Our services for children with autism are uniquely designed for each child. The early start program is catered for infants and toddlers (0-3 years old) at risk for developmental delays. These individuals may not have a formal diagnosis but may not meet their developmental milestones.
Research shows that the earlier a child receives treatment, the more likely they are to experience better outcomes in terms of socialization, communication, and meeting other developmental milestones.
Our services for children with autism are a great benefit for your child. Early intervention services focus more on “readiness to learn” skills, which allow the child to learn from their environment (i.e., imitation, following directions, engaging with developmentally appropriate toys). These skills are addressed with the ultimate goal for the child to meet developmental milestones, then continue meeting further milestones as they come. Direct ABA addresses more in-depth skills that follow a curriculum based on the child’s specific deficits (i.e., learning levels of friendship for a child who does not demonstrate the concept of strangers vs. safe friends/families). Direct ABA also has a deeper emphasis on behavior modification.
We are here to help you with any questions you might have surrounding ABA Therapy.
