About Our ABA Therapy Services
One of the most important services offered by Children’s Milestone is called Direct ABA Therapy. The treatment methods of Applied Behavioral Analysis are designed to help your child decrease socially inappropriate behaviors while simultaneously promoting and reinforcing socially appropriate skills.
ABA therapy begins with an intake session and milestone assessment. We’ll create a treatment plan based on your child’s individual strengths and weaknesses, then we’ll begin therapy and schedule routine monthly meetings to assess your child’s progression. Additionally, we’ll conduct a new assessment of your child’s progress every six months and make adjustments accordingly.
Our ABA Services
Along with direct therapy, we also offer a range of other ABA services, including:
Parent Training: We’ll teach you as a parent how you can contribute to your child’s success with Applied Behavioral Analysis. Parent training will equip you with the skills you need to be able to help your child.
One-on-One Therapy: In our one-on-one therapy sessions, a board-certified behavior technician (RBT) will work closely with your child under the supervision of a board-certified behavior analyst (BCBA), using the proven techniques of ABA therapy.
Social Skills Group: This refers to activities designed to teach your child effective social skills, including body language, assertiveness, empathy, and more.
