Great Beginnings & Sydneys Autistic School
5.00 (1 review)
- 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.

Dear Autistic School How do you do? I am Yuji Umenaga, a professor of Waseda University in Japan. I have a plan to visit Sydney between February 12th to 16th to learn about some support strategies for children and adults with ASD with 7 students. They study the psychology of education, especially the TEACCH Autism Program, which is the famous program being developed at UNC (University of North Carolina) of the United States. Some of them will be teachers at special schools, others will be clinical psychologists for children with developmental disorders including ASD. Furthermore, we have some students who are interested in vocational rehabilitation for employees with ASD. So, we would like to visit your school to learn your strategies for children with ASD or developmental disorders. Could you please tell us a day we can visit between February 13th, 14th and 15th ,if it is possible? Thank you.
