Aurora’s Philosophy

We believe that education is most effective when its application is based on valid research findings from the fields of education and behavior analysis.  Aurora is a stimulating learning environment for both its students and staff.  We provide a collaborative, progressive, and innovative learning environment for children of all ages and developmental disabilities.

Teaching practices at The Aurora School are derived primarily from the principles and concepts of applied behavior analysis (ABA).  The cornerstones of the program are positive reinforcement, continuous measurement of learning, and graphic-displayed data analysis.  Verbal behavior, social skills, self-management, problem-solving skills, math, and reading are all systematically taught via evidence-based curricula, as well as curricula developed in-house by our teachers and behavior analysts.

After a long day’s work, a bit of puzzle time is good for all.
