We are proud to announce that Building Blocks Center for Autism’s private day school for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders has just earned accreditation by VAISEF (Virginia Association for Independent Specialized Education Facilities)! VAISEF is an association of Virginia private providers of specialized education and services for children and youth with special needs, and their families. Receiving accreditation means that Building Blocks has met VAISEF’s high standards for private school services for special education.
“Building Blocks pursued this accreditation to demonstrate its commitment to continuous improvement and high standards for educational services for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. This accreditation supports our ability to serve past, present and future students in Danville and the surrounding area,” says Kristen Rojas, OTR/L, Occupational Therapist and Executive Director of Center for Pediatric Therapies.
Accreditation is just one factor considered when placing children with Autism in alternative schools. For her 6-year-old son Kaleb, Teresa Hyler feels that “Building Blocks was the only option for us.” Hyler values the fact that the Building Blocks school offers one-on-one attention, and that students are all age 14 and under. Most importantly to Hyler, Building Blocks offers the only local school dedicated to children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Read more about the Hyler family’s experiences here…
Thank you and congratulations to the staff, students, families and friends who were involved and supportive throughout the accreditation process!
