Unlocking the capabilities of kids with autism
We believe all children, regardless of ability, should have access to an exceptional education within a nurturing environment to thrive at their optimal potential.
Back in 2000 the Victory Center began with Barry and Judi Nelson filling the autism educational gap for their son. Today we can unlock the capabilities lying within each child, and with our new Victory Center opening in 2018, we’re looking to help many more.
The Victory Center combines highly effective intensive training with frequent opportunities for facilitated social interactions within its own classrooms or with the typical preschool on campus. Progress is measured at regular intervals and our daily goal is help our students and their families reach their highest potential.
Our students are as varied as the spectrum of abilities within autism. New students we receive typically are:
Each student at the Victory Center can thrive through 1:1 attention that enables us to customize the learning, therapy and interactions they receive as individuals.
From the first week school started, I noticed a change in my son Dylan! He was FINALLY happy!!!! He was excited to go to school! His confidence level was boosted to an unbelievable level!!! I love the teachers!!! Ms. Tiffany, Ms. Tracy, and Mr. Andres!!! Truly are a blessing and the best at what they do!!!
I have worked with many different autism centers to promote and publish research. The Victory Center is at the top of my list in terms of its research potential. Why do research in autism? The impact of research can be huge. Not only can The Victory Center provide cutting-edge treatment to clients it serves, but sharing this knowledge via research publications can have an amazing cascading effect to benefit millions of other kids with autism.
Our family has been very pleased with our experience at the Victory Center. It is truly one of the top institutions of its type in America, if not the world. Our son has been at the Victory Center (TVC) for three years and we could not be happier with his progress. Our son was diagnosed with PDD (pervasive developmental disorder) a form of autism, many years ago and we have struggled to provide him with the best education available. He has steadily improved at TVC, progressing from a pure vocational programme to a more academic curriculum. The beauty of this is that it was his teacher that saw the potential in Johnathan and advocated for him to do more, be challenged more and try the academic program. The teachers and staff are first class, very professional, work very hard every day to keep the school funded and show that they truly care. When Johnathan has behavior, aggression and things are not going so well; the expressions of sadness on their faces tell us that they truly care about the students and the families and they know how hard it can be to raise children with developmental and/or behavioral challenges. Another thing we like about TVC is that they have programs for adults which not many other institutions offer. We are delighted with our experience at TVC and we can relax because they have a programme for our son for the next several years, so we don’t have to worry about what programme we must put him in after he is 22 years old. It is very expensive to provide this level of care and the fees are what they must be, but we hope that their fundraising efforts are successful, because they are truly serving and blessing many families, giving us all hope that our children will be ok
Our son has made great strides, beyond our expectations, since he started at The Victory Center. He’s in a school that truly cares about each and every student. Their love and patience are remarkable. If you want your child to be in a caring environment, then The Victory Center should be your choice.
Que el 2020 les traiga la recuperación de todos los niños de Victory Center. El dìa 31 de diciembre 2019, a las 12 de la noche mi nieto me llamó y me dijo “Felicidades Abuela;” eso se lo debemos a Uds.
It was with great pride and emotion to be part of the Aventura marketing council breakfast, and see One of your students, Jon-Carlos speak as a representative of the Victory school. It was truly a moment you can all be proud of , to see the fruits of your labor exemplified by Jon-Carlos. Having one of your students get up and speak in front of a room full of adults and peers speaking with poise and dignity, is nothing short of a miracles . Thank you sounds trite, in comparison to the accomplishment. Keep up all the Miracles you and your staff create on a daily basis. . You all have much to be proud of.
What makes The Victory Center special is if I look at Benjamin and look at how much he grew. From riding a bike to being able to cook, to being able to read. I feel he would not have had that, and then what would his life have been like,
