The Big Kid Academy (BKA) program serves school-aged children and is customizable in order to meet the growing needs of students with varied skills and abilities. This program focuses on increasing functional independence and self-management skills to help students be successful in a variety of settings. This program also serves as a transition for children who have aged out of our Early Learning Academy to fade supports and prepare them to enter less restrictive environments in their school and community.

​"At BKA, we address every aspect that impacts a child's quality of life in an environment that allows them to interact with their peers. It is such a joy to watch them blossom as individuals while also making meaningful connections with friends!"
- Danielle Skala, Clinical Director
OOTKS ABA Therapy and school readiness programs
