Under the guidance of our certified special education teachers. EASTCONN Autism Program Instructors provide 1:1 support with children with autism and related disabilities. Our instructors have extensive experience with children with autism spectrum disorders or significant behavioral needs and are skilled in the application of applied behavior analysis. All instructors hold a bachelors degree with a concentration in child development or related field. Our instructors are integral members of our multidisciplinary team and work with several students to support generalization and maintenance of a variety of skills.

The EASTCONN Autism Program (EAP), located in Columbia, CT, provides a regionally based, comprehensive, integrated service program for students with autism and other low-incidence disabilities in grades PreK-12. The program is characterized by a structured, intensive, individualized approach to instruction based on the principles of applied behavioral analysis (ABA). We emphasize systematic teaching to promote learning and generalization and utilize on-going evidence-based assessment, intervention, and progress monitoring to guide instruction in all areas of development.
