Each day in the United States, millions of children go off to school, all with different strengths and weaknesses, abilities and needs. Over five million of these children have been identified as having a specific disability such as autism or a learning disability that necessitates some type of special instruction.
Autism affects 1 in 68 children and 1 in 42 boys. More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than cancer, diabetes, down syndrome, and AIDS combined, yet autism receives less than 5% of the research funding of many less prevalent childhood diseases. Although there is currently no medical detection or cure for autism, there is hope.
At The Victory Center, each child’s program is specially designed to meet his or her specific needs and to take into account individual strengths and weaknesses. Each child’s Individual Education Program (IEP) is based upon an in-depth assessment of the child.
These programs include language, social skills, health, adaptive behavior, early learning readiness, and life skills. In contrast to a home-based therapy program, The Victory Center provides continuous opportunity for facilitation of social skills that children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis often lack.
The Victory Center is an evidence-based school that uses evidence-based teaching and the gold standard approach of Applied Behavior Analysis, the scientific study of human behavior. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the application of the principles of learning and motivation as well as the procedures and technology derived from those principles to the solve problems of social significance.
The Victory Center began in June, 2000 as a realized dream of the parents of a child with autism and a volunteer Board of Directors as a full day, year-round school program. Today, we are a 6 classroom, 28 student program looking towards a bright future with a new school building on the horizon. Thank you for your help in achieving our dream.
