Passionate About Potential

Since the creation of EAS in 2008, we’ve helped children with autism through proactive, individualised ABA therapy programs that allow kids and their families to work together with licensed professionals. We offer autism therapy in Melbourne and have multiple locations across the United States and India.

Our team of behaviour therapists, board-certified behaviour analysts and caring individuals strives to provide the best ABA therapy in Australia. As a team, our primary purpose is to help children with autism and their families in any way we can.

Importance of Pre-Academic Readiness

Going to school for the first time is a big step for any child. Even before your child formally attends school, they learn a lot from their surroundings and through observation. Children with autism may have difficulty with these skills or need assistance developing the abilities required for learning. With our pre-academic readiness, your child will ‘learn how to learn’ to succeed in school. Some skills we focus on include:

  • Attending: Many children with autism find it difficult to focus throughout an entire task due to being unable to filter out other distractions around them. Our therapists will work with your child to slowly increase the time they can attend an activity without leaving or becoming distracted.
  • Sitting: Many children with autism find it difficult to sit throughout an entire task. By working on sitting skills, your child’s attending abilities may also see an improvement.
  • Eye contact: Helping your child improve their eye contact skills is essential for learning and interacting with their peers. Through positive reinforcement, our therapists will help your child learn to effectively make eye contact.
  • Following instructions: If your child is experiencing any delays in developing their communication skills, it may be difficult for them to follow instructions. Our therapists will first help your child follow basic instructions before gradually working up to more complex requests.
