What are some symptoms or indicators of autism?

Symptoms of autism are diverse and fit into many categories. Some of the most common symptoms in all types of ASD are social and behavioral issues. Examples include inappropriate social habits, avoiding eye contact, lack of shared interests with others, and other difficulties socially that impact activities of daily living. Developmental issues can also arise, like speech delays and learning disabilities.

What is ABA Therapy?

Applied Behavior Analysis, or ABA therapy, is a multi-step reward-based approach that helps children overcome challenging behaviors. ABA therapy helps with difficulties in social skills, communication and other critical areas of development. It’s time to give your child the skills they need to succeed and thrive in the future!

One of the primary strategies used in ABA is positive reinforcement. ABA therapy is widely recognized as the most effective, results-driven treatment for those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), where children gain the confidence, skills and discipline they need to thrive.

How does it work?

Our Behavior Therapists work on basic skills such as focusing and listening, while tapping into more complex skills like reading and social skills. By following these steps, we help reduce the behaviors that make it difficult for children to learn by giving them the skills to develop, learn and grow healthily and positively.

Why do therapy at home?

Research has proven that children succeed best in an environment in which they’re comfortable. By working with your child in the safety of home makes them feel more at ease and are therefore more receptive to our methodologies.
