Services for Children

We are dedicated to providing children with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities with the education, skills, and support they need to achieve greater independence and realize their full potential. Our programs, including Day School, After School Programs, Preschool, Community Habilitation, and many more, offer a range of services designed to meet the unique needs of each child and their family. All of our services incorporate the evidence-based principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

After School Programs

Our after school programs provide therapeutic and behavior-oriented teaching and clinical treatment programs for children and adolescents.

Community Habilitation

The Community Habilitation program is primarily a skills training program designed to assist families caring for their loved ones with disabilities living at home.

Day School

QSAC’s Day School program provides children 5 to 21 years of age with an appropriate education, implemented in the least restrictive environment.

Early Intervention

The QSAC Early Intervention program addresses families’ behavioral and educational goals as outlined in their child’s Individualized Family Service Plan.

Emergency Respite

QSAC has funds available to assist families living in Queens to pay for emergency respite for their disabled loved ones in times of crisis.


QSAC offers center-based preschool programs that provide children between the ages of 3 and 5 with an appropriate education in the least restrictive environment.

Preschool Evaluation

We offer comprehensive evaluations for early intervention children transitioning to CPSE or any preschool-age child with a suspected delay in cognitive and educational development, behavior, speech, OT, and PT.

Respite at Home

The QSAC In-Home Respite program seeks to provide scheduled care to individuals with autism or pervasive developmental disorder in their homes.

Saturday Recreation

QSAC’s Saturday Recreation Program offers therapeutic recreation, structured activities, community outings and teaches functional skills. This program has been temporarily closed since the pandemic.

Social Skills Group

Our Social Skills Group is for individuals with autism. Individuals with autism often exhibit deficits in social, interpersonal, and communication skills, which can significantly impact their success and overall progress.

Special Education Itinerant Teacher

The Special Education Itinerant Teacher (SEIT) program is open to all children between 3 and 5 classified by the Board of Education’s Committee on Pre-School Special Education (CPSE) as a preschooler with a disability.

Special Education Teacher Support Service

The Special Education Teacher Support Service (SETSS) Program aims to address the behavioral objectives and educational goals outlined in each child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP).

Transition Services and Support for Students

QSAC offers an array of services and support tailored for transition-age youth preparing for the transition to life after high school. Services include career awareness, case management, and skills workshops.
