Bridges Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) Program

Students in the Bridges program participate in weekly swim lessons at Juniper Swim and Fitness Center.

The High Desert Education Service District partners with our Early Childhood Special Education program and Bend-La Pine Schools and to provide behavior-based strategies for teaching young children (ages 2-9) with autism and other disabilities.  Using a process called Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), the partnership serves children with autism spectrum disorders, as well as those with behavioral disorders and intellectual disabilities.
