Our team collaborates on a daily basis to develop and implement assessment-driven programming for students with diverse needs. We work together with districts and families to identify priorities for instruction and systematically implement programs across providers and settings to improve student outcomes. We have a variety of specialists and educators:
Use of Discrete Trial Instruction (DTI) to develop individualized programs aimed at improving communication, early learning/academic, self-help and other functional skills.
Emphasis on proactive strategies to shape positive behaviors and build functional skills.
Commitment to a strong family-school partnership including daily communication with families and collaboration to support generalization of skills in the home and surrounding community.
Data-driven decision making through intensive, on-going progress monitoring of techniques and strategies implemented across providers and settings.
The EASTCONN Autism Program (EAP), located in Columbia, CT, provides a regionally based, comprehensive, integrated service program for students with autism and other low-incidence disabilities in grades PreK-12. The program is characterized by a structured, intensive, individualized approach to instruction based on the principles of applied behavioral analysis (ABA). We emphasize systematic teaching to promote learning and generalization and utilize on-going evidence-based assessment, intervention, and progress monitoring to guide instruction in all areas of development.
