Comprehensive Learning Center and AJ Foundation

School

On Wednesday, May 23, 2018, Comprehensive Learning Center held a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for its new school at 444 Jacksonville Road, Warminster. Over 200 guests were in attendance to celebrate the new chapter of the school’s mission. Comprehensive Learning Center, Inc. (CLC) a non-profit corporation, was established in September of 2000 to provide an educational environment committed to ensuring quality, effective instructional and treatment services for individuals with autism. To help meet the needs of each student, CLC’s provides a highly individualized program based on the scientifically-validated procedures of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). CLC is devoted to serving individuals from 3 years of age through adulthood by providing instruction in all academic areas as well as in all aspects of daily life such as increased participation in family and community activities. Prevocational and vocational training experiences are provided for students from age 14 through 21 to prepare for gainful employment in settings where they show the most interest and natural aptitude. Our community-based adult program provides the supports necessary to help individuals participate successfully at home, on the job, and in his or her local community. With the new facility, CLC will allow for program expansion and enhancement. “CLC has been steadily growing for the last 18 years and we are at capacity in our current space. As the number of people on the autism spectrum continues to grow, we are very happy to be able to expand our program and continue to offer a rich educational environment in our new location,” said Cindy Murphy, Executive Director. The history of CLC really begins in 1992. This was the year that Joanne Corless (co-founder) learned that her 2-year-old son, AJ, had autism. Upon relaying his diagnosis, the doctor suggested that an institutional placement would be best for AJ. The Corless family refused to give up on him that easily. Joanne, - a registered nurse - began intensive research and discovered that utilizing the scientifically-validated procedures of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) was the most effective for teaching people with autism. She set up an intensive home-based program for him during his preschool years and he achieved tremendous results. Upon turning school-age however, Joanne discovered that there were no specialized public school programs for students with autism. As a result, AJ was placed in a more general special education classroom and quickly regressed. CLC was established in the following years to meet the unique learning needs of AJ and other children with autism. The success of CLC’s program is directly related to the ongoing support of its sister organization, the AJ Foundation. This non-profit organization conducts fundraising activities to offset the deficit between funding provided and the actual costs of providing services. This year, the AJ Foundation will host four major fundraisers to support the work and mission of CLC.
