Our Small World Adventurers
Our Small World Adventurers
Welcome to our small family! Our ABA early childhood Montessori-like program fosters fun, safe and nurturing social and play based learning through specially designed learning hands on and real-world encounters, multi-sensory experiences, free and structured activities in both individual and group settings.
Our Small World Adventurers have the opportunity to grow skills in our Half Day Morning or Mid-Afternoon program where our knowledgeable and caring team guide, assess and enrich their learning.
Why only a Half Day?
Research shows that early and intensive intervention is one of the most effective strategies for improving the language, social and adaptive functioning skill delays associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
BUT... sometimes it is best for the Learner to be in a 1/2 day preschool program or they may have other therapies or parent commitments that may conflict with a full day program. Our 1/2 day options allows parents choices in their child's programming.
Our Focus is to expand language, social/play skill, build peers, support school readiness, daily routines and work on individual goals through combine learning experiences and structured play in a fun, safe, and nurturing environment.
We call this providing ABA with a heart.
Our Goal is to make sure each child is happy, thriving, expanding their skills and building friendships. We do ABA the Social-Play Way!
Our Parents are integral part of our team! Parent meet weekly with our BCBA to learn, grow and share together. Through these meeting we hope to support and coach parents to feel more confident through concept learning, problem solving, success sharing and practice in supporting and help their child grow and learn.
Parent/Child Social Time
Let's play together - as part of our programming, we host one time a month for the parent(s) and child to come together with other Small World Friends and parents to play in our gym. The BCBA will be there to support and coach parents to assist with social interactions in a more natural way and is one of your weekly parent training sessions.
