question and answers
CentrePoint Academy educational programs serve students from pre-K up to age 22.
What is Applied Behavioral Health (ABA)?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy focuses on improving specific behaviors such as social skills, behavior reduction, and academics, as well as adaptive learning skills and independent functioning.
ABA is effective for children and adolescents with emotional/behavioral disorders, and it has been shown that consistent ABA can significantly improve behaviors and social skills in the classroom, at home and in the community. CentrePoint Academy educational programs are grounded in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) practices and have integrated mental health supports.
Can CentrePoint Academy educational programs accommodate remote and virtual learning
