  • Sydney's School for Autism, located on the grounds of St. Patrick Church, provides services to children with autism and those with similar disorders.
  • It is the first school of its kind in Hillsborough County.
  • Each child's individualized program is based upon the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
  • ABA/AVB is a structured teaching program which relies on behavioral methods.
  • During all ABA/AVB sessions the therapist/student ratio is 1:1. ABA is based on behavioral research first published by B.F. Skinner in 1938 and later expanded upon by many others.
  • Years of research support the use of ABA/AVB for children with autism.
  • At Sydney's School for Autism, we recognized how important it is to integrate children with autism with the typical Pre-School children on our campus (formerly Great Beginnings Pre-School).
  • Sydney's School accepts pre-school, VPK, Kindergarten and 1st Grade students.
