The Little Tree Preschools are “inclusive” educational programs serving children with developmental challenges alongside their typically developing peers. Programs focus on teaching readiness and perquisite skills to prepare the children for primary school. We utilize strategies based on the science of applied behavior analysis (ABA) in teaching our children. We also offer speech therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy as needed. The primary focus of intervention is language acquisition but additional areas such as self-care skills, play skills, social skills, and pre-academic skills in preparation for kindergarten are also important. Our teachers plan developmentally and age appropriate lessons and utilize thematic teaching. Additional teaching procedures used are not limited to the following: discrete trial teaching, incidental teaching, least-to-most prompting sequences, most-to-least prompting sequences, shaping, reinforcement and differential reinforcement.

Additionally, we provide training at both the undergraduate and graduate level for a number of disciplines including Education, Human Development and Family Sciences, and Psychology through a partnerships with Auburn University, Jacksonville State University and the University of South Alabama.
