The Center for Learning at CCSN

Supporting the academic skills necessary for children with autism spectrum disorders to thrive in their educational settings

We aim to make our special needs educational programs accessible to all students

CCSN provides academic interventions, consultation, and training to improve conceptual and applied understanding of reading comprehension and other complex academic skills to serve all students better. Our focused approach uses explicit instruction to enhance students' learning skills.

The Center for Learning at CCSN provides individualized educational evaluation and intervention services tailored to the learning needs of children with ASD and other complex developmental disabilities. We offer evidence-based interventions utilizing psychological and applied behavior analysis (ABA) methodologies to address issues relating to reading comprehension, decoding, written expression, and mathematics.

Many students with Autism Spectrum Disorders have difficulties with reading comprehension. We can help.

Reading interventions that are specifically tailored to students with developmental disabilities, including Autism, are critical, given the importance of reading to both academic success and successful life in the community.

The Summer Reading Clinic at CCSN is an intensive 4-week one-to-one reading program designed to address your student’s individual reading needs. Our program focuses on helping students understand what they read and connect it to knowledge that they already have.

CCSN provides individual case consultation to build the capacity of school teams to address their student’s academic deficits.
Case consultation can be provided to teachers on:

  • Implementing skill development programs.
  • Generalizing acquired skills to the regular education curriculum.
  • Developing IEP goals and objectives specific to the student’s needs informed by evidence-based interventions.

Our clinical team provides a range of talks, in-service trainings, and workshops for parents and educators regarding reading and reading comprehension skill development with an emphasis on supporting the needs of learners with ASD and other learning challenges.
