Spectrum Sunday Play Group in Brooklyn

Jill has tried this out with her boys (one on the spectrum and
another not), and gives it a good review. Not all of the programming is spectrum focused, but the Sunday play group is, and they will apparently be a SNACK expansion site in fall 2007.

New ABA School in Manhattan

Here's their announcement. Word from parents who have inquired is that they plan to have 30 pupils, and they will be Carter funded, with an estimated tuition of $90K. I'm thrilled to learn of new seats offering what sounds like a quality ABA program, but whew is that a big ticket.

Manhattan Childrens Center
Opening its Manhattan Campus September 2007

Providing services for children with autism and pervasive developmental disorders.

The Children’s Center’s Upper West Side campus will provide scientifically based world class treatment and education to children ages 3 to 12 utilizing the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

The program’s Interdisciplinary Model will incorporate ABA, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy as well as natural environment training and family support.

The Children's Center is a partner in research and service activities with Columbia University, Teachers College faculty and students.

Program information may be obtained by contacting Abigail Szoszun-Weiss, Director of Admissions at 347-578-3442.

The Children’s Center’s Brooklyn Campus (www.schoolworksonline.org) was established in 1996 to provide educational and therapeutic services to children with developmental delays including children diagnosed with PDD and Autism. Over the years of its existence, The Children's Center has served over 1,500 children and employed over 200 professionals in its Interdisciplinary Model. It is this level of front line experience that gives The Children's Center its expertise in delivering quality services to the right children at the right time by the right people.
