Our early intervention program provides a highly individualized approach that allows your child to progress at his or her own pace. We tailor the program specifically for your child’s needs and goals.

Individualized 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. So our therapy plans are always customized, and they allow clients to work toward mutually agreed-upon goals.   Our 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 and familyobserving and recording behavioral data that will help the BCBA create targeted programs. Each session is customized specifically to the child’s needs and family’s goals.

What to Expect

A typical course of ABA therapy involves 20-40 hours a week for 1-3 years. 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 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 behavior, new 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 center for autism care 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 behavioral 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 your child. 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 child’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.
