ABA is a science based technique that focuses on behavior that teaches us how behavior works and how learning takes place for a person with Autism. Functional Behavior Assessments (FBA) or other treatment plans are utilized to increase useful or desired behaviors. The use of behavior techniques and principles bring about meaningful and positive changes in behavior. ABA is also utilized to reduce behaviors that may interfere with learning, or be harmful or problematic. It is used to increase language and communication skills and improve attention, focus, social skills, memory and academics.
Early intervention is a system of services that helps babies and toddlers with developmental delays or disabilities. Early intervention focuses on helping eligible babies and toddlers learn the basic and brand-new skills that typically develop during the first three years of life, such as:
physical (reaching, rolling, crawling, and walking);
cognitive (thinking, learning, solving problems);
communication (talking, listening, understanding);
social/emotional (playing, feeling secure and happy); and
self-help (eating, dressing).
For an individual with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), occupational therapy services are defined according to the individual’s needs and desired goals. OT services for individuals with ASD or other developmental delays include evaluation, intervention, and measurement of outcomes.
Occupational Therapists focus on enhancing a child’s participation in (and how they perform):
Regular daily activities of daily living (e.g., feeding, dressing)
“Instrumental” activities of daily living (e.g., eating, sleeping, dressing, safety procedures etc.)
Sensory integration – How well they respond to sounds/voices, prompts, etc.
Education – Improving their learning skills
Play and social participation.
Speech-Language Therapy involves motivating, play-based activities in our center to help your child learn while having fun. Treatment may include helping a child increase their understanding of language and putting words together to communicate ideas. Additionally, a child may need help with the production of sounds, fluency, and addressing pragmatics (social skills).
