A program to prepare typical and atypical learners for preschool and kindergarten. It is our goal to teach children skills necessary to be successful in school and home settings.

Get started right away

The Center for Academic Preparation (CAP) will prepare your child to be successful in school and at home.

The Center for Academic Preparation can teach:

  • Communication skills: cooperation, requesting, receptive and expressive language
  • Early academic skills: reading, social skills, handwriting and following instructions
  • Appropriate behaviors to replace tantrums, whining and/or noncompliance

Q: Who will be teaching my child?
A: The teachers in CAP are undergraduate students in the Applied Behavior Analysis program. The students are chosen based on their academic excellence and their career goals to work with children. They have coursework and experience in behavior analysis, psychology, and child development that provides them with knowledge necessary to serve your child. The clinic is supervised during all hours by Kevin Klatt, Ph.D., BCBA-D, WI licensed behavior analyst.

Q: How can I help aid in my child’s skill development?
A: As a caretaker, you will have the opportunity to observe and participate in your child’s sessions, learning skills to help you and your child at home and in the community
