The Alternative Behavioral Learning Environment (ABLE) program provides an enriched and specialized afterschool program for children with developmental disabilities and behavioral challenges who are ages 3 to 21. Board-certified behavior analysts conduct assessments and develop behavior plans. Certified teachers provide academic instruction in science and literacy. The program also provides social skills training, physical fitness activities, cultural arts and recreation activities, case management, and nursing services.
Staff-to-child ratios are based on child’s needs. The program currently operates during the school year from 1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday in accordance with the Broward County School calendar. Hours are extended for early release days. On non-school days, including designated teacher workdays and winter/spring breaks, services are provided from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The ABLE program is funded primarily through the Children’s Services Council of Broward County with support from United Way of Broward County.
