EMPOWERING YOUNG LIVES
A closer look at ABA, the gold standard of treatment for children with ASD
WHAT IS ABA?
ABA therapies are designed to identify and modify a child’s behaviors, which includes their actions and abilities, in the context of their environment — the physical and social events that may change or be changed by their behavior.
“How will ABA benefit my struggling son or daughter?”
We apply a variety of ABA tools to modify and replace problem behaviors with more healthy, age-appropriate actions and reactions .
Our behavioral experts will use feeding therapies to help your child overcome their aversion to new foods, expand their diet, and maintain a healthy weight.
Presenting unique challenges for children, ABA therapies help break down this skill into simplified and structured steps that every child can master.
ABA sleep-training techniques will significantly advance your child’s overall development by helping them fall asleep, remain asleep, and get a peaceful night’s rest.
Communication & social skills
ABA therapies help struggling children create and maintain meaningful relationships, navigate conflict, and form new, appropriate social behaviors.
Practical Life Skills
Comprehensive treatments help children with ASD improve focus, memory, IQ, listening ability and more. Where they once struggled to learn, they now celebrate academic success.
A quick guide to the popular and proven ABA techniques employed at our clinic
Discrete Trial Teaching
This therapy involves breaking down skills into small, discrete components and teaching them one-by-one through structured, repetitive ‘drills’, or trials. Each drill consists of a specific instruction or prompt, followed by a response from the learner. Correct responses are reinforced with simple rewards such as a high-five while incorrect responses are ignored or corrected. DTT is often used to teach basic skills such as language, social interaction, and academic concepts.
Pivotal Response Training
Our skilled team is trained in a growing variety of techniques to ensure that your child can get ahead in life
