Opening in August, 2009, The Forbush School at Anne Arundel will serve children ages ten to 21 with autism, pervasive developmental disorder (PDD), developmental delays in one or more areas, severe behavioral problems, multiple learning problems and other related disorders, and provides special education services and related services for these disorders.

After a period of evaluation, individualized education programs are developed to meet each child’s specific needs. Skills are taught in highly structured settings, such as direct instruction, than are introduced in to less structured, naturalistic settings. This design helps to enhance skill development while improving generalization. Additional components of the program include small group instruction, individualized student daily schedules, life skills training and leisure skills training, in addition to academic instruction. All areas of instruction and behavior management utilize applied behavior analysis principles.

Parents are encouraged to participate fully in decisions regarding programming for their children. Staff and parents work together to carry over skills into the home environment.
