The Recreational Education Center has after school programs, weekend/holiday programs, and a summer camp that works with children who would benefit from Applied Behavior Analysis therapy. Many of these children are autistic, but no diagnosis is required. The Afterschool program focuses on academic, play, social, communication, and daily living skills. All children who attend have an initial assessment, which helps to determine their treatment plan. Many insurances will cover ABA, and therefore cover some/all of this program. If not, they also will accept private pay.
