Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

ABA is the use of techniques and principles to bring about meaningful and positive change in behavior. This class of intervention includes techniques such as prompting, shaping, differential reinforcement and chaining. ABA services include center-based services for children ages 18 months to 14 years of age.

Social Learning Opportunities and Groups

Social learning opportunities are designed to facilitate social skills development in a structured, fun and supportive environment for children with social challenges related to an autism spectrum or related developmental disorder. On both individual and small group levels, we utilize trained neurotypical peer group volunteers to assist in the social development process of our clients.
