Step By Step Academy offers a unique program that is a transitional education-based classroom driven by the client’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) with the goal of reintegrating the consumer back into his/her public school environment.
This program serves school aged persons and is directed by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst® (BCBA®), Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst® (BCaBA®), and an Intervention Specialist or a Special Education Teacher.
Assessment tools include both education and skillsbased assessments such as the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS), Test of Reading Comprehension (TORC), KeyMath3™, the Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills® (ABLLS®), and the Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program® (VB-MAPP®). Additional assessment of executive functions, social skills, reading, math, theory of mind, and other skills are also conducted. All are used to determine appropriate treatment plans for individualized education linked to the Ohio Academic Standards.
While achieving academic success for each consumer, this program also focuses on building social skills, peer relationships, self-monitoring ability, and more to ensure a successful transition back into the school system.
