ABOUT AUGUSTA LEVY LEARNING CENTER


The Augusta Levy Learning Center is the first intensive autism treatment program in the Ohio Valley. Utilizing methods pioneered and proven by Dr. O. Ivar Lovaas of UCLA and his colleagues, and under the guidance of the Lovaas Institute For Early Intervention (LIFE), the Levy Center aims to enhance the language, social, academic and independent living skills of its students.

Each student at the Levy Center has his or her own unique curriculum based on the child’s needs and abilities and receives at least 30 hours a week of intensive, 1:1 instruction using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

ABA is a systematic approach to teaching small, measurable units of behavior, from relatively simple responses like making eye contact to spontaneous communication and social interaction. These skills are broken down into small steps and taught systematically through one-on-one instruction and positive reinforcement from teachers trained by the Lovaas Institute For Early Intervention (LIFE).

The intervention program is based on extensive clinical experience and more than 30 years of scientific research and yields the best educational results for children with autism.

A unique component of the program is parent involvement. Parents are considered the most essential part of the child’s educational team and are trained by Lovaas consultants to work alongside the child’s therapists and to implement programs in the home.

The center is named for Augusta K. Levy, a longtime teacher who epitomized skill and commitment needed to teach children that had previously been labeled as unteachable.
