The Foundation Learning Center
The Foundation Learning Center offers primarily specialized programming to meet the unique needs of students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) who display a spectrum of learning and social-emotional needs, developmental delays, social skills impairment, and communication development needs. The elementary and middle school curricula, in grades K-8, offer subject courses appropriate for elementary through middle school and allow students to meet the requirements of their home school districts. The high school program, in grades 9-12, offers subject courses and experiences focusing on life skills that prepare for independent living.
Ms. Tikita Williams, M.Ed, BCBA, has been dedicated to The Foundation Schools for more than 20 years. She has held a host of varied positions including, but not limited to, Special Education Teacher, Diagnostic Prescriptive Teacher, as well as Education Director. Ms. Williams holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Education and Human Development from The George Washington University, with a focus in the education of students with special needs. She also completed a post-Master’s certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis at George Mason University. In opening The Foundation Learning Center in 2019, Ms. Williams has worked to develop a learning environment structured in the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and evidence-based best practices.
“My goal is to offer all of our students a safe space to grow and develop so that they can have their individually designed best quality of life.”
