Who We Are

Comprehensive Kids Developmental School (CKDS) is a private school located in lower Manhattan specializing in the treatment of autism spectrum disorder utilizing the principles of applied behavior analysis. At CKDS individually tailored instruction is provided for children and adolescents with a diagnosis of autism ages 3 to 21. Our highly trained instructors implement intervention grounded in data-based, scientific research across all content areas including academics, language, social, behavioral and life skills.

We foster a team atmosphere, supporting our families in helping them to understand the special needs of their children through family training in applied behavior analysis. With this partnership we are able to help all our children achieve their full potential.


The mission of CKDS is to educate children with Autism through the treatment of developmental, social, and behavioral challenges using evidence-based strategies grounded in the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

Each child receives one-on-one instruction, which capitalizes on individual strengths, learning styles, and preferences. We aspire to empower children on the autism spectrum to achieve their highest potential and live independent, fulfilling lives.


Every child has the potential to develop skills beyond their current level. Utilizing the evidence-based research of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) leads to the best possible learner outcomes. Developing independent communicative, and self-determined learners is of the utmost importance.
