Adult ABA Therapy

ABA therapy is typically sought for early interventions with young children. But older children and adults with autism spectrum disorder can benefit from ABA Therapy as well, and treatment options for them are often scarce. Government assistance typically ends at age 22.

Our Adult ABA Therapy Treatment Program helps people on the spectrum improve social and daily living skills while preparing them for independent living or post-academic life. We can give clients confidence through learning specific skills like dining out, shopping or using transportation.

How Does ABA Therapy Help Adults with Autism?

Whether the client has had Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy in the past or is new to the idea, ABA therapy can offer new skills to deal with real-world challenges. Our adult programs are designed to give clients confidence by working toward agreed-upon goals for independent living, handling social gatherings, cooking and more. ABA therapy can be a great complement to other forms of treatment, such as occupational therapy.

ABA therapy is also effective in developing “soft skills,” like nonverbal communication, understanding other people’s perspectives, and working in a team.

ABACA’s Approach

Individualized Adult ABA Therapy

ABA Centers of America doesn’t believe in a “one size fits all” treatment program. Our clients are individuals, and each of them is experiencing the world in a unique way. Our therapy plans are always customized, and they allow clients to work toward mutually agreed-upon goals. At the heart of our treatment philosophy is our goal to provide only scientifically valid, evidence-based treatment that will be meaningful to the individual.

Our ABA treatment begins with a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) getting to know the client and family. They will conduct an assessment to determine recommended program goals. A Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) will then work with the client, observing and recording behavioral data that will help the BCBA create targeted programs. Each session is customized specifically to the client.

What To Expect

ABA Therapy programs are designed by our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and conducted by our Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs). Both are governed and licensed by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB).

Assessment

Our treatment begins with a BCBA getting to know your family, learning what positive behaviors you’re interested in improving and conducting an assessment to measure skills and abilities.

Goal Setting

Using the results from the assessment, our BCBAs collaborate with the family to create specific, reachable objectives to address desired skills and recommended goals.

Custom Planning

The BCBA develops a program to teach target skills. Then an RBT works directly with the clients to implement the agreed-upon therapy and collect critical data.

Evaluation

The BCBA and RBT work together, measuring targeted skills and making changes to the program if necessary.

Available Services

  • In-home ABA Therapy
    Our autism-care therapists bring their expertise to the environment where the client is most comfortable—home.
  • Clinic Services
    Our facility is a good environment for ABA Therapy when in-home treatment is not convenient. Our therapists make sure clients are comfortable and see our clinic as a place where they come to learn from friends.
  • Telehealth
    We can work with clients and families to create an effective remote program or a hybrid with some telehealth and some in-person therapy.
  • Caregiver Training
    For one to two hours a week, you’ll absorb the basics of Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy as you work with your ABA specialist and the client. We emphasize “caregiver” in our training programs because we feel it’s essential to work with anyone and everyone who is a significant presence in the client’s life.
  • Community Life Skills
    We provide training that helps people with autism deal with the demands of daily life. The training often involves real-life settings like the grocery store or a social outing to help people with autism function with as much independence as possible.
