1:1 ABA Therapy
We provide effective, evidence-based ABA therapy from our highly experienced team. We provide individualized programs that integrate the goals and needs for each specific child who we work with. Our vastly trained and dedicated therapists will address each child's individual academic and behavioral needs. Therapy sessions (ABA hours) occur in our office where we provide a structured environment using customized treatment plans.
We offer our families home based therapy. Our skilled therapists come out to your home to work with your child. This allows our team the ability to provide treatment for every day situations, working on a variety of important skills.
We provide SEIT services for those of our students that would benefit from 1:1 support in their current classroom environment. Our staff will help facilitate our students' adaptation to classroom routines, transitions, activities, and peer interactions.
We provide training for parents and caregivers on a regular basis so we can ensure that generalization of skills occur outside of our therapy sessions. Research dictates that when parents and caregivers are part of the therapy, outcomes are better. These trainings can occur in our office and/or in the family's home.
We run preliminary assessments to ascertain what area each child excels in and what skills need to be taught. These assessments can be used for insurance purposes as well.
We run indirect/direct assessments including, but not limited to: observation of the child in his/her natural environment, parent/caregiver testimony/feedback, and questionnaires. We then provide program recommendations for providers both at home, and in the community and/or the school setting.
Expert Witness Testimony
We use our years of experience and knowledge of our student's unique situation in order to provide evidence based testimony in any and all court cases related to services for the student
We provide support groups for parents and caregivers in an individual or group setting. Facilitated by a Certified Counselor/ BCBA/LBA, the support group is a safe space to connect with other parents. We will be expanding to provide sibling support groups in the near future.
