Classrooms at FOP have a different teacher to child ratios, depending on the needs of the young learners.  For children with autism or related disorders, FOP has created classrooms with the highest levels of support that utilize ABA-based methodology, programming, and assessment, presented by highly-trained instructors.

FOP offers multiple opportunities for all parents to visit the school, attend free workshops, volunteer, and attend progress reports and team meetings.  Parents are always recognized as key participants in their child’s education.
