Background Statement

Since 1975 The New England Center for Children has remained true to its founding mission, and has become one of the leading institutions worldwide serving children with autism and their families. In addition to providing proven and highly effective educational services for children with autism, NECC has become an acknowledged leader in research and training in the field, continually advancing the most effective, evidenced-based methods in teaching and care, and training hundreds of professionals who are now providing state-of-the art care and services worldwide.

NECC serves its students on a highly individualized basis, ranging from home-based, day, and residential programs; through model classrooms in partnership with public schools; to consulting services; to a comprehensive new program in Abu Dhabi, UAE. 

As an extension of its commitment to quality and improving practice not only at its own facilities but for other practitioners, as well, NECC has developed the computerized Autism Curriculum Encyclopedia, or ACE®, which translates the broad range of skills and methods developed through NECC’s 35-year research program into a practical, step-by-step program that NECC and other autism services providers can use to ensure highest quality standards and effectiveness in serving students with autism.

Both the research program in general and the ACE in particular are devoted to disciplined, data-driven direct and continuous improvement in NECC’s services to students, teachers, and families. Academic Medical Centers often explain their research program as immediately bringing discoveries from “bench to bedside.” NECC’s research program serves a similar purpose—continually driving toward improved delivery of programs and services, supported by both data and experience.

One of the strengths of the program at NECC is the high caliber and expertise of the NECC staff. This extraordinary group of nearly 800 highly committed professionals includes more than 100 Board Certified Behavior Analysts, more than 200 master’s level educators, and nearly 20 Ph.Ds. 

Through on-site master’s and doctoral programs in partnership with such institutions as Simmons College, Western New England College, and Northeastern University, NECC teaching staff are encouraged and provided the opportunity to advance their knowledge and expertise on a continuing basis.

 


Impact Statement

In FY11 NECC worked hard to achieve its goals as defined in its six-year strategic plan.  
  1. Relating to the quality of our programs, NECC students’ performance on their IEP objectives showed improvement with objectives met or progressing, increasing to 87.8% (compared to 86.4% the previous year) and objectives with insufficient progress decreasing to 9% (compared to 11% the previous year)
  2. A record number of staff participated in one of our graduate programs with a total of 354 staff enrolled. We hosted 65 interns ranging from undergraduate students from local colleges to full-time interns were enrolled in the Semester at NECC/Cooperative Learning program through Hamilton College, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, and the University of Mary Washington. We also hosted eleven international training interns from the University of Ulster in Ireland, ABA Spain, and Brazil
  3. NECC’s research program continues to conduct and disseminate important applied research. This past year we delivered 159 presentations in 15 different venues including several invited presentations at national and international conferences. We also had 17 papers that have been published (11) or accepted (6) for publication by peer-reviewed outlets with several more papers currently under review.
  4. Annual Fund accomplishments in FY 11 included having raised $1.3 million in Annual Fund support and an additional $736,421 in an in-kind software grant
Goals for the current year include:

1.        Ensure the highest quality in all NECC® Programs

2.        Expand the network, reach, affiliation and brand of NECC

3.        Ensure growth by leveraging the intellectual expertise of NECC

4.        Provide appropriate resources for all programs

5.        Build toward long-term sustainability


Needs Statement

The most pressing needs for The New England Center for Children include the five major initiatives outlined in its six-year strategic plan.
  • Completing the Autism Curriculum Encylcopedia (ACE®) project and begin disseminating it world-wide piloting it and bringing it to scale, potentially with external partners;
  • Constructing a new building on the Southborough campus, both to house NECC’s growing research and training programs and to free up urgently needed space in the current building;
  • Exploring modes of expansion through increased consulting and partner classrooms, market research, and pilot projects and programs with identified school districts;
  • Launching a new capital campaign in support of plan objectives—at a level two or three times greater than the successful prior campaign—while maintaining a strong Annual Fund in support of key ongoing programs and seed funding for new initiatives;
  • Improving NECC’s financial position by increasing current assets and reducing long-term debt.

CEO Statement

As I reflect on the past three decades, I am very proud of how far we’ve come: We started as a residential school for six children in 1975, and, now, we have campuses in Massachusetts and Abu Dhabi—not to mention our presence in public schools across the U.S. and worldwide—serving hundreds of children daily.

 

We have grown to employ more than 1,000 faculty and staff members, and we’ve trained more than 1,000 master’s- and doctoral-level educators—an incredible accomplishment, allowing us to “pay it forward” to even more children around the world.

 

We have proven ourselves to be the best at what we do: We are a leader in the field of autism research and education, and much like the nation’s top teaching hospitals, we are conducting research, we are training educators, and we are disseminating our knowledge.

 

We’ve accomplished so much, but we can do so much more, and help so many more children.

 

When we grow, we can provide new and better educational services to our students. We can expand our research program, a program that has provided us with the best evidenced-based methods of teaching children with autism. We can offer even more opportunities for training and professional development, so there are more specialists available to meet the needs of the growing population of children with autism.

 

We can make all of this happen, but only with your financial support.

 

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about The New England Center for Children.


Board Chair Statement

Chances are you know someone whose life is affected by autism. Perhaps it is a cousin, a neighbor, a friend, or if you are like me – maybe it’s you. 
My son was diagnosed with autism almost ten years ago. Unlike most toddlers, my son didn’t speak or even babble. He never pointed at the moon, at a truck – nothing. He didn’t even respond to his name. He walked in circles following the pattern on an oriental rug in the hallway. He turned toy cars and trains over and spun their wheels with his finger. We figured out that he was hungry when he would stand silently next to his high chair. But he wasn’t always silent. He threw frightening tantrums, banging his head on the floor until he bruised his forehead. 
 
Just before his second birthday, he started treatment at The New England Center for Children. Within 8 weeks he responded to his name and began to speak. The teachers taught him how to play normally with cars and trucks and to walk past the hallway rug like a typical boy. By age 3, he attended a typical pre-school with his NECC teacher as his aide. He made his first friend and was invited on his first playdate. Today, he’s a 5thgrader at our local elementary school and is busy planning his laser tag birthday party with his friends. NECC gave our son back to us and we are forever grateful. 
 
My son was lucky. Through The New England Center, he received world class autism treatment.
 
With 1 in 68 children being diagnosed with autism, the need for effective treatment is overwhelming. Millions of children receive little or no treatment. The Center’s mission is to help these children by providing, researching and sharing the most effective, evidence-based methods of teaching children with autism. We have begun raising money to build The Autism Institute, a research and training center where teachers and clinicians from around the world will learn the best methods for treating children wit autism.
 
While there is no cure for autism, it is treatable. My son shouldn’t be one of the lucky few. All children with autism should get the treatment they need. We need your help to do it.

Autism Curriculum Encyclopedia (ACE®)

The Autism Curriculum Encyclopedia® (ACE®) is the culmination of over 35 years of research and practice conducted at the New England Center for Children, a leader in the fields of ABA and Autism.
The ACE is a web-based toolkit providing special educators with an evidence-based program to assess, teach, and evaluate students with autism. ACE provides an interactive database containing assessment tools, lesson plans, teaching materials, and student performance reports for over 1,300 skills drawn from the curriculum used at NECC.
 
The ACE is designed to provide teachers, administrators, and other school professionals with easy access to applied behavior analytic procedures and an effective and efficient way to aggregate and understand student performance data. Every lesson plan within the ACE can be customized to the learning profile of the individual student being taught. Thus, this web-based curriculum fills an enormous need for an easy to access, comprehensive and rigorously tested resource allowing teachers and schools to provide effective and individualized services to their students.

Day Programs

NECC has three day services programs that serve children diagnosed with autism or PDD ages 14 months to 22 years. All programs are full year, 226 days per year. Most of the students in the day services programs reside within one hour of the central school building. Using a combination of discrete trials and incidental learning opportunities, the day services curriculum focuses on communication, academic, social, play and self-help skills. Guided by the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), teachers help young children acquire the skills they need in order to learn naturally from their environments, as typical children do.
 
  • Home-based Program - For children as young as 14 months, this program provides 16-30 hours a week of one:to:one instruction to the child in his/her own home from a NECC teacher.
  • Intensive Instruction Program - For children ages 3-22, this program offers 30 hours per week of 1:1 instruction
  • Day Program - Generally serving students age 15 and older

Public School Services and Consulting

Developed in collaboration with public school administrators, the Partner Program classroom model was developed in 1997 with the goal of bringing high-quality intensive ABA services to the public schools.  This model focuses on working with public schools to develop a comprehensive ABA classroom that meets the standards of best clinical practices, and mirrors the structure and support often found only in private school settings.  In addition to providing high-quality educational services, Partner Program classrooms allow students to be successfully included in their neighborhood schools while also building the skill set of public school staff.
 
NECC also contracts with public school districts for ongoing consultation services providing support to teachers and paraprofessionals serving students with autism in the public school setting. Consult can range from supporting paraprofessionals working 1:1 with a student to supporting a general education teacher in developing classroom systems to promote the education of children with ASD in their class.

Residential Programs

NECC has three residential programs that serve over 120 students ages 3 to 22, from across the United States and several foreign countries. All residential programs operate 365 days per year. While at school, students participate in the full scope of the NECC curriculum of academic, social, communication, and vocational skills as well as physical education. In addition, many students are instructed in the more traditional academic areas of math, reading, science and social studies. The behavioral, data-based program relies on positive reinforcement techniques and all treatments are designed to meet the individual needs of each child.

While in their residences, students are focused on independent living skills, leisure interests, recreation and community activities as well as practicing skills learned at school. 
 

Unique to NECC, teachers work both in the school and in the residences.  Programs taught in the residence are designed to complement the instruction received at the school and incorporate services available in the local community

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
