CASE provides pro-active strategies, curriculum, and environmental design that target the academic, communication and behavioral needs for students on the autism spectrum. As the needs of students varies, the level and type of support varies as well.

CASE facilitators are expert teachers who are Certified BCBAs or trained in behavioral analysis that work with individual students as well as classroom teams to develop appropriate instructional techniques and programming based a student’s individualized needs. Through evaluation, data collection/progress monitoring, observations, CASE facilitators identify the specific skills a student needs in order to improve outcomes and access the general education curriculum. CASE facilitators are available to provide training/coaching in the areas of instruction, assessment (VB-MAPP), autism awareness, and evidence based strategies. CASE facilitators are trained in assessing the environment and supports (visual supports, schedule, etc.) to increase independence. They work with staff to increase student skill development and generalize skills in natural environments.

CASE also provides services to students, families and districts to assist with transitioning students between school buildings and between varied instructional environments. Teachers who have specific experience and training in working with students on the autism spectrum are provided so all students have access to expert teachers and appropriate classroom instruction with the cooperative boundaries.
