One in 68 Children has Autism
The ABA Child Learning Series is a weekly workshop, held at the QSAC main office.
QSAC offers six After-School Programs that seek to provide therapeutic and behavior-oriented teaching and clinical treatment programs for children and adolescents with autism or pervasive developmental disorder.
The Community Habilitation program is primarily a skills training program designed to assist families who are caring for their disabled loved one at home. It enables individuals with autism or pervasive developmental disorder to develop the skills and behaviors necessary to be participating members of their home and community.
QSAC's Day School program provides children 5 to 21 years of age with an appropriate education, implemented in the least restrictive environment. Each student receives individualized programming that is designed and implemented in conjunction with the Committee on Special Education, the student's family, the student's school teacher, therapists, and the Director of the School.
The QSAC Early Intervention program is designed to address the behavioral and educational goals of families as outlined in their child’s Individualized Family Service Plan.
The Emergency Respite Fund is designed to assist families in coping with unexpected family illnesses, pregnancies, deaths, and/or extreme emotional stresses.
The QSAC Family Reimbursement program allocates funds to families for the reimbursement of goods and services, not covered under any existing benefits or entitlements.
The QSAC Overnight Respite program offers the opportunity for greater independence for participants while giving a weekend of relief to care givers.
QSAC offers a center-based Preschool program that provides children between the ages of 3 and 5 with an appropriate education in the least restrictive of environments. The preschool is a full day, 12-month program with small classrooms led by New York State Certified Special Education Teachers.
The QSAC Preschool (CPSE) Evaluation Site is designed to offer comprehensive evaluations for Early Intervention children transitioning to CPSE or any preschool age child with a suspected delay in the areas of cognitive and educational development, behavior, speech, OT, and PT.
The QSAC In-Home Respite program seeks to provide scheduled care to individuals with autism or pervasive developmental disorder in their own homes. The program serves a dual purpose as it provides participants with opportunities to develop greater independence and dignity, while offering caregivers a break from their daily responsibilities.
QSAC's Saturday Recreation Program offers therapeutic recreation, structured activities, community outings and teaches functional skills. We have highly skilled therapists that use the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to teach the participants communication skills, ADL skills, and appropriate socialization.
The QSAC School Holiday In-Home Respite program seeks to provide scheduled care to families caring for a disabled loved one. The program is specifically designed to offer families a period of relief on days when public schools are closed.
The QSAC Service Coordination program assists individuals with autism or pervasive developmental disorder and their families in obtaining necessary clinical, educational, financial, medical, residential and social services.
Our Special Education Itinerant Teacher (SEIT) program is open to all children between the ages of 3 and 5 classified by the Board of Education's Committee on Pre-School Special Education (CPSE) as a pre-schooler with a disability. The objective of SEIT is to address all of the behavioral objectives and educational goals that are outlined in each child's Individual Educational Plan.
The objective of our Special Education Teacher Support Service (SETSS) Program is to address the behavioral objectives and educational goals that are outlined in each child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP). All programmatic instruction is implemented according to the principles and procedures of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
We provide a Social Skills Group for individuals on the autism spectrum, targeting those with high functioning autism and Asperger's syndrome. The QSAC Social Skills Group will provide the participants with the communication, socialization, and interactive skills to thrive in various settings, similar to their typically developing peers.
