What is the Transition Academy?

The Transition Academy is a clinical setting utilizing Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) principles to prepare children with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities for the general education program. Our board-certified behaviour analysts lead specialized ABA therapy sessions, focusing on social skills, communication skills, and academic readiness. Through tailored treatment plans and positive reinforcement techniques, we help build desired behaviours and the acquisition of new skills for your child, all while reducing challenging behaviours.

The Transition Academy empowers children to succeed in academic and social environments with a collaborative approach focused on personalized therapy programs. Contact us to learn more about our ABA services and how we can support your child’s developmental journey.

Who will be working with my child?

In the classroom, a dedicated teacher and one to two educational assistants (depending on class size and need) work together to support each child’s development. This collaborative effort ensures children with autism and other developmental disabilities receive specialized support tailored to their needs.

The teacher is responsible for implementing the curriculum, much like a traditional teacher in a public school setting. Collaborating closely with the educational assistant, the teacher integrates individualized classroom and social skills goals into lesson plans, applying Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) principles throughout. For example, if your child is learning to raise their hand and has a target that includes a specific question, the teacher will include the target in their lesson plans.

The educational assistant provides invaluable support to the teacher and each child in accomplishing their daily tasks and goals. Whether a child requires prompts to achieve a target or assistance with daily work, the educational assistant can provide guidance and support, implementing ABA therapy techniques as needed.

Together, they collaborate with a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) as a cohesive team to ensure each child reaches their full daily potential. This collaborative approach fosters a supportive learning environment where children can build their academic skills and thrive socially and emotionally, setting them up for success in the general education program.
