Academy Behavioral Programming
for Children with Autism
Vista, Inc. partnered with Eden
II Programs to develop the first interactive- ABA
course on CD-ROM for teaching educators and parents how to effectively
educate children with autism. Eden
II Programs is a cutting-edge school for autistic individuals.
The Autism Academy was conceived of and established in 1999 by Rich DiSilvio, a new media developer and president of Digital Vista. As a parent of a child with autism, he saw the need to effectively address the gapping void in educational training for teachers that were desperately seeking ABA skills for dealing with autism. Partnering with Joanne Gerenser, a highly respected maven in the field of autism and president of two premiere schools for autism, namely Eden II Programs and the Genesis School, their combined resources yielded the highly effective “Behavioral Programming for Children with Autism” CD-ROM. This
highly acclaimed learning tool has proven extremely successful
since its release in 1999, and here's why...
CD-ROM: Our well organized ABA courseware gives you "the educator or parent" the ability to learn at your
own pace, and navigate to the exact topic of learning you wish
to acquire, or you can take the courses in order and complete the
entire program. This program will help any educator, parent or
Special Ed student looking to grasp the effectiveness of Applied
Behavior Analysis (ABA) . Our courseware addresses many aspects of ABA
with clear examples and printable data sheets to hand guide you
into forming an effective and well structured program to educate
people with autism. Divided into six classrooms, our virtual Academy offers a narrated lecture with visual presentations
to more clearly convey this often difficult to comprehend information
by reading alone. Surpassing videos, our lectures offer you the
ability to pause, step backward or forward one increment at a
time, or quickly jump to another classroom to easily navigate to
a specific topic in seconds.
Taking that a step further, after
hearing and viewing our informative lectures you can engage in
cognitive interactive lessons. You will be asked
important questions, which you will then be prompted to answer. Test
your knowledge acquisition to see if you'll need to repeat the lesson
or proceed forward. This new method of learning is NOT available
in videos or DVDs. Meanwhile, books rely upon the reader to test themselves
- if they have the time or inkling how to do so.
with over 70 live instructional video clips, animations, a glossary
of terms on autism, and a Forms section that includes the entire
lectures and various data and work sheets that can be printed
out, you'll have everything you need to acquire a comprehensive
foundation in ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) and affect change
in an autistic child's life. With over ten years of successes, the Autism Academy software is a proven Autism Training Solution.
From day one we had realized that books and videos left many educators and
parents bewildered. Either it was numerous books with superfluous
information (not relevant to their specific needs), or videos that
run from start to finish with no clear way of relocating specific
areas of learning. Try finding that particular lecture in your
2 hour long video with your VCR's fast-forward or rewind button.
Not an easy or pleasant task. Even DVDs don't offer the direct access of this CD-ROM, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, nor do they offer the interactive quizzes or the print outs. That's why the solution is clear...for the best ABA training software available choose
the Autism Academy CD-ROM.
