We also implement Relational Frame Theory and use the PEAK curriculum to make learning efficient. Last, we employ principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy/Training to address social/emotional needs. 

No two students have exactly the same strengths, needs, or learning style. That’s why we create individualized learning plans for every child that combines explicit, direct, small-group instruction, digital supplement, therapies, and facilitated socialization in a way that works for each child's unique needs.

We are committed. 

WHAT WE BELIEVE

 


THE FACILITATORS, ADMINISTRATORS AND SUPPORT STAFF AT BREAKTHROUGH ACADEMY ARE UNITED IN the following BELIEFs about ALL CHILDREN:

 

  • they have the ability and right to learn

  • they are curious & creative

  • they can succeed

  • if they are not learning, we are not teaching

  • they deserve us to never, ever, ever give up on them
    ​ 

WHAT WE DO


We employ only evidence-based practice in the field of special education, the treatment of autism and other developmental disabilities, the treatment of dyslexia and other learning disorders, and the support of social/emotional needs.

We are committed to the hard work of implementing the most current, effective research-based interventions.

In order to accomplish our mission, we obtain continuing professional development and supportive mentorship.

Chartlytics

Our Mathetics and Fluency-based Instruction using Precision Teaching practice is trained by and supported by Morningside Academy and its Teacher's Academy program. 

Staff who are required to obtain ABA supervision by the BACB currently receive it from staff at Chartlytics (now part of Central Reach). We have received mentoring to implement Precision Teaching by Dr. Rick Kubina and his team. We are using Chartlytics and its digital Standard Celeration Chart to quantify performance and make data-driven decisions about instruction. 

 PARENT AS THE "TEACHER"

 

As a parent, your role can make a big impact in how your son or daughter perceives learning and performs in school. We encourage you to help your child understand his or her needs and learning style.

 


PARTNER WITH US!


We invite you to work with our staff to help your child get all he or she can out of his/her growing years.


Please attend our monthly parent & community training events offered on the third Tuesday of each month from 5:30-6:30 (some will be available virtually) on our campus.
