premier educational program for students with autism spectrum disorders
(ASD) in Southern New Jersey. We are proud to offer state-of-the art,
evidenced-based instructional services for students with ASD's, both in
our comprehensive Westampton Campus and at our satellite "Host
State of the Art Programming
for students with ASDs has advanced tremendously in recent years, and
PASC has advanced right along with it. Our program is based on the
principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), the single most
successful educational approach to ASDs that has been developed to date.
Our team includes Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) and Board
Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts (BCaBA) and specialists from the
fields of speech and language pathology, occupational therapy, physical
therapy, nursing, psychiatry, and psychology, presenting a level of
clinical expertise unmatched by any program in our area.
Evidence Based It's not enough to have an intensive and well-intentioned program--we need to know that it works.
At PASC, we exclusively use instructional approaches that have been
extensively researched and supported by empirical evidence. In addition,
we conduct formal and informal assessments of each student in order to
guage student improvement and monitor the effectiveness of the program
as a whole. Our comprehensive progress measures and data-gathering
practices are without equal.
Making a Difference Every Day Our
emphasis on adaptive behavior, communication, and vocational and
academic skills helps out students with ASDs reach greater levels of
functional independence in their homes and communities. We have the
great honor and privilege of witnessing our students' successes, both
large and small. If you would like to learn more about our program,

Students in Adrienne Arena's Host Classroom at Ridgeway. Computer help with Jen Bergman. They dyed, peeled, and made deviled eggs. Skills
they were working on were following simple recipes, language growth (cooking
language), working collaboratively, fine motor skills, etc. They also looked up
information on deviled eggs to see why it is called that!
