  • Class Overview

  • Classroom 11

    Room 11 is a school-age, self-contained classroom ranging from Kindergarten to Grade 2. We utilize techniques of Applied Behavior Analysis (individual visual schedules, discrete trial training, 3-step compliance, forward and backward chaining and task analysis) throughout our school day to assist in the acquisition and generalization of academic and social skills. Other curriculum strategies such as Handwriting Without Tears and Touch Math, as well as music and arts and crafts are infused to help enhance and individualize our program.

    • Noah is nearly independent in dressing and toileting and so much more. Hope is priceless and what others took away from us in an already devastating situation, Crossroads Center for Children teachers and administrators gave back two-fold.
