Frequently Asked Questions
Whether you are looking for support for a child, young adult, family member or caregiver, we are here to make your journey as smooth as possible. We look forward to hearing from you should you have additional questions or wish to learn more about our services.
What is ABA?
ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) uses evidence-based research to teach individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) skills such as social skills, foundational skills, lifestyle skills, decreasing problem behaviors, and more. ABA is the Gold Standard for Autism treatment. We use the client’s unique motivation to teach skills, capture data on those skills, and then use the findings to teach our students in the way that works best for them.
What is the typical day of the learner?
Each learner’s day will be packed full of real-life learning opportunities. Each learner’s program is unique to their needs, but will likely include all areas of skills, toileting, eating, fine and gross motor movements, peer play, social groups, and group activities. We focus largely on improvements in the natural environment to aid in life transitions.
Who delivers the services?
Our teachers are Registered Behavioral Technicians (RBT) who dedicate their time, patience, and immense energy to presenting multiple trials in all areas throughout the day. Our RBT’s are overseen by BCBA’s (Board Certified Behavior Analysts) who have obtained their master’s degree in Applied Behavioral Analysis.
How does it work?
We use data and research-based intervention methods, as well as peer reviewed journals, and textbooks to create our programs. We use tools like VBMAPP, functional communication training, job skills training, and more to practice our skills until they shine!
Is it expensive?
