Applied Behavior Analysis is an evidence-based therapy that is based on the science of learning and behavior and is recommended as the BEST treatment for children with autism by the US Surgeon General and the American Psychological Association. We conduct a thorough assessment and collaborate with each family to ensure every treatment plan is designed specifically for your child to help them reach their full potential.

What does it mean to give every child a voice? 

All challenging behavior, whether it's crying, hitting, or running out of the room, is a form of communication. If your child is engaging in challenging behavior, they are trying to communicate something and those behaviors are the best way they know how. We must teach alternative methods for them to communicate the same thing in a more appropriate manner, which we do through functional communication training. Their "voice" can be spoken language, sign language, or using PECS cards or an AAC device, but we want to give every child the ability to communicate their wants and needs.

 

Whether your child has challenging behaviors or not, is talking or not, a focus on increasing their functional communication will help with their independence, social skills, academics, and in all areas of their lives.
