Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental & neurological disorder characterized by difficulties in social skills, communication (both verbal and nonverbal), and the presence of repetitive behaviors. It is a diverse spectrum, leading to varying degrees of impact on individuals. Autism typically emerges in early childhood and affects the way individuals interact with others and perceive the world around them.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a type of therapy that centers on improving communication, language and socially significant behaviors primarily used to treat individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disorders. ABA is an evidence-based intervention that focuses on identifying the cause of a behavior and focuses on increasing deficits such as communication, language, social skills, play and leisure skills while decreasing challenging behaviors. In addition, ABA therapy focuses on implementing strategies that can be generalized to caregivers.
An initial assessment will be conducted to understand your child's current skill set. Assessments are conducted by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
A BCBA will develop a treatment plan that will focus on targeting program goals and objectives that will increase your child's skill acquisition and reduce challenging behaviors.
The evaluation of your child's progress is ongoing. Adjustments to treatment plans will be made as needed. Progress reports will be shared with parents and insurance.
