Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy (ABA) is defined as the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree, and to demonstrate that the interventions employed are responsible for the improvement in behavior. Some ABA therapy sessions involve one-on-one interaction between the behavior analyst and the participant. Group instruction can likewise prove useful. With modified ABA, the therapist spends 10-15 hours per week with the child to allow the child time for other therapies such as speech and occupational therapy.
Related Services – “related services” means such developmental, corrective, and other supportive services that are required to assist a student with a disability to benefit from special education. The pervasive nature of ASD often results in the need for a wide array of services to address the myriad of needs and impact on educational performance. Currently, students with ASD are most likely to receive speech-language therapy, occupational therapy, and behavior management programs
Related Services that we provide include:
Speech-language pathology services
There are different Categories of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ASD is a descriptive umbrella term that encompasses five different diagnostic categories
Despite some similarities in areas of impairment, each category does have unique characteristics and diagnostic criteria. The diagnostic categories within ASD are:
Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS)
Childhood Disintegrative Disorder
Of the five disorders above, autism, Asperger’s Disorder, and PDD-NOS are the most common; Although Rett’s Disorder and Childhood Disintegrative Disorder (CDD) present differently than the other ASDs, the characteristics and educational concerns are similar to those of students with ASD and may benefit from the same practices.
