At EPIC, we focus on independence over perfection. With a 1:1 student-teacher ratio, we develop applied skills so students can better integrate into society as adults. EPIC teachers and staff members shift the conversation away from what people with autism can’t do towards all they can do with the right intervention and support.
The EPIC School relies on the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to provide our students and their families with the most effective educational intervention possible. While success in our classroom is to be expected, the real test of our effectiveness is how well each student does outside of his or her classroom. We focus our instruction on those skills with the greatest potential for use by each student, so they overcome obstacles and see success at home or in the community.
The “Educational Partnership” that makes us EPIC is not always easy, but it’s always worthwhile.
