``Ultimately, it became clear the best way to implement the program was through a partnership between CCS and the Kelberman Center,’’ she said.
``Our goal is to provide a quality and appropriate educational program for children with autism in our community.’’ added Wissick, who was hired specifically for the program.
Wissick said CCS has been able to develop a curriculum around each child. She said she and her colleagues use discrete trial training, a behaviorally- based technique, method of teaching.
``The program is a unique educational environment beyond a typical classroom setting to meet the individual academic and social needs of each child,’’ said Wissick.
``Most of the students receive primary instruction and goal work in our classroom.’’
