ABA Transitional Classroom

Moving Families Forward

As parents of a child on the spectrum, we understand that meeting the demands of a classroom environment can be a struggle for the whole family. 

We experienced this with our own child who transitioned from ABA therapy to a typical classroom at the age of 9. The worries that we experienced both academically and socially were overwhelming.

And so we created our ABA Transitional Classroom as a unique environment where your child can be given the opportunity to practice skills which will help them successfully transition into a typical classroom.


A Unique Environment
  • Our transitional classroom is managed by a Licensed Elementary Educator who has years of direct experience in the ABA field and is dedicated to reaching every learner.

  • Children receive one-to-one assistance from our skilled staff who are trained on the child's ABA programs.

  • Activities are paced according to each child's abilities so they can focus on learning classroom readiness skills such as following directions, interacting positively with peers, and raising their hand to speak without the added stress of keeping up with a flow of new academic material.

  • Each child is supported by the same team that surrounds them during their ABA therapy sessions, so they each know they will be treated with respect for the unique individual that they are.

What's the Partners Difference?

This classroom itself is a unique resource. No other local providers offer a transition environment built with such intentional forethought and accuracy. This is not just a room where ABA professionals create a setting that looks like a classroom - this is a multi-faceted space designed and managed by licensed educators in continual collaboration with ABA professionals.


We understand that each child learns and grows at their own pace, and so we have no predetermined graduation date for your child. They can use our transitional classroom for as long as they need to be truly ready. Even as they move into an outside classroom, we remain involved, supporting you through every part of the transition and even afterwards to ensure that it is successful.


Your child's Behavior Analyst will prepare transition plans well in advance of any transitional changes so that we can ensure that each client is truly ready for the transition. During the transition, our Behavior Analysts will collaborate with school staff to implement appropriate accommodations and advocate for your child's potential. They will also continue to meet with the school staff after the transition to monitor the success of the accommodations and track student progress.
