Make a Difference in the Education of Children with Autism
Our teaching framework embeds learning into play and daily routines. We incorporate each student’s motivation and create supportive structures to ensure they reach their academic, social and life goals.
About In STEPPS Academy
In STEPPS Academy is a non-profit private school for children with Autism and similar needs. We understand your child has specific interests, strengths, and developmental needs, so we don’t use a one-size-fits-all approach. Our program is built on a foundation of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and play-based Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT), creating supportive classrooms that encourage natural interactions and an individualized motivating environment so that each child can feel comfortable and confident learning academic and social skills. We offer two classroom tracks. Our high-support classroom track has a 1:1-2:1 ratio, focusing on communication, daily living skills, and/or specific behavior support needs. Our medium-support classroom track can accommodate students up to a 5:1 ratio following a more traditional class structure. All students have individualized academic programs tailored to their needs and abilities, with goals measured and based on their personal accomplishments. In STEPPS Academy is a year-round school with minimal time off to ensure maximum consistency for our students.
