Why is Autism Called a Spectrum Disorder?
Autism is called a spectrum disorder because people with autism display a wide range of skill deficits. They are at the same time remarkably different and similar. Each child with autism has unique educational needs and challenges: educators’ tailor their teaching to those specific needs.
At REED, we see the potential in every child and know that every person with autism is capable of learning. Through the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) we teach foundational, academic and functional life skills through individualized instructional programs.
