Imagine a place where learners with special needs are welcomed with smiles and enthusiasm. Their parents are shown compassion and understanding, while their children are encouraged to learn, laugh, make friends, and have fun! Our Special Place is a non- profit organization. We are dedicated to enriching the lives of children with special needs by providing services in a nurturing and therapeutic environment.
At Our Special Place we focus on building functional communication skills, improving peer to peer interactions, reducing problem behaviors and teaching socially appropriate responses. Instructional methods are evidenced based and derived from the field of Applied Behavior Analysis. Social skills are taught utilizing behavior skills training (BST), which includes instruction, modeling, role play and feedback. Generalization of these skills are encouraged through game playing, cooking, arts & crafts, music & movement and science. Weekly sessions build upon on prior lessons to reinforce previously learned material while providing opportunities to acquire new skills.
