Autism Programming Services


he development of programs and continuum of services to be offered to students identified as having an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) within the public school setting, requires a wide variety of educational approaches and methodologies. The special programming developed to educate students includes strategies from some of the more research- based methodologies (ABA, TEACCH, PECS, etc.). This framework of understanding of how children with ASD learn is consistent with the National Academy of Science (NAS) 2001 report which recommends "multiple methodologies" for programming for students with autism and will ensure individual programming with a focus on a student's Individual Educational Plan (IEP) and how goals and objectives will be carried out (NRC, 2001). The psychologists at Connecticut Behavioral Health, LLC, approach teaching children with ASD from a multi-intervention approach with a behavioral emphasis. We believe in a continuum of services that make up a Multi-Intervention Teaching Approach (MITA) for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
