Crossroads School is a provider of home-based services for children and young adults with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities. We use Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), a science-based approach to treatment, to provide the highest quality of services for clients. Our home-based and community-based services are designed to promote the generalization and maintenance of skills taught in school.
The staff members at Crossroads include Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) who have a Master’s degree (or higher) in behavior analysis, psychology, education, or similar field. All BCBAs have completed coursework, supervised field experience, and a competency-based examination. For the provision of direct therapy, Crossroads employs bachelors-level ABA Counselors who work under the supervision of the BCBAs.
Our mission is to provide a comprehensive home-based program to teach important life skills to our students. We are dedicated to helping students acquire the academic, social, vocational, and life skills necessary to achieve their highest possible level of independence as adults. We believe that all students have a fundamental right to an education that promotes the greatest degree of personal independence.
Personal independence for each individual is achieved through an educational partnership between school, community, and family. The goal of our Home-Based Services is to provide students and families opportunities to use the principles and techniques of Applied Behavior Analysis in the home and community settings. Our Home-Based service program uses a parent training model in which staff members teach parents (and family members) how to more effectively teach their child and manage challenging behavior in the home. As such, we expect parents and family members to play an active role in home services.
Crossroads provides a large variety of home-based and community-based services guided by the principles of ABA. These include:
• Parent training
• Assessment and treatment of challenging behavior
• Teaching activities of daily living (ADLs)
• Teaching self-help skills
• Toilet training
• Social skills training
• Teaching appropriate play and leisure skills
• Assessment and treatment of sleep problems
• Generalization and maintenance of academic skills
