Educational Philosophy

We are a private non-profit educational center providing data-driven, evidence-based, customized one-to-one academic and behavior programs for neurodiverse children.

Lumen Academy’s trained technicians work one-on-one with each child. This allows them to closely monitor emotional responses in order to match the difficulty of the material and method of instruction to the child’s ability level and rate of learning. Supervision of each child’s program is provided by one of our BCBAs (Board Certified Behavior Analysts) with regular progress reviews performed monthly.

In addition to the individual ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) programming we conduct monthly team meetings and parent training, programs to address problem behaviors, and a range of behavior analytic services. Our focus is to help your child gain skills in all areas of life so that we may provide them with the opportunity to live a vibrant life.

Every student receives an assessment. A program is designed in cooperation with each child’s family to address his/her particular needs, goals, and learning style. All of these programs are developed using ABA principles. The programs are provided or supervised by a BCBA as well as a staff of Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) and may also include other professional services (SLP, OT/PT…etc.). We work on all areas of development including academic, language, motor, behavior, adaptive skills, cognition, executive function, play skills, and social skills – all based on VB-MAPP, ABLLS-R assessments, direct observation, and functional behavioral assessment.
