of Excellence


Educational programs for children
and young adults with Autism

The Florida Autism Center of Excellence (FACE) uses ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) across all content areas and environments to not only prepare our students academically, but also socially and behaviorally for life out of school. We serve students ages 3-22 in academics, social skills, communication, life skills, and vocational skills. Our Board Certified Behavioral Analyst and Registered Behavior Technicians work collaboratively with teachers, administration, related service providers, and parents to ensure the needs of our diverse students are met on a daily basis. Come and see how we work to help out students FACE their future with success.

Memories from our STUDENTS, Parents, & Staff

“Some of my favorite memories of FACE include showing people silly stuff and earning my pictures. I like scary movies, sharks, dinosaurs, and heroes. In the future I am looking forward to being a movie director. I also make movie logos and kid show sponsors. I am proud to be part of this school.”

Laura Anne Preslar

Former Student

“Our son has grown up with FACE, since he was 5 years old. He will be 20 in December. It’s incredible to believe that one school could meet his needs for so many years. The challenge he brought was accepted from the wiggly, little boy who couldn’t sit for longer than 10 seconds to the puberty driven 13-year-old who needed help with every personal care tasks. We have never questioned our decision to place Jacob at FACE. 

The Guthrie Family

Current Student Family

“Working at FACE has been so rewarding. I love being able to use my knowledge of ABA to help our students achieve academic and behavioral success. The FACE community is amazing and it’s evident that our students are our passion.”
