Learning Center

The Tate Learning Center Day Program is a Special Education Day School providing state of the art, progressive ABA and language-based programming for students ages 3-22 who are needing to make significant behavioral progress.

We believe that everyone can learn and that all students can be empowered to achieve their full potential.

Designed to meet our student’s dynamic needs, we provide both center and community-based instruction in 1:1 and small group formats. Our hybrid instruction model promotes generalization across settings and allows students to use and apply skills right away. 


The day program operates from 9 am - 3 pm Monday through Friday. In some cases, transportation is provided by staff. All students are provided with a 1:1 instructor and Special Education teacher services, Behavior Analyst support, and Speech Language and/or AAC services. Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Vision specialist services can also be provided on site. 


Curriculum is aligned with the Massachusetts frameworks as part of the IEP process and takes into account the specific learning needs, interests, culture and background of the student. We prioritize the consent/assent of each student as we proceed with instruction and believe that the most meaningful teaching and learning happens only when students are relaxed, engaged and joyful.

  • 1:1 instruction
