Special Connections Academy is a special education school for children with autism and related disabilities in South Florida. We integrate education and healthy development through individualized curriculums and meaningful relationships.
The Developmental, Individual Differences, Relationship-Based model (DIR®/Floortime™) addresses the way processing challenges affect an individual's development in the areas of learning, socialization, communication and behavior.
