Our professionally trained staff demonstrates an inexplicable passion for helping children succeed by celebrating small victories a child makes towards improving his/her quality of life.
Making Learning Fun!
One-on-One ABA Therapy
One-on-one therapy provides the opportunity for staff to maximize learning opportunities for each moment in a child's therapy session. Programs are individualized to meet the child's specific needs, with the end goal being for the child to succeed across all environments, including home, school, and the community.
Group therapy is available when a child has acquired the appropriate skills necessary to succeed in a one-on-one setting, though may still have difficulty transitioning to a classroom setting. Larger staff-child ratios will help maximize independence and classroom readiness skills to facilitate a successful transition for the child.
Parent and Caregiver Training
Parent participation is an essential component to any ABA program, as it helps to maximize progress by helping transfer skills to the natural environments. Parents are invited to observe sessions at any time, and individualized training will take place for each family during their time in ABA therapy.
