Behavioral Concepts, Inc. (BCI), a company of behavioral clinicians specializing in the care of children with autism in Central Massachusetts, recently completed the relocation of its Worcester care center to 345A Greenwood Street in Worcester, Massachusetts.
“They say there’s no place like home. But when you have outgrown your current home like we had at 170 Goddard Memorial Drive, then that mantra becomes there’s no place like a new home,” said BCI Founder Dr. Jeffrey Robinson. “We are delighted to be moved into our new space, which we know will better serve our current students and accommodate two very special projects BCI will undertake—the opening of a pre-school and a private day school.”
The day school, to be called the Center for Applied Behavioral Instruction (CABI), is tentatively scheduled to open in early 2014, pending approval from the Worcester School Committee.
The preschool, the Accelerated Learning Academy, will open in the fall of 2014. Students at the Accelerated Learning Academy will be taught using behavioral teaching methodology.
“These two schools will provide parents and families of children with autism spectrum disorders additional options for their education and care,” said Robinson.
Through its host of services and programs, BCI helps children with autism and autism spectrum disorders develop their learning skills and social skills. In addition, BCI works with families of children with autism and ASDs to alert them to services provided by the school system and by their health insurance.
As for the new location, a grand opening celebration is planned for later in 2013 or early 2014. BCI’s corporate offices are located in Mansfield, Massachusetts.
