge the gaps in skills while building on academics.
Play-skills Classrooms: Servicing children who need help learning through imitation and exploring their environment while introducing some pre-academics.
Medically Complex Classrooms: Servicing children who are working on basic life skills as well as learning to explore their environment, to use assistive technology and build some independence.
Transition Classrooms: Servicing teens who are working heavily on vocational and daily living skills to prepare them for more independence.
Each child is administered a personalized education plan (PEP) which is used to set individualized educational goals. Parental input is encouraged during the goal setting process in order to incorporate goals designed to maximize their child’s independence at home. Detailed data is taken daily and tracked weekly in order to identify necessary information to ensure individualized instruction is facilitating the skills needed for goal attainment. The classroom ratios are low to allow each child to receive individualized attention needed to attain their goals.
Occupational, Physical and Speech Therapists are in the facility and available for students and the community ages 0-18 needing skilled therapeutic services on an out-patient basis.
