ABA Therapy

Applied behavior analysis is a scientific approach utilizing behavioral procedures to decrease skill deficits in multiple areas including language, social, and adaptive skills. A treatment plan is created to address skill deficits and behavior excesses. This plan is then implemented by a behavior technician with support from the supervisor level.

Caregiver Training 

Caregivers may include parents, siblings, teachers, other therapists, or anyone that may be interacting with the child. Clients spend more time with caregivers than therapists, so it is important that the caregiver is utilizing ABA techniques with every opportunity. Caregiver training cannot only assist with current behaviors, but also provide caregivers with skills to address any additional behaviors or concerns that may occur in the future.

Intensive Therapy

Intensive therapy is 26-40 hours/ week. Clinical studies have shown ABA to be most successful when intensely applied for more than 20 hours a week and prior to the age of 4.

Focus Therapy

Focus therapy is 25 hrs/ week or less. This program is more short-term and time-limited than comprehensive interventions.

The supervisor identifies the program needs, the caregiver is crucial for a successful intervention, and together we collaborate as a dream team to ensure progress by the client.
