The Autism and Behavior Center provides clinic based 1:1 ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) services. Intensive ABA provides 20-35 hours per week of one-to-one ABA therapy for young children with an autism spectrum disorder.
ABA intervention is an empirically supported intervention that research has shown to make dramatic gains in the lives of children with autism. Traditional ABA programs are exceptional at teaching static or rote skills. The Autism and Behavior Center integrates Applied Behavior Analysis with Developmental and Cognitive Theories to provide a comprehensive treatment approach in order to teach skills and remediate more complex social emotional and behavioral deficits with the goal of ensuring generalization of learned skills.
Staff provide direct services to the child in a systematic manner. All sessions are conducted that the Autism and Behavior Center and are typically two to three hours in duration. Each session is designed to meet a child’s individual needs. Applied Behavior Analysis is used to address behavior and teach social, language, cognitive, and self help skills.
