The Children’s Center for Communication

The Children’s Center for Communication (CCC) is a community of learners and their families, administrators, faculty, specialists and support staff who share a recognition that communication is the pivotal skill for life long learning and success.

CCC uses research-supported best educational practices, to create individualized educational services for each student and utilizes a systematic approach to communication which includes the principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) and other methodologies. Our students are provided with opportunities for small group instruction, 1:1 teaching with direct instruction or Discrete Trial Teaching (DTT). Individual programming is supplemented with consultation as well as direct 1:1 and group therapeutic services provided by CCC skilled Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs), Occupational Therapists (OTs), Physical Therapists (PTs), Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) and School Counselor. CCC offers a carefully combined therapeutic and learning schedule. It is designed to offer students not only an excellent education, but a well-rounded school experience.

Our Students have a diverse range of diagnoses including: developmental, physical, and/or cognitive delays, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, Cerebral Palsy, and/or other communication disorders. A strength-based approach frames individualized teaching of communication, academics, social and community/vocational skills all within a communication-accessible environment, rich in visual supports and sensory regulation opportunities.

CCC recognizes the critical importance of respecting and teaching functional communication in the management of behaviors that may often be challenging. CCC emphasizes communication in the development of all positive behavioral support plans.
