About Little Star
Little Star Center & Behavioral Clinic serves a dual-function as both a nonprofit 501(c)3 private school and a behavior therapy center. We are known as the “ABA School” of Jacksonville. Little Star provides comprehensive, affordable, individual education and behavioral services for children between the ages of 2-12 years who struggle with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other developmental delays.
We place a strong emphasis on academics, behavior, and communication. We use Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) as our primary mode of instruction. Put simply, ABA is a scientifically-based, systematic method of improving socially significant behavior. It is used to address behavioral excesses and deficits across multiple domains. So, for instance, that could include increasing the acquisition of academic targets and communication skills and/or decreasing the occurrence of undesirable behaviors.
We utilize individual instruction, group instruction, and social skills training. Our ultimate goal is to prepare children with Autism and other developmental delays for a typical educational setting through intense training and small group sessions.
