What Is ABA Therapy?
ABA therapy for children with autism uses the science of learning and behavior. Our ABA therapy services can help children with autism build important sets of skills across many domains. As children develop, they build a foundation of skills such as:
- Fine and gross motor skills.
- Language and communication.
- Play skills.
- Social skills.
Unfortunately, autism creates many challenges for children as they develop these skills. As a result, many children benefit from early intervention through ABA therapy for toddlers.
The curriculum in our program combines decades of research and years of experience in Applied Behavior Analysis. If you’d like to learn more, click below to see the key elements of our ABA therapy services.
How We Help
The moments following your child’s autism diagnosis can be challenging. Sometimes just knowing where to begin can feel overwhelming, but we are here to help! Our experienced team of clinicians will guide you through the entire process. We can help answer questions such as:
- What is ABA therapy?
- How can therapy help my child?
- Is there any data that shows that ABA therapy is effective?
- Will my insurance cover my child’s therapy?
So wherever you are in the process, we are here to help.
Personalized ABA Therapy Programs
What makes our programs effective is our personalized approach. Unlike some therapy programs, we customize our methodology for each child’s unique needs. Before building a program, we sit down with you and your child. From there, we will show you what a personalized program at EAS looks like and how this individualized approach can make a huge impact.
First, we take the time to understand both your child’s strengths and needs. We do this through a variety of interactive play, conversation and observation. Then one of our Board Certified Behavior Analysts will take that information and build an individualized program. We can help your child develop the skills necessary to reach their fullest potential through early intervention and this personalized program.
