A successful future starts with Spectrum Schools and Programs
We teach students who need individualized resources and support the skills needed for a successful, more independent future.
Spectrum designs and implements personalized programs for students who have educational and behavioral challenges that require intensive supports. Spectrum Center works in cooperation, not competition, with school districts to provide individualized services in a least restrictive environment for students so that they can return back to the district or transition to life after high school.
Guided by the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA), Spectrum programs employ Board Certified Behavior Analysts, credentialed teachers, therapists, vocational coaches and others to provide for every aspect of a child’s IEP development, implementation and evaluation.
Spectrum Center Schools and Programs serves children and young adults aged five to 22 who have autism spectrum disorders, developmental delays, emotional disturbances, behavioral challenges or other special needs. Spectrum Center provides special education services to public schools by operating nonpublic schools for students with special needs, as well as special education classrooms within public school buildings.
Spectrum Center programs and classrooms provide comprehensive academic, behavioral, communication, and therapeutic services to engage students in learning. Those services include:
- Quality of research-based & data-based practices to maximize learning
- Data driven decisions to inform instruction and evaluate IEP goal completion
- Individualized programming and ability to meet each student’s unique pace and needs
- Structured, effective behavior management systems
- Inclusion opportunities
- Vocational and community-based instruction for all ages
- Transition services to empower students on their next phase in life
Known for the quality of its research-based, data-driven programs, Spectrum Center is a member of the California Association of Private Special Education Schools (CAPSES), and individual Spectrum Center locations are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
