ACES Behavior Services and Autism Programs (BSAP) offers a variety of programs which serve students with autism and other learning disorders.

The Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EIBI) Program, housed at ACES Village School in North Haven, is designed for young children and utilizes a highly structured approach to teaching based in the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

The Science-Based Approaches to Independence and Life Skills (SAILS) program is housed at our new Center for Autism Spectrum and Developmental Disorders in Northford. This program is also based in the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and delivers high quality, evidence-based educational services to adolescents and young adults with autism and related developmental disorders. Speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, music therapy and social work services contribute to the transdisciplinary nature of the program. Each educational team is co-led by a state-certified Special Education teacher and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). The program focuses on teaching skills fundamental to increasing a student’s independent functioning within society.

BSAP also provides behavioral consultation to school districts, staff and parent training, and in-home programs for students with autism and related disorders.
