THE SCHOOL

The Center for Applied Behavioral Instruction (CABI) is a private, special education day school for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and challenging behaviors. Licensed and approved by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, CABI serves students aged 6 through 22. Prior to enrolling in CABI, each student has experienced difficulty learning the requisite skills and behaviors to be successful in their local public school. The staff seeks to reverse that negative learning experience by identifying the variables that promote each student’s success. CABI employs Applied Behavior Analysis as its instructional methodology. CABI believes only scientifically validated procedures should be used to educate children with autism. CABI’s mission is to provide best-practice behavioral and educational services to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. CABI believes that every child has the unique potential to grow and develop skills that will lead to a more independent and fulfilling life. The staff is committed to helping each student reach his or her personal best and achieve the possible.

Through special events such as the Achieve Golf Tournament and community partnerships, the school hopes to expand their programming to offer additional opportunities that will enrich and enhance their students’ academic experience. These include but are not limited to: vocational training for transition age students, music and art classes for all students, extracurricular activities such as a robotics club, and much more.
