BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN SPECIAL EDUCATION AND INCLUSION
Teach Me Academy recognizes the challenges children with autism and their families face each and every day. Children with autism are unique individuals that deserve a quality education developed using research-based curriculum along with a scientifically proven behavior model, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Our students benefit from evidence-based, high-quality, comprehensive, and meaningful educational programming. Through the integration of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) support, small class ratios, and “one-and-one” instruction, our program creates an innovative environment that is engaging and responsive to each child at each stage of their development.
Teach Me Academy offers a strategic educational program designed to meet the unique needs of students with developmental, social, or academic differences. Your child’s school experience will be enhanced through:
- Multi-sensory instructional methods (hands-on and exploratory learning leads to meaningful knowledge with the highest documented retention rates)
- Individualized Assessments (find out where your child’s strengths and challenges and plans for remediation)
- Quarterly Progress Reporting (opportunities to meet with your child’s teachers will allow you to gauge your child’s progress through the year)
- Professional consultation and oversight (your child’s treatment plan will be overseen regularly by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst)

Structured curriculum yet maintaining grade level requirements & flexible enough to adapt to individual needs
We use multi-sensory supplemental curriculum along with standard curriculum to both ensure proper retention of conceptual material and prepare students for learning in a typical setting.
Our standard curriculum matches that of our “partner” schools:

Bethany Christian School
Teach Me Academy’s curriculum standards follow Bethany Christian School’s specific curriculum in order to aide in a smoother transition to becoming a full time student of the school. The Common Core Standards and the Texas Education Agency “Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills” (TEKS) are also considered when planning instruction. Teach Me Academy staff differentiates instruction based on the needs of our students. Accommodations and interventions are provided as needed to ensure student success.
