ABA/Verbal Behavior Therapy

The therapy we provide is based on the principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). We work with children in their natural environment using a combination of discrete trials and incidental teaching. For our younger children, our approach emphasizes a combination of intensive direct one-on-one instruction for teaching the pre-requisites skills needed to transition to pre-school, and supervised exposure to typical developing peers at school or planned playdates for an opportunity of increasing children’s social skills.  As the children acquire the pre-requisite skills for attending school and relating with peers, they will spent more time in the classroom and support will be faded gradually based on progress. For our older children, we work one-on-one with them to improve the academic skills needed to succeed in their school environment.
