“The Star Academy in South Africa is among the most successful CARD affiliate sites. Star Academy has four centre-based clinics in South Africa, with two in Johannesburg, one in Pretoria, and one in Durban. In an effort to disseminate ABA treatment for children with Autism beyond South Africa, Star Academy also maintains its own affiliate sites in Zimbabwe and Ghana. In addition to providing centre-based ABA intervention, Star Academy clinics also provide home, school, and community-based instruction, as well as training for teachers and aides in the classroom environment. Star Academy continues to shine as an example of how high-quality ABA treatment can be disseminated to regions of the world that previously had little to no treatment available.”
