Imagine Academy is a unique program that integrates the two foremost models
Imagine Academy is a unique program that integrates the two foremost models, DIR®/ Floortime™ and ABA, to assess and develop individualized programming for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and other developmental challenges. Our program is groundbreaking in its ability to treat the whole child and not place limits on students due to methodology constraints.
The complete learning experience we offer is a collaborative one, which combines all proven therapies. At Imagine Academy, we have a 1:1 student/ professional ratio ensuring optimal treatment. The entire staff is closely familiar with each child’s program and the one-on-one support at Imagine is without equal.
Help children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental disabilities
Our mission at Imagine Academy is to help children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities achieve their social, emotional, physical and academic potential. Supporting the families of these children on their journey of development is also part of our central mission.
Imagine Academy is an established school for individuals ages 5-21, which utilizes a multidisciplinary approach on a 1:1 basis. This approach fuses two widely accepted methods, Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), and DIR®/Floortime™, in conjunction with research-driven sensory-motor, communication, and mental health techniques. In order to support each child’s continued progress at home, parent and family training is a cornerstone of the daily curriculum.
The founders believed an integrated approach would afford each student the best chance to reach his or her fullest potential
Imagine Academy was founded in 2005 by parents who were tired of rigid programming and outdated approaches. They united with a common goal- to open a school which would encompass all proven methodologies. The founders believed an integrated approach would afford each student the best chance to reach his or her fullest potential. The goal was to meet the unique needs of each student with a highly individualized program tailored to his/her specific needs.
Imagine has developed a uniquely integrative approach that combines creatively what are usually seen as the two leading competing methods Applied Behavioral Therapy and DIR/Floortime. Imagine offers the very best in Speech, Occupational and Music Therapy. The various components work beautifully together so that the whole is even greater than the sum of its individually excellent parts.”
“…They work together to understand our children’s learning style and needs, they have no agenda other than helping the kids learn and grow. Everyone shows competence and care that goes beyond the school day to give families the support needed at home and with everyday issues or emergencies.”
Imagine Academy has been a gift to my son and my entire family. Having been one of the first students enrolled in the school when it opened 14 years ago, Philip has grown up with the love, devotion and respect from the entire Imagine staff. Year after year, the focus has always been on giving him so many opportunities to become the best person that he was meant to be. We will forever be grateful to this school.
