First Children’s STRIVE Autism Centers offer applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy and assessments for children in a fun and enriching environment!  We have daytime and after school programs in our East Windsor and Fanwood centers and an after school program in our Cherry Hill center.  The Fanwood center incorporates an integrated model with our inclusive child care center, A Special Place.   For children with special needs, there are many benefits to an integrated learning environment. Regardless of their ability level, kids learn from one another. In an integrated classroom, children with special needs have the opportunity to learn and play among peer models, who demonstrate the skills that the teachers and therapists are trying to teach. Being an equal member of a classroom community provides many important social benefits including increased self-esteem and the formation of friendships. For children with typical abilities, benefits of an integrated classroom include learning tolerance, developing empathy, and gaining an appreciation for diversity.
