We’ve Seen Impressive Progress Using a Combination of Proven Services.
Over time, we’ve discerned what types of treatments are most effective for targeting maladaptive behaviors and encouraging improvement in young children.
ABA Therapy begins at home. Your home.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is a scientifically validated approach for treating those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and is the most widely used intervention. Therapy is more accepted and effective when working with your child in a familiar setting – your home. Our holistic and collaborative approach involves parental input every step of the way and helps us design the most effective program for each child. We also collaborate closely with teachers and other therapists to implement our holistic treatment model. We determine how many days and hours per day while tracking progress based on our team’s weekly reports.
The Sooner, the Better.
Early intervention is a critical component for successful outcomes. Remarkably 90% of a child’s brain develops by the age of 5. In the first year alone, a child’s brain doubles in size, and by age three, their brain is 80% of an adult’s. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy implemented as early as possible can offer life-changing outcomes for children diagnosed with ASD. ABA’s intensive treatment adapts to each child’s specialized needs allowing for the most effective results. We also collaborate with teachers and other therapists with a holistic model to ensure your child benefits from this cohesive program. The sooner your child begins a proper treatment program, the sooner they can succeed. There is no greater gift than sharing a life-changing moment with our clients and families – each one engrained in our hearts. Let us help your child by reaching out to us today.
Managing the ‘Unmanageable’.
Our dedicated team uses a collaborative approach in providing function-based treatment to identify and reduce severe problem behavior. We adapt our model as needed to maximize effective strategies and achieve transformative outcomes. Our expertise cultivated over years of first-hand experience allows us to offer successful solutions for both your child and family.
Controlling continence is essential for a person’s health and well-being and a path to adulthood and independence. Our technicians use a proven Rapid Toilet Training protocol, including positive reinforcement procedures, to attain long-term success. Our approach involves exercises consisting of controlled fluid intake, scheduled toilet sitting, and redirections for accidents. With this program, parental involvement is critical to ultimately reach the goal of assisting your child in initiating proper toileting behavior and readiness.
Many triggers. One Therapy.
It’s common for children with autism to be sensitive to certain foods’ taste, smell, color, or texture. This sensitivity can result in nutritional deficits. We’ve found success working through these behavioral triggers using a graduated exposure model. Our team assesses your child’s food preferences then gradually introduces a multi-step priority list to help increase your child’s food choices. Through treatment, along with consistency, persistence, and patience, we’ve seen many children graduate from a few preferred foods to a willingness to experiment with new food choices. As with all our services, feeding therapy relies heavily on family involvement. As our team and your family work together, your child can achieve remarkable results.
Connecting words with purpose.
Many children diagnosed with ASD experience delays or communication struggles, some nonverbal. By utilizing ABA principles and the work of behaviorist B.F. Skinner, Verbal Behavior (VB) therapy can help achieve success for nonverbal children by teaching them how words can get desired objects or results, not just using words as labels. Time, consistency, and patience yield considerable progress in your child’s communication and verbal skills, eventually improving to more complex words and meanings.
We Join You at School.
Consistency and commitment in your child’s therapy are critical to achieving positive results. Our holistic approach involves close collaboration with your child’s school. One of our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) attends Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings and additional school meetings to ensure your child is achieving their maximum potential both in the home and school setting.
It’s Important That We Sit-In.
We partner and collaborate with your speech and Occupational Therapy provider while attending sessions with you and your child. While observing these sessions, our team can address or offer guidance since these often involve verbal, handwriting, fine motor, and daily living skills. Since some behaviors may arise during these external sessions that could impact your child’s progress, we must work in unison to benefit your child’s success.
