The Elm Classroom (formerly Victory Prep) offers intensive ABA services to children with Autism, ages 4 to 7, allowing the children the opportunity to grow and make notable, individualized progress in areas of communication, play, and social skills. In addition, Elm prepares the children to transition into Victory Academy's full-day academic and therapeutic classroom-based programs.
Each Elm student will have an individualized ABA program to build and improve his/her language skills, social and emotional regulatory systems, academic skills, and other prerequisite skills necessary for more advanced learning. Individualized ABA programs will also be created to teach dressing, eating, toileting, and other related daily living skills. Sensory engagement with teachers and peers will be interspersed throughout the Elm Day. Students will also have full access to the Victory Academy Campus, including play areas, gardens, and sensory gym(s).
Elm enrollment is open to 4 to 7 year-old children with Autism. The program day is from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday - Friday, and it is year-round. Elm is supervised and instructed by one of Victory Academy's BCBAs, Kristina Montgomery, in addition to the Elm team of highly qualified Registered Behavior Technicians. Enrolled students are guaranteed first consideration into Victory Academy the following school year, if the student meets the school's admissions and age requirements.
Victory's Directors work with families and provide guidance with respect to insurance reimbursement. Families should inquire with their individual health insurance companies regarding benefits related to Applied Behavioral Analysis. At this time, many ELm families are receiving reimbursement for ABA services.
