To transform the lives of children, including those with autism and other special needs, and prepare them for learning and life through the application of the Bridges ABA applied behavior analysis program and the incorporation of self-contained and integrated classroom instruction and all related services. To ensure that every child becomes engaged in observation, learning and responding with an emphasis on language, communication, social and play skills and the development of independence.
At Newmeadow, we believe that every child deserves the best education possible to prepare them for the world beyond the classroom. We believe that Bridges ABA is the path to that preparation and the foundation upon which our work on behalf of the children we serve rests. We believe in a learning environment that fosters and focuses on language acquisition and use, social skills development and the importance of play within a warm and caring setting that celebrates and encourages both individual growth and participation as part of a greater social community. Through the application of Bridges ABA, we work with all aspects of a child’s development to form a total program that provides for optimal growth and improvement, believing that every child can, will and does learn in their own unique way.
