The goal of the L&A program is to provide learning experiences which promote positive, adaptive and pro-social behaviors on the part of the student. This is done through positively reinforcing behaviors we would like to see the student develop and use. The negative behaviors are extinguished by teaching and reinforcing appropriate replacement behaviors.

The overall goal is to reduce the external motivators as students gain skills and the motivation becomes intrinsic. This in turn allows for increased successful participation in the less restrictive environment.
