Welcome to the Pioneer Autism and Sensory Center
The 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 Classrooms."
State of the Art Programming
Education for students with ASDs has advanced tremendously in recent years, and PASC has advanced right along with it. Our program is based on the principals 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.
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 gage 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.
