Augusta Levy Learning Center (Autism School)
The Augusta Levy Learning Center is the first intensive autism treatment program in the Ohio Valley. Utilizing methods pioneered and proven by Dr. O. Ivar Lovaas of UCLA and his colleagues, and under the guidance of the Lovaas Institute For Early Intervention (LIFE), the Levy Center aims to enhance the language, social, academic and independent living skills of its students.
Each student at the Levy Center has his or her own unique curriculum based on the child’s needs and abilities and receives at least 30 hours a week of intensive, 1:1 instruction using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
College students in special education, early education, and psychology might have particular interest in this Center. To be considered as a volunteer, please visit https://augustalevylearningcenter.org/ or contact:
