Our Students’ Safety Comes First

Our Students’ Safety Comes First

Student safety has always been an essential part of a school’s climate. Creating a safe learning space for every student is essential, whether they are traditional students or those with special needs.

Autistic kids have a distinct set of behaviors and qualities that require a safe and supportive learning environment. The Autism Academy is committed to providing this kind of environment to ensure that everyone can focus on learning vital skills without any disruptions.

Autism Academy’s Value on Safety

Students, even children with autism, spend a huge chunk of time at school. It is just as vital to keep them safe inside the school’s premises as it is at home. Because of the nature of the condition, safety measures and accommodations can become more difficult to apply to children with autism.

At The Autism Academy, we believe that every child with autism can learn best when they are safe. This is why we work hard to make sure that we provide the best opportunities for everyone to learn and be successful in a safe and comfortable environment. We make sure that our students’ Safety comes first.

Safety on an Individual Level

Our programs take into account each child’s individuality and uniqueness. When tackling safety challenges, we make sure to work closely with families to design the most ideal accommodation for each student. From preparations and routines to communication strategies, each individual is taken into account to create a safe learning environment that is most conducive to learning.

Being centered around our students, our decisions regarding safety focuses on lessening their struggles and difficulties with their condition. Physical and emotional safety is such a priority that every staff member is not only trained in behavioral crisis prevention, but is also equipped with the right skills to keep every student safe inside the school premises.

Safety-Care Certification

At the Autism Academy for Education and Development, each staff member has completed the Safety-Care and Behavioral Safety Training, a leading crisis prevention course aimed at preventing and de-escalating behavioral challenges early on. This course centers around managing behaviors as safely as possible.

Safety-Care is founded upon evidence-based research in the areas of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). The curriculum equips our staff with the best strategies available in helping and teaching autistic children.

Cultivating a Healthy Environment

Student safety is necessary, especially for autistic schools. At Autism Academy, It is important that our students feel not only welcomed by everyone, but are also comfortable and safe as well. We have always been consistent with our goal of maintaining and cultivating an environment that is healthy and safe for all students, regardless of educational stage.
