Meaningful Day Services now offers an ABA-Based Developmental Preschool program for ages 2 to 5 at our Children's Therapy Center in Jeffersonville, Indiana. This preschool program is designed to provide the maximum benefit to your child. We offer individualized and comprehensive programming in order to cultivate your child's cognitive, emotional, physical, and social development. Our three-day multi-disciplined program offers your child a combination of ABA, speech, occupational therapy, and music therapy in a 1:1 student-teacher ratio. In addition to the classroom teacher, our collaboration model includes a board-certified behavior analyst, a speech language pathologist, an occupational therapist, a board-certified music therapist, and registered behavior technicians. All members of the treatment team have undergone extensive ABA training to provide a more consistent approach to enhancing your child's classroom experience.
Our preschool is a learning environment not only for children, but also for parents and staff. We look forward to partnering with you in your child’s development by providing a strong bridge to the home component of our program, which includes, but is not limited to:
Our ABA-based preschool program provides a structured environment designed to stimulate language, initiate curiosity, increase attentiveness, build cooperation, and enhance self-esteem. Each preschooler will be placed in a “Learning Pod.” Each “Pod” consists of three learners and three therapists, each with their own schedule. An example of one of a “Pod” schedule follows:
8:30–9:00 Circle Time
9:30–10:00 Individualized Programming
10:00–10:15 Potty Break
11:00–11:30 Occupational Therapy
11:30–12:00 Music Therapy
…potty train my child? Our team of specialists will help your child achieve this goal in the home and in the facility setting.
…know you are the best fit for my child? At Meaningful Day Services, we believe that every child can learn. Using research-based methodology and a multi-disciplinary approach, we individualize a treatment plan to ensure that your child has all the tools available to overcome barriers and reach his or her full potential.
…know that the goals will be appropriate? This program relies on daily communication with families, and our programming is assessment-driven. Program goals and decisions are made with care, and they are based on analysis of daily data collected by your child’s treatment team. We use a combination of the following assessments: VB-MAPP (ABA), OWLS-II (SLP), and a Child Sensory Profile and the BOT2 for (OT).
