The Institute for Educational Achievement (IEA) is a private, non-profit educational program for children, adolescents, and adults with autism. At IEA, we provide highly individualized instruction based on the science of Applied Behavior Analysis. Our goal is to teach all learners the skills necessary for them to lead independent, productive, and happy lives. Instructional activities take place at school, at home, and in the community. Children learn critical academic, language, play and social skills. Adolescents build upon those skills and learn how to independently care for themselves, structure their time, and participate more fully in community activities. And, adults are taught to capitalize on all of the skills they have acquired and focus on integrating and using those skills to be gainfully employed, to complete daily tasks, and master home living routines. The goal for all of our students is the achievement of maximum independence, happiness, and prosperity.
Since its founding in 1995, IEA has remained committed to providing individuals with autism a much needed educational experience. As a dissemination site of the Princeton Child Development Institute (PCDI), a world leader in research and autism treatment, IEA employs the organizational and educational model that has proven to be effective through four decades of applied practice and research.
IEA is committed to ensuring the best family and life experience for our students and those affected by autism. As such, IEA uses scientifically validated teaching procedures in the Education and Adult Programs, but also at home with the learners and their families through our intensive Home Programming services. IEA also actively conducts research, disseminates important information to the community, and provides support to the autism community at large. All of our efforts focus on ensuring that individuals with autism achieve their full potential.
