School-Based Autism Services

A girl working at school.At Wesley Spectrum Services, we provide a wide array of integrated autism, behavioral health, education and family support services to meet the complex needs of children and families in western Pennsylvania. Our School-Based Autism Services program works with your school district to increase competencies of school staff in order to keep students with Autism Spectrum Disorders in school, build lifelong skills, and remove barriers to learning.

Our services are rooted in the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and focus on understanding the strengths and needs of each student. We use data-based decision making as well as positive, proactive strategies to remove barriers to learning. We stress educating and transferring skills to the student, the family and school personnel.
