What to Expect
ABA, Applied Behavior Analysis, is the discipline that studies human behavior and aims to improve social behavior by implementing the fundamental techniques of the learning theory. Applied Behavior Analysis therapy builds on the principles of learning. This approached is often used to help individuals diagnosed with Autism develop their communication, social and learning skills.
Our therapists are Board Certified Behavior Analysts, having completed graduate programs approved by the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB). Some have completed Master’s degrees in Psychology with a specialty in Applied Behavior Analysis. We carefully select each therapists based on education, experience, and approach. Essentially, we choose committed therapists we believe can make a positive and lasting impact on our clients’ lives.
Our team will dive into the details and possible triggers that might be setting off certain problematic behaviors. We work to help the child find more positive ways of reacting to triggers and helping them replace the negative behaviors with positive tactics. Analysts evaluate your child via assessments and help them set specific goals to work towards. We’ll help your child develop new skills, advance previously learned skills, and decrease problems in social behavior.
It helps improve social, communication, and learning skills of children through positive reinforcement.
Programs are developed by BCBA according to the input a child gives in skill assessments.
1:1 sessions are held with an RBT (Registered Behavior Technician).
Activities for learning such as table manners are based on fun and play, which aim to enhance the child’s psycho-motor skills.
All sessions and activities prioritize individuality, age, and aptitude of each child.
What can you find in a behavior plan?
A behavior plan contains thoughtfully chosen established procedures for teaching new skills that seek to reduce problematic behaviors. Therapists use a variety of approaches supported by research to build verbal and adaptive skills. Additionally, our BCBAs train caregivers and childcare providers on how to respond to everyday learning, emotional and behavioral challenges and how to reinforce the skills developed during therapy sessions.

We focus on mental, emotional or physical impairments along with speech clarity.
BCBA and a team of other specialized therapists ensure consistency and growth while moving forward with Occupational and Language Therapy.
The Preschool provides a completely dependable and synchronized environment for increasing chances of effective learning processes and expertise.
21st Century Skills
Our school aims in enriching skills like Problem Solving through Creativity and Collaboration. We strongly believe in Activity Based Learning Methodologies and promote:
We want our learners to take the skills they learn with their RBTs out into the world and transition to less restrictive environments if and when they’re ready, such as school, daycare, gymnastics class, etc. We use our group skills curriculum to move learners from very basic skills such as sitting with peers and responding in a group to longer activities that mimic common preschool structure.
Children are taught the basic norms of standard schooling from the scratch, like managing belongings, packing their bags, entering and exiting in queue.
We also teach regulations and rules to be followed in restrooms, playground, libraries, and so forth.
To emphasize the importance of social skills in life, we fuel their development of confidence in social interactions among peers, we offer play dates, and other booming talent show activities for children to display their socializing skills and talents. Mixed ability groups are formed where a child with outstanding skills and/or special social needs are paired up with another child who manages to group up and mingle easily under the careful supervision and handling of their RBTs.
