Our Mission and Educational Philosophy

Mission

Realizing Children’s Strengths (RCS) Learning Center is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide the highest quality of individualized behavioral and educational services for children with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities. We believe that every child has unique skills and we are dedicated to helping each child develop these skills and reach their full potential.

RCS  Learning Center accepts students of any race, color, religious affiliation, and national or ethnic origin. Admitted students are afforded all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded, or made available, to students currently attending RCS Learning Center. RCS does not discriminate against students who qualify under the criteria of the school’s admissions policies in admission, administration of educational policies or in the delivery of programmatic and therapeutic services of any school administered program.

Educational Philosophy

RCS Learning Center is committed to creating a school wide environment that exceeds the standards for teaching students with Autism effectively. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the major treatment methodology, with an emphasis on the Verbal Behavior Model for teaching communication and language skills. Our team of expert clinicians works diligently to create individualized curriculum and teaching procedures that fit each child’s specific learning style. Initial programming is based on assessment, baseline, current information, data analysis, preferences, and learning history. Ongoing evaluation of curriculum and teaching procedures occurs through direct observation, data collection and analysis, and weekly rotation meetings to ensure that all students receive the most effective programming possible. Instruction is provided across a variety of environments and therapists in order to promote generalization of skills from the school environment to home and community settings.
