The philosophy of NJ Center for Autism is that every child CAN learn. Learning starts with what motivates and interests the child. We place strong emphasis on joint attention and communication, and promote them by engaging the child in the activity and play of their choosing. A solid foundation of basic learning skills is best achieved through positive reinforcement. Once a proper foundation has been established, we can then address more complex and challenging behaviors.
Applied Behavior Analysis. Our data based curriculum emphasizes teaching skills that a child would need in order to effectively interact and communicate with others. Success in the areas of learning readiness skills, engaging appropriately with other (joint attention), communicating wants and needs and expanding on play behaviors, will all lead to improving child’s life.
Learning takes place in our child-friendly environment that is safe and stimulating. Parents are invited to observe and participate in their child’s learning. Our committed staff and families work together as a team to achieve the highest potential and success for our children.
All family members are encouraged to join in the effort to promote the child’s growth. We endeavor to empower parents by teaching them how to analyze their child’s behavior, and coach the parents on strategies that will result in positive changes.
We also incorporate regular home visits to facilitate carry over and to promote generalization of acquired skills.
