Every aspect of the Augusta Levy program is designed to propel children with autism to reach their highest potential.
The Augusta Levy Learning Center is the first intensive autism treatment program in West Virginia. We utilize methods pioneered and proven by Dr. O. Ivar Lovaas of UCLA and his colleagues. The Augusta Levy Learning Center aims to enhance the social, academic, communication and independent living skills of its students.
Every student receives 30-40 hours of 1:1 instruction each week.
HIGHLY TRAINED STAFF
Our staff works in a team environment that is dedicated to providing high-quality, individualized treatment to children with autism. Augusta Levy Learning Center offers extensive training to our staff so that our behavior therapists can provide researched-based treatment to our clients. Each behavior therapist completes weeks of hands-on training and each must pass a national exam to become a registered behavior technician (RBT). The RBT credential is internationally recognized with the highest level of applied behavior analysis training. Behavior Technicians work one-on-one with children carrying out programs designed by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), as well as communicate daily with parents.
Two-thirds of our graduates are successfully attending regular education classrooms.
A unique component of the program is parent involvement. We provide weekly training sessions for parents, have parent workshops every 4-8 weeks, and offer support for coordination of services in the home.
