Improving the academic skills necessary for children with ASD and related neurodevelopmental disorders to thrive in their educational settings
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 Academic Support Services at CCSN provide 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.
