    Programs that offer therapeutic interventions for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders that are based on the theory of applied behavior analysis that behavior rewarded is more likely to be repeated than behavior ignored. The therapy is designed to teach skills, from basic ones such as sleeping and dressing to more involved ones such as social interaction, but is also used to correct inappropriate repetitive, aggressive and/or dangerous behaviors that are associated with autism. Skills are broken down into small steps and taught one simple step at a time. When a task has been successfully completed, a reward is offered, reinforcing the behavior or task. Also available are intensive ABA programs in which children and adults with autism may work for 30 to 40 hours a week, one-on-one with a trained professional.

    Mission for Educating Children With Autism - Preparing Adolescents for Adult Life (PAAL) - Herrs LanePreparing Adolescents with Autism for Adult Life (PAAL) began operations in September of 2006. PAAL is a specialty secondary educational program for adolescents with moderate to severe autism between the ages of 14 - 21. This innovative program has established a professional collaboration between the educational system, families, and the community at large to develop a "liaison" for the student post age 21. PAAL will add two new divisions in November 2008 and January 2009 as well as add case management services. The program then seeks to identify all of the skills necessary to be mastered in order to make that vision a reality. To that end, the program seeks to utilize the community as its classroom, and citizens of the community and community opportunities as the educational materials. The program is entirely community-based so that the underlying fundamental principles of transition and integration into the community for adult life are supported. Best practices indicate that individuals with autism learn better in the naturally occurring environment.
