This September 2017, The Midland School will add an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) classroom for students with autism to the current program offerings. Midland’s ABA classroom will be staffed by an ABA trained teacher and instructional aide and will utilize specialized techniques and instruction for students with autism to encourage positive behavior change. Key features of the classroom will include a structured environment, a dedicated space for sensory breaks, and a focus on self-direction.
“In response to the needs of students, their families, and school districts, Midland decided to add ABA instruction to broaden and strengthen our array of programs and services for children and young adults with autism,” says Principal, Kristen Zizelmann. “Our goal is to improve all aspects of a student’s life – communication, social relationships, self-care, academics and employment—through the use of select ABA techniques.”
For questions about our new ABA classroom, more information, or to request a tour, please contact Kristen Zizelmann, Principal at 908-722-8222, extension 101.
