Focus on Skill Development
Autism is a complex neurobiological disorder that can affect every realm of a child's development. It is generally characterized by significant impairments in language, communication, social relatedness and academic skills, as well as the presence of challenging behaviors that can interfere not only with learning but also with normal functioning within the family and the community. A diagnosis of autism can give rise to significant and difficult challenges for the child, his or her family, educators and other caregivers, as well as deep concern about the future. Research has indicated, however, that the science of Applied Behavior Analysis can help us in meeting the challenges posed by this unique disorder. The proper implementation of such strategies can result in a greatly improved prognosis for the quality of life for the individual with autism and his or her family.
Our school utilizes the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) in all aspects of programming.
The Mosaic School
is dedicated to improving
the lives of individuals with autism and their families.
