ABA Therapy

Maybe my child has Autism

I think my child is showing signs… but do we really need therapy?

Autism diagnosis is fairly common and occurs in about 1 out of every 44 children in the US. An easy first step to take is to try an M-CHAT. This simple screening tool can help you decide is a formalized diagnosis makes sense.

But the most important thing to keep in mind… THERE IS support and finding it early offers you and your child the best possible outcomes. Children who receive early assistance greatly outperform those who do not receive support.

One of the most common regrets we hear is parents saying is, “We wish we would have found help sooner.”

Our Client Advocates can get you started at a pace that makes sense for your family, and if you have any questions we are happy to assist.

What is ABA Therapy?

Children succeed when given the right tools

Therapy takes place in a child’s natural environment (such as their home, school, or community) and is focused on revealing pathways for learning and development.

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have had tremendous success in overcoming obstacles and reaching new milestones with early ABA therapy.

The science of ABA therapy is based on positive reinforcement and individualized plans that key in on each child’s strengths. Because each child is so different, the treatment team spends time learning about your child and asking questions about their interests and challenges. Once we know a little more about your family, we can design a plan that is focused on the key areas to help your child succeed.

By making very small, incremental changes and rewarding success, children can learn and adapt at their own pace.

Whether your child is non-verbal, aggressive, or simply having a hard time trying new things, we have proven ways to help.

How do I get started?

This sounds complicated

The good news is that we can help no matter your situation. Whether you already have a formalized diagnosis and have had Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy before OR if you are not even sure where to begin… we can help.

What does therapy look like?

Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs)

BCBAs are specifically trained and certified to perform behavioral interventions. A BCBA is the primary clinician involved in your child’s plan. They will work directly with you and your child and make a plan for how to overcome any challenges or impact any goals.

Behavior Technicians

Behavior Technicians work under the direction of the BCBA. They will spend a lot of time with your child building trust and understanding how to keep them motivated. As treatment begins, the Behavior Technician will implement the BCBA’s plan and record information on successes or failures.

This two person team works together throughout therapy, adjusting the plan to best suit your child.

Meanwhile, your Client Advocate will oversee your case and ensure that everything is progressing.
