NUAP vs. Partners?

I know there are a few of you whose children have attended the Northern Utah Autism Program (NUAP). Is there anyone who has gone to Partners? We're trying to figure out which is the best option for our son, Tanner. He's been accepted to both so now we have the difficult task of choosing where to send him. It sounds like the main differences between the two programs (which are right next door to each other in the same building) are that NUAP uses Attending programs while Partners is based on Applied Behavioral Analysis, and that Partners is a model school so other educators come in to observe.

If any of you have any suggestions/preferences, we'd love to hear what you have to say. If you have personal experiences to share, please do. Or, if you've heard things from others about either of these programs, we'd love to hear them too.

Definately Definately DEFINATELY definately definately choose Partners. I can't say it enough! NUAP is good too, but not near the one on one that Partners offers. Partners can only take 3-6 new kids a year, and it is hard to get into. If your child is chosen, you are reallu lucky. If you don't choose it, other parents will be thrilled for the opportunity. Mason went for two years, and it is THE BEST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO HIM!!!! Seriously, you can't pass up the opportunity. Email me with questions. markerthree(at)yahoo (dot)com

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
