We are a program dedicated to students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and related learning or developmental disabilities. We are a California Department of Education Certified Nonpublic School which allows us to collaborate with every member of each IEP team to determine how to best serve each family and student.
40 Years Experience
The Success of E.C.E. 4 Autism is in the unique program developed by Irene Bellot. She has helped and tutored special needs children since 1966.
We are a California Department of Education Certified Nonpublic School.
Set in the safe and comforting environment of a former private residence converted into a school, the intimate and safe setting contributes to the focus and success of each child.
Specialty services are provided with in the school day for each student who has a determined need based on IEP assessment and team recommendation. They are provided either as a pull out service where the student and service provider have a private work space or as a push in service with in the classroom based on the need of the student and the goal that is being worked on.
Behavior Intervention / Modification
ECE 4 Autism was founded on the belief that maladaptive behavior is a product of one's environment. With small group, 1:1, behavior intervention and support, and a whole person approach, ECE 4 Autism will help motivate change in each student's life both inside and outside of school.
Occupational Therapists are National Board Certified Occupational Therapists who address sensory modulation, fine motor, gross motor, visual motor and coordination skills. These services are offered as a need basis for the student based on IEP or as requested by private placement. ECE 4 Autism provides Occupational Therapy related services on an individual basis to help support and implement a student's IEP. Students also get the benefits of working on Occupational Therapy goals as part of their day-to-day classroom goals as well as individual therapy.
Speech and Language
ECE 4 Autism is proud to work along side some of the best and well trained SLP and SLPAs that have first hand knowledge of the unique learning styles of our students. Our team implements the speech services of an IEP as well as collaborate and consult with our SLPs to continue the work inside the classroom on a daily basis.
Adapted Physical Education
Why ECE 4 Autism is Right for You
Set in the comforting environment of a former private residence converted into a school, the intimate and safe setting contributes to the focus and success of each child. Our program applies the BPS model, the biopsychosocial model, that is a whole child approach working with each child through their psychological, physical and social environment. Through a truly individualized academic, social, emotional, behavioral, and functional program we help develop the trust needed between the student and our staff to help them flourish. We work with each family individually to help keep a consistent and seamless transition between the home and school environment leading the way for generalization of learned skills. Our staff is dedicated to the wellbeing of not just the individual student in our care, but the family as a whole.
