At the heart of our educational approach is building a relationship with our students in order to create a trusting and communicative environment. Visitors have often remarked that even with the highly clinical structure at CABI, we have been able to foster natural interactions between students & staff. CABI provides classroom & community instruction. Our school is located in the heart of a bustling commercial environment allowing for tremendous access to our local community. Community inclusion allows for a learning environment without the borders of a classroom Our core class schedule is tailored for each student’s needs with 1:2 Staff to Student ratio including a BCBA & Special Ed Teacher within each class with class size limit of 8 students. Our educational services have research-based oversight from doctoral level clinicians, in addition, CABI values a multi-disciplinary approach where ancillary services are both team consultative & direct for our students.
