Crossroads Center for Children serves children with a diagnosis within the Pervasive Development Disorder and Autism spectrum, and their families.
Our goal is to enhance all children's lives by teaching the necessary skills for them to participate in a meaningful way in their home, school, and community.
Crossroads Center for Children utilizes Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) as the treatment philosophy and approach to autism intervention.
Noted as the only method for which empirical research has validated success, procedures based on ABA are used to increase skills across all areas of development.
The school provides a continuum of services across intensity and level of integration, resulting in the most effective mix of services to meet the individual needs of the child.
Services range from group instruction to individual therapy.
These services can be provided in a variety of settings, ranging from segregated to fully-integrated classrooms.
