Partner Program Classrooms

A model ABA classroom, the Partner Program model was developed in collaboration with a public school in 1997 and has grown to include 27 classrooms in 20 districts across 4 states.  The Partner Program enables districts to provide a level of service similar to that found in out-of-district placements, while allowing students to be included in their community school.  Through this model, NECC provides:

  • Full-time certified special educator
  • Weekly consultation from a BCBA
  • Initial and ongoing professional development for school paraprofessionals affiliated with the classroom
  • Full complement of educational programming through the Autism Curriculum Encyclopedia® (ACE®) including assessments, curriculum and progress monitoring tools.


Our BCBA Consultants focus on building staff skill sets and classroom systems to increase knowledge and capacity, allowing you to serve students more effectively now and in the future.

  • Short-term and ongoing consultation to individual students, classrooms or programs
  • Evaluation of existing clinical-educational programming for individual students or programs
  • District-wide evaluation and systems consultation
