Communication Academics Behavior Social Skills 

The CABS program provides intensive support and instruction in the areas of communication, academics, behavior and social skills to students with characteristics of Autism in a self-contained environment.  

Our goal for the CABS program is to gradually reduce the level of support required allowing greater participation in an inclusive General Education setting based on student SUCCESS. 


Communication is addressed in all settings using a variety of methods, including alternative communication devices, picture symbols, sign-language, and verbal and receptive expression.

Academics are addressed in all settings depending upon individual needs.   Supportive and supplemental programs are implemented as needed.

Behavior is addressed in all areas with emphasis on behavior in the General Education setting. Reinforcements, visual supports, sensory and positive behavior supports are implemented on an individual basis as well as principles from Applied Behavior Analysis.

Social Skills are addressed in all settings with specific training implemented through group or individual sessions using a Social Skills curriculum and TeachTown.
