ABA Therapy for Children with Developmental Disabilities or Autism
Therapies based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) have been proven to be highly effective for building new skills and reducing problem behaviors. Our individual ABA therapy for children with developmental disabilities and autism includes both in home and center based options with preferably a combination of the two. Your child’s ABA therapy will begin with extensive assessment conducted by our highly skilled BCBA. Based on the results of this assessment, our BCBA will develop an individual plan including incidental teaching opportunities in the natural environment and discreet trials to build needed skills and reduce problem behaviors. Then she will personally oversee your child’s program throughout the course of therapy. The course and pace of therapy will be guided by ongoing data collection and analysis. Our BCBA will consult with you regularly about your child’s progress and how you can support therapy goals at home. You will be a critical and highly valued member of your child’s therapy team! With Hopelight Behavioral Health, your family will experience evidenced based effective therapy in a supportive and caring Christian environment.
