I think my child is showing signs of Autism, but do we really need ABA therapy?
Autism diagnosis is fairly common and occurs in about 1 out of every 44 children in the US. An easy first step to take is to try an M-CHAT. This simple screening tool can help you decide if a formalized diagnosis makes sense.
The most important thing to remember is that there is support, and discovering Autism early offers your child the best possible outcomes. Children who receive early assistance greatly outperform those who do not receive help promptly.
One of the most common regrets we hear parents say is, “We wish we would have found help sooner.”
Our Client Advocates can get you started at a pace that makes sense for your family, and if you have any questions, we are happy to assist.
What is ABA Therapy?
Children Succeed When Given the Right Tools
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy helps individuals with Autism increase helpful behaviors and decrease behaviors that are harmful or affect learning. ABA Therapy occurs in a child’s natural environment (such as their home, school, or community) and is focused on revealing pathways for learning and development.
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have had tremendous success in overcoming obstacles and reaching new milestones with early ABA therapy.
The science of ABA therapy is based on positive reinforcement and individualized plans that focus on each child’s strengths. Because each child is so different, the treatment team spends time learning about your child and asking questions about their interests and challenges. Once we know more about your family, we can design a plan focused on the key areas to help your child succeed.
Children can learn and adapt at their own pace by making tiny, incremental changes and rewarding success.
Whether your child is non-verbal, aggressive, or simply having a hard time trying new things, we have proven ways to help.
