Great Strides School
Great Strides School is a division of Great Strides Rehabilitation. We are a private school providing individualized education using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy in an educational setting. We believe in establishing an environment that allows learning opportunities throughout every aspect of a child’s school day. We also believe that all children have the right to an effective education that rests on a foundation of solid research and is monitored and evaluated on an ongoing and systematic basis

Our employees are made up of a variety of highly trained and educated individuals with various experiences working with individuals with special needs in a variety of settings. We encourage all staff to pursue their qualifications as a certified behavior analyst. Great Strides School Staff consists of four levels of qualified individuals:
A Typical Day
Our school maintains small classroom sizes with low student-to-teacher ratios which may range from 3:1 to 5:1 instruction. In addition, many of our children benefit from on one support within the classroom from behavior therapists to help each child actively participate throughout the day. Classrooms are assigned based on age, ability level, and goals being addressed. The school day combines functional academics, group learning, and individualized instruction. We utilize various types of curricula selected by our certified teachers to be appropriate for specific learning groups. We have monthly field trips, regular community outings, and holiday-themed events.
Great Strides Rehabilitation and Great Strides School work together as a team to provide the most effective and appropriate education for each child. We offer Applied Behavior Analysis, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Music Therapy during school hours or after school. This collaborative approach ensures consistency of interventions across settings.
