MCSD  Autism Classroom Environment and Approach

We are a Marcus Model classroom.  All of our students receive pull out/separate instruction to meet their needs.  Our classes are overseen by a BCBA and we use the ABA approach that is developed by the Marcus School Consult Program within the state of Georgia.  Daily instruction includes individually/developed Discrete Trial Training Programs, Verbal Behavior/Functional Communication Training, and a variety of instructional strategies designed to increase skill acquisition tracked by the ABLLS-R, AFLS, and/or the VB-MAPP.
