History & Mission

Over 40 Years of Excellence in Autism Education

Our mission is to provide you with the very best Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) software and curriculum to maximize the effectiveness of your programs for learners with autism.

The Autism Curriculum Encyclopedia (ACE®) was developed by expert staff at The New England Center for Children (NECC). NECC is a private, nonprofit autism research and education center dedicated to transforming the lives of children with autism worldwide through education, research, and technology.

Science is consistent in showing that early, intensive instruction using the methods of Applied Behavior Analysis helps children with autism learn and reach their maximum potential. For that reason, NECC has developed a wealth of curricula grounded in the principles of behavior analysis and compiled it in a web-based toolkit, the ACE®. In use with all of our students, the ACE® is extremely effective in teaching critical skills to a wide range of individuals with autism.

Developed by Ph.Ds, BCBAs and special educators at The New England Center for Children...

The ACE® includes assessment tools, more than 1300 customizable lesson plans, and data-based reporting systems that ensures each child is reaching high levels of independence.
