We provide high-quality, culturally relevant instruction to improve children’s academic and behavioral outcomes. We’ll teach in small groups, dyads, or one-to-one, depending on what’s best for the child. Upon admission, we’ll measure your child's reading skills and develop an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) to ensure that they receive appropriate instruction. We will implement differentiated instruction, measure each child’s progress, and make instructional changes when necessary. Frequent play breaks and snacks will be provided during all sessions.
We value and highly encourage parent involvement in our program. We will share daily progress notes to ensure that parents know how their child is doing in the program. We will also share monthly tips for how caretakers can continue to practice what the children learn in our program at home.

At KABAS, we provide a unique data-driven approach that supports behavioral, social-emotional, and academic success. We have small classroom sizes with a high teacher-student ratio. Based on the level of support they need, our students work in 1:1, 2:1 dyads, or in small homogeneous groups to ensure that they make significant gains. KABAS offers 2 curriculum tracks that are based on the child's present level of performance: Track A- Pre-academics and Track B- Academics. In both curriculum tracks, our students receive Tiered systems of support based on their needs.
Multi-tiered system of support
This track focuses on teaching pre-academic skills such as functional communication, functional living skills, early literacy, social skills, and other appropriate academic goals. Students usually work in 1:1 until they are ready to participate in small groups.
This track focuses on academic skills based on common core standards. All students participate in behavioral and academic assessments that inform their Individualized Learning Plan. Direct Instruction and other programs are used to ensure student success. Students usually work in pairs or small groups.
In Tier 1, all students will receive universal academic and behavioral support. In Tier II, students will receive targeted support in dyads or small groups. In Tier III, Functional Behavior Assessments are conducted, and students receive highly individualized behavior and academic support.
