    Welcome to the Preschool Assessment & Autism Center (PAAC), home of the Wolf PAAC. We strive to provide a high-quality program for preschool students with Autism in a program emphasizing evidence-based Practices based on the principles of  Applied Behavior Analysis.  Our assessment center and school staff strive to provide a high level, standards-based education ensuring all students achieve their full academic potential and become responsible, respectful citizens and leaders in a global society.

    The PAAC has a clear mission, focused on our students’ mastery of the Preschool Standards and to successfully transition our students to General Education.  Our staff is committed to implementing the core instructional programs with fidelity and utilizing effective research-based strategies to improve student achievement. 

    At the PAAC we encourage all parents to become active partners in their child’s education. Through a combined effort, we can prepare students to become lifelong learners and productive members of our community. We believe in our PAAC scholar's ability to succeed when provided with the proper support.  Should you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher.  Working together all of our students succeed! 

    Thank you for entrusting your child to PAAC,
