The CAPS Horizons program serves students with moderate to severe disabilities including autism who present with delays in cognitive development as well as communication, social, and sensory impairments. Students are provided individualized educational programming based on the MA Curriculum Frameworks and the students’ IEPs. Instruction is delivered in a small group and 1:1 format using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis including discrete trial training, incidental teaching, and behavior shaping. Goals of the program are to develop functional academics, functional living skills, as well as vocational, community and leisure skills. Students with health impairments are monitored by a Registered Nurse.
