Multiple career opportunities within our Center for Autism and Developmental Disorders Preschool and K-12 Day Treatment Programs.
The Center for Autism and Developmental Disorders Preschool is a year-round, private, special-purpose preschool for children ages 3 to 5 with autism spectrum disorder or other developmental disabilities. The program utilizes a multi-disciplinary treatment team including BCBAs, SLPs, OTs, Special Educators and Educational Technicians. Children receive individualized instruction in communication, play, socialization, self-care, cognitive development, and motor skills utilizing the principles of applied behavior analysis.
The K-12 Day Treatment Program at the Center for Autism and Developmental Disorders serves children and adolescents 5-20 years old who are either stepping down from our hospital program or are referred from their local school setting.
