The Watson Institute Behavior Support Academy for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other communication behavior disorders is a program at Watson's Sewickley campus. It is our intention to serve students in this program with considerable behavior challenges, but for whom their team feels, with intensive behavioral support for a relatively short period of time, would be able to return to a less restrictive setting. Students appropriately served in this program can benefit from an adapted academic program but because of their behavior challenges need a program that is highly structured and systematic. The goal of The Watson Institute Behavior Support Academy is to develop and implement a Positive Behavior Support program for each student within a rich learning environment. When the student is making progress and the team feels the child is able to attend classes in his/her home district, Watson staff will support the transition back to the district. the Positive behavior Support Plan will be implemented in the school district with the support of Watson staff.
