Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 09, 2011
Special Learning, Inc., an online comprehensive autism solutions company, today announced its collaboration with Dr. James Partington of Partington Behavior Analyst (http://www.partingtonbehavioranalysts.com), a pioneer in the area of Applied Behavior Analysis, Verbal Behavior and the creator of The ABLLS-R, a comprehensive assessment tool, curriculum guide, and skills-tracking system used to help teach language and critical skills to children with autism or other developmental disabilities.
One of the most common deficits in individuals with autism is delay in communication and other language skills. This is one of the main factors that prevent individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) from mainstreaming into a typical classroom setting and ultimately integrating into mainstream society. Verbal Behavior uses evidence-based interventions based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to teach critical skills to help individuals with ASD improve their chances of leading a more fulfilling and independent life.
Through this partnership, Special Learning and Partington Behavior Analysts will explore opportunities to leverage current and emerging technology to develop products and solutions to make ABA and VB accessible to people across the globe. Special Learning and Partington Behavior Analyst are very excited about this collaboration and look forward to developing solutions that positively impact the lives of people with autism spectrum disorder.
