CABI school has been a new and refreshing experience for Jacob and our family. We are thankful to all the remarkable teachers and staff who have made a difference in his education. Jacob is now building social skills and self-esteem. He is actually learning, we couldn’t be happier!

For most families, if you are reading these testimonials you have experienced challenges with your child and their current school. Searching for an appropriate placement for your child can feel overwhelming so I hope a short snapshot of my son’s story can help. Edwin had been in sub separate Autism classrooms within the public school system for many years; and while there were challenges, nothing prepared me for the difficulties he faced in his transition to middle school. I knew he required another placement and believed there had to be a school that implemented ABA principles consistently throughout his day and with fidelity. I knew that a program that employed some “ABA techniques and principles,” but was not truly based on ABA methodology, was not sufficient. I believed the only way to appropriately respond to his behaviors and to ensure his behavior plan was followed was to have a BCBA in his classroom. I was looking for a program that took frequent data and had that data readily available. I knew there had to be a school that would work on activities of daily living skills to help promote his independence, and I knew I needed to find a school that frequently provided opportunities to generalize his social skills in the community. I knew every year the transition in the fall was difficult, and a full year program was essential to prevent substantial regression. I knew he needed movement and exercise integrated into his school day. And while all of the instructional components were essential, most important was a school that felt like a community. CABI is everything my son needed in a school, and everything I wanted for him as his mother. From the moment he started CABI, everything changed. In addition to his academic and behavioral goals being met, he has so much fun. CABI understands that education goes beyond the classroom walls, and Edwin enjoys going to the public library with his classmates, swimming and exercising at the YMCA, attending field trips, going on community outings to the store and park, and family celebrations at school throughout the year. He loves going to school every day! There is hope. Thank you CABI

We have found the perfect school for our son! Prior to attending this school, he was in a traditional setting which was very difficult for him to cope with. He would often try to escape or exhibit a negative behavior to avoid attending a class and he truly disliked going to school. This in turn had a direct negative impact on his academics, his social interactions and his overall happiness.

Since starting at CABI, we have seen a total transformation in our son’s overall behavior. He is quite simply a very happy kid ready to go to school every day. His conversational skills have improved dramatically, as well as, his self-initiated social interactions. With the highly trained staff, we never worry about his teachers not knowing how to deal with every situation. We are often impressed with the different strategies they will develop, especially for our child and how effective they are. Most importantly, they are all very caring individuals who celebrate every milestone right alongside of us.

The most impressive thing that we have seen to date was a short paragraph that our son had written independently. To many this may seem like it was no big deal, but the thing you need to understand is that our son’s previous teachers, as well as, a few doctors told us that he doesn’t have the capability to write a paragraph on his own. After being at this school for less than a year, they have already surpassed my expectations! We think we have made it pretty clear but we highly recommend this school

I hope my son’s story will be powerful & helpful to establish trust & encourage visitors to visit and choose CABI School, to further reach out for their child’s needs & supports. CABI has been a new & beautiful beginning for my son Dougie! He started January 4th at CABI. My boy will be turning 13 next month. Prior to CABI, my son Dougie had attended the public school system, which was easier in the younger years. As he grew older, it was noticeable what he needed was very different and we felt that the public school couldn’t meet his needs.

As we found about and visited CABI, we felt right at home! Just watching how staff interacted with the children was just amazing. The program is structured and implemented to the students ability, not just the age & therefore easier to set up activities & teaching.

For our son Dougie, we haven’t seen him as happy and in good space as he has been since transitioning to CABI! His good space carries onto his transition to home. As parents, we could not be happier that our son is receiving his education at CABI School. Our biggest surprise is our son’s 4 week smooth transition to his new school! There is not enough praise for the entire staff, who works endlessly, with such positive attitude and who have such respect and love for our child. Our son is brought back to task when having a hard time/melt down and/or self-injurious behavior. Our phones aren’t blowing up anymore to come pick our son up, as it did from the public school system!

I do not know that I have the words to reflect the overwhelming gratitude and respect we have for every member of the CABI TEAM. I highly recommend CABI School and I am overjoyed that our son Dougie is able to attend this truly remarkable school! I am Forever Grateful.

The Center for Applied Behavioral Instruction (CABI) has the best school! We are so happy to send our daughter, Meralis, to this school. I know now that we have made the right decision to send her to CABI. I cannot thank them enough for taking all the time they do to help her. Rick Freitas, an Instructional Aide in her classroom, has done such a wonderful job with our daughter. Meralis is so happy for the job that Rick and all the others are doing for her. Thank you again for all the help you give to our daughter!

Thank you!
