What is Applied Behavior Analysis?

Our Treatment Process

We understand the unique needs of each child and strive to provide aFUN, collaborative, interactive and effective treatment. Our initiatives are tailored to support and enhance the developmental journey of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other related conditions.

In this model, the whole needs of the child are considered and addressed including diagnosis and ABA evaluations, ABA therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language pathology, physical therapy, feeding and swallowing therapy, and family guidance. For example, a child who has restricted eating habits may appear to be having severe problem behavior when offered new foods. When addressed from a behavior analytic perspective, only the behavior is addressed. In this model, if there is another underlying issue, treatment can force the child into a high stress and traumatic situation. When Speech/Language Pathology and Occupational Therapy are incorporated, sensory components and oral motor needs will also be evaluated. A more comprehensive, therapeutic and well-rounded treatment plan will be established that will result in more positive gains for the client.

74% of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are likely to have other comorbidities that impact learning, therapeutic treatment and functional skillset development. Many of those comorbidities are outside of the scope of the behavior analyst and require coordination of care across disciplines to consider all factors. Another example would be a child with hypotonia, or low muscle tone. Low muscle tone can lead to difficulty sitting still and concentrating as substantial effort is utilized just on physical management, let alone on skill acquisition. A physical therapist can target this deficit, while also working with the ABA team to find strategies to promote skill acquisition in other areas. By having ABA, Speech/Language Pathology, Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy under one roof, we reduce the burden on the caregiver to coordinate care and increase the opportunities for effective and informed collaboration.

Our treatment initiatives allows children to increase and strengthen peer relationships through participating in group activities that enhance and improve the quality of their interpersonal skills and increase a positive sense of self. All groups are facilitated by experienced Behavior Analysts and are kept small to ensure that the individual needs of our students are being met. We target specific social skills into each purposeful activity we plan. Cooperative games and activities provide a fun interactive way to promote flexibility, kindness, problem solving, communication and teamwork.

We help kids feel the value in playing with others over playing against others. Exchanging and communicating ideas allows kids to benefit from their friends’ strengths and talents. Their ability to cooperate, adapt and genuinely enjoy their peers is going to propel them to succeed in all aspects of life. Research has shown that developing early meaningful and positive peer relationships set the stage for later social interactions and significantly affect happiness and self-esteem.

In this initiative, we strive to go far beyond parent training by offering parenting groups, sibling support groups and family resources. Parenting groups allows families to connect with one another. Sibling support groups help siblings feel included and cared for. Family resources help families gain valuable tools and knowledge. Our goal is to empower the entire family during this journey up the ladder of success.
