To address the escalating demands of educating students with ASD, Gateway offers Direct Therapy with home/community ABA service and school shadow support. On a broader level, we’re able to provide the consultation and training needed for you to establish your own internal Autism Enrichment Program — thereby saving substantially on your outsourcing costs.
Training workshops for educators
Gateway’s training team can assist you by increasing the confidence of your staff to work with a wide variety of learners, thus maintaining students within LRE district placements and reducing costs associated with NPS and NPA services.
Our team is proud to have trained hundreds of district staff in California, holding Master Contracts with most districts and SELPAs in the San Francisco and San Diego Bay Areas. We collaborate with administrators to perform needs assessments for districts and develop individualized program improvement plans.

ABA therapy is often provided in a 1:1 format. However, specific applications of this science can also be highly effective in teaching small groups of students.

Addressing the challenge
Each school year, more and more students receive ASD diagnoses presenting greater demands on your already stretched budgets.
At Gateway, our Strategic Advisory experts have guided many school districts and other educational organizations in developing their own Autism Enrichment programs resulting in better outcomes and lower outsourcing expenditures. In certain cases, outsourcing costs can be cut by as much as 76%.
Why districts choose us
One reason is that a high percentage of our Behavior Analysts are former classroom teachers who are intimately aware of the needs of district staff as well as what represents best practices in educating students with autism. We use therapeutic techniques that help students to generalize and maintain their new skills in classroom settings.
Helping establish and maintain your internal AE Program, end-to-end.
Our Gateway consultants have considerable experience working with school districts and other organizations to establish Autism Enrichment Programs.
First, we assess any Autism Services you currently offer.From there, we devise a program and develop curricula customized to fit the needs of your specific student populations.
Next, to ensure the success of your program, we offer professional development training to help your instructional teams utilize the principles of ABA and learn to collect and analyze data that guides decisions on individual student progress and development.
Once your program is up and running, we provide ongoing support, counsel and training for your teams.
