Eden Autism Services, a national center of excellence and primary resource for autism information, education, training and support services for individuals with autism, families, educators and healthcare professionals, is excited to announce a strategic partnership with ABPathfinder to provide Eden’s highly acclaimed Eden Assessment and Curriculum in an interactive, online version called The Eden Curriculum, powered by ABPathfinder. ABPathfinder, based in Kansas City, develops software solutions to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of cognitive disorder therapy, allowing Eden to provide its curriculum content on an online subscription basis.
An excellent enhancement to Eden’s distinguished Assessment and Curriculum series, The Eden Curriculum, powered by ABPathfinder, allows for accurate data collection, graphing and reporting on each student’s progress. The electronic format frees up valuable time for therapists by virtually eliminating paperwork, decreasing the chance for human error, and allowing ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) therapists to more effectively and efficiently build a complete analytical database and therapy program for each child they work with.
“We’re excited to be partnering with one of the leading institutions in the field of autism,” says Jeff Blackwood, President and CEO of ABPathfinder. “By combining The Eden Curriculum with ABPathfinder’s technology, we can ensure that therapists and educators have the tools they need to provide a complete and effective therapy program for children on the autism spectrum.”
Any educational program that subscribes to The Eden Curriculum powered by ABPathfinder will be provided with the ability to assess individual student needs, build focused therapy plans and develop day-to-day teaching programs based on the specific needs of each student. Each volume of Eden’s curriculum has a separate assessment that guides teachers and therapists to identify a student’s current skill level and select goals and objectives. The solution also tracks a student’s progress through the curriculum, recommends remediation skills to ensure retention, and automatically assembles progress data onto in-depth graphs for use by therapists and educators. In addition, subscribers will have the opportunity to purchase monthly consultation hours and training from Eden’s staff of certified therapy professionals at a highly competitive rate.
“This incredible partnership brings autism education to a whole new level. Educators from all over the country have benefitted from the nearly 40 years of knowledge that Eden staff has acquired and put into its five-volume school series curriculum and infant and toddler curriculum,” says Nina Finkler, Director of Eden Outreach. “Now they can get those same benefits with the added capabilities of this terrific software tool. We're pleased to offer this solution to assist educators in providing effective therapy to children with autism.”
