The Victory Academic Programs - Serving Ages 8-22

TVC Academic Programming is founded on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. The goal is to deliver high quality, evidence-based  educational services to children, adolescents and young adults whose clinical diagnosis falls along the autism spectrum disorder and related developmental disorders.

The program focuses on teaching skills fundamental to mainstreaming and increasing a student’s independent functioning within society in combination with academic skills utilizing the Common Core Standards.

The Academic Programs offer a learning environment that utilizes highly-structured, individualized teaching techniques at a 2:1 and 3:1 student-to-teacher ratio.  Learning opportunities within this  program occur in both contrived and natural contexts to ensure functional outcomes and generalization of acquired skills.

Individualized behavior management services are directed and supervised by PhD level Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs).
