What We Do
Step Ahead specializes in working with students with mild to moderate learning
disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorders. We are located in Carlsbad.
We offer a variety of specialized services to meet your child's individual
needs: assistance to students experiencing school difficulties; working
on social skills with those who struggle with making friends; and helping young
adults transition into living and working on their own.
Our program understands the importance of incorporating a variety of creative teaching styles and strategies in order to meet the unique needs and challenges of each individual student. We use innovative and multi-sensory based techniques, along with specialized movements, yoga and exercise to promote learning throughout the day. Our students learn how to build on their strengths, talents and abilities, and overcome their weaknesses. Our goal is to give students the skills they need for lifelong learning and success.
