Puzzle Box Academy was founded in 2014 by Pamela Furr and James Holz. Pamela, a mother of a child with Autism, saw the need for high-quality early intervention. They set out to provide a school where families could rely on their children getting the special attention, they deserved without the obstacles most families face in the public schools. Pamela believed families should be able to focus on what is important at home; confidence, security, love, and acceptance of our children's quirks. Families should not have to battle the system for the special environments their children need to thrive. The mission of Puzzle Box Academy is to provide comprehensive, individualized, science-based education not available in our community. We believe children with developmental delays, like autism, deserve the opportunity to reach their full academic and social potential. The school’s curriculum combined with the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis, provides effective treatment and education programs to children and their families. We also make our facility available for Speech and Occupational Therapy from other providers. Puzzle Box Academy is the first school in Florida to provide the Morningside Academy Curriculum and teaching mythology in addition to following the Florida State Standards. The Morningside Model of Generative Instruction combines precision teaching of specific basic skills through guided intensive instruction and practice followed by opportunities for generalizing learning to the wider world. Through this evidence-based model, complex behavioral skills emerge without explicit instruction when well-selected component responses are appropriately sequenced, carefully instructed, and well-rehearsed.

This is an amazing school. Yes there has been turn over, as change is good for a developing business. It is important to ensure they company has the right staff. In the end the changes were for the best. The employees are like family and the students and their families are an extension to that family. Puzzle Box Academy now has a partnership with Dr. Salinas. She is amazing, especially with children. She is working with Puzzle Box Academy and our families to provide assessments and diagnosis for children who would normally have to wait for 3-6 months. Please ignore the negative post from my ex-husband who creates fake accounts and attacks anyone with whom I’m associated. He is a professional con artist who has warrants in MD, WV and NC. In WV he is wanted for 7 felony counts for his actions against myself, my grandmother and our son. Part of his felony charges were forging my signature, which yes I was arrested at first and then listed as another victim. This man will stop at nothing to discredit people and businesses he does not know. If proof is needed just search my name, as articles were written about his actions. Again, Puzzle Box Academy and Dr. Salinas are amazing and they help families every day. I am proud to know and work with Puzzle Box Academy and Dr. Salinas. Don’t let fake reviews deter you from getting the help you or your family may need. Stephanie Furr

Grateful and thankful for PBA & KI! We have gained some sanity back into the household not to mention life as a whole. He is excelling so fast at academics, social skills and problem behaviors are at a all time low. There was no doubt in my mind that with ABA and the right therapist and teachers he would excel. The worst fight was gaining access to ABA, finding the right place and paying for it. PBA & KI are very caring, compassionate and equipped to do the job.

Every single person, the owners, teachers, therapists, teacher assistants, bus driver, office staff and every single parent we’ve met are awesome. We are all more like a family. My son Joshua has flourished here at Puzzle Box Academy. This place has been a Godsend and the owners are just beautiful people in every way. I thank God for directing us here.
