An Educational Prescription for Individuals with Autism

The Autism Curriculum Encyclopedia (ACE) is the culmination of over 35 years of research and practice conducted at The New England Center for Children (NECC), a leader in the fields of ABA and autism. The ACE provides an interactive database containing assessment tools, lesson plans, teaching materials, and student performance reports for over 1,300 skills drawn from the curriculum used at NECC.

The ACE is designed to provide teachers, administrators, and other school professionals with easy access to applied behavior analytic procedures and an effective and efficient way to aggregate and understand student performance data. Every lesson plan within the ACE can be customized to the learning profile of the individual student being taught. Thus, this web-based curriculum fills an enormous need for an easy-to-access, comprehensive and rigorously tested resource allowing teachers and schools to provide effective and individualized services to their students.



Our assessments provide teachers and service providers with a clear indication of where to begin instruction and how to motivate learners.
