Training Center for Children with Autism

Our Program

Training with




& Limits

The First Step Training Program is based on a fundamental belief that an autistic child can learn. At our facility we employ seven full-time staff members who practice one-on-one programming with our students. Children are treated with the utmost respect so they may learn respect themselves.

We work on the following areas


Daily Life Skills







Success is our expectation, not just a goal.

Each child is given an initial assessment, during which we will gather his or her functional level. Each child admitted to our program has their own unique curriculum.

Our trainers work enthusiastically with each student in a station-by-station format. The specific activities train both gross and fine motor skills, cognitive skills, and social behavioral habits.

We work to help our students progress to a point where they are more ready to succeed at home, at school, and the rest of their lives. Our students have gone on to become independent workers and even college students.
