Seamless School Transitions

As we approach a new school year, excitement and anxiety fill the air for children with special needs and parents alike. Transitioning from a laid-back summer to a structured school routine can be challenging, particularly for those who thrive on predictability. At The Oxford Center, we’re excited about this time of year because, ABA Academy! ABA Academy is an essential part of The Oxford Center. Our Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) principles empower children with the skills they need for seamless transitions. We understand the importance of a confident start to the school year, and our ABA Academy focuses on building adaptable skills and behaviors so that when your child is ready, school is successful.
