The Little Tree Preschools are inclusive educational programs serving children with developmental challenges alongside their typically developing peers. Programs focus on teaching readiness and prerequisite 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.
