SERVICES

  • Behavior Analysts assess child’s current level and abilities and work with parents to develop goals.

  • An individual program is created based on your child’s strengths and skill deficits.

  • Programs are comprehensive, including academics (colors, letters, reading, etc.), daily living skills, social skills (sharing, turn-taking, joining play, etc.), developmental skills (pretend play, how to play with toys), and a constant, strong emphasis on communication skills.

  • Interventionists work directly with the client to teach new skills so that problematic habits can be replaced by productive behaviors.

  • Our Interventionists arrive fully equipped with everything they need to conduct a therapy session and log data. Parents provide a space to work in.

  • Sessions are approximately 2-5 hours in length, depending on location and program goals.

  • Sessions can be scheduled anywhere from once a week, to every day, depending on the child’s needs and the fit for the family.

  • Intensive Summer Programs are also available.

  • While there are many skills that children with autism need to be taught, teaching skills is not enough for a child to be successful. Our services not only include comprehensive programming for the child, but also support and training for the parents and the inclusion of other family members. 

ABA therapy includes:

  • Assessment for determining skill level and program goals

  • Individualized program with detailed progress data tracking

  • Clinic-based or in-home sessions provided by highly trained interventionists using our specialized materials

  • Family consultation to analyze problem behaviors, develop behavior interventions, and teach parenting skills

Who can benefit from ABA therapy:

  • Young children who have received a diagnosis of Autism

  • Children who have received a diagnosis of another disability

  • A child who is struggling with potty training

  • Children who need 1:1 support with learning new skills

  • A child struggling in school or with homework

  • An older child who has difficulty with friends

  • Parents who want more skills or feel out of control

  • Families in crisis

What family involvement looks like:

  • Our whole-family program includes siblings, parents, peers, extended family, and others involved in the child’s life.

  • Interventionists can teach the skill first during a one-on-one session, then allow the child to practice the new skill with siblings, parents, and neighborhood friends.
