A Message From Our Co-Founders
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) aims to identify environmental variables that shape and influence behavior. Because Autism affects language development, maladaptive behaviors such as frequent tantrums, aggression and noncompliance can arise. Through analyzing and understanding these behaviors, ABA provides tools to help
families address behavioral difficulties while helping children learn functional language,
communication and social skills.
Whether your child has limited verbal skills, unclear speech, difficulties following
directions, or a restricted expressive vocabulary, speech therapy can address the
communication difficulties that are often at the root of problem behaviors such as
tantrums and aggression. For older children whose language is more developed, speech interventions can help address more subtle communication concerns.
Occupational therapy can help children across all areas of development including
physical, sensory, motor, social, emotional, and behavior. The goal of occupational therapy is to support health and participation in life through engagement in everyday tasks and routines. For children these daily living skills can include toileting, grooming,
eating/mealtime routines, education, play, and social participation.
