APPLIED BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS (ABA) LEARNING
Our center offers one-on-one intensive ABA therapy to children ages 2-10. We have a 3-Phase Program that prepares a child to enter mainstream or special education schools. The ultimate goal of our 3-Phase Program is to teach the child to naturally learn from his/her environment.
ABA FOR OLDER CHILDREN
For older children, our goal is independent work, improving social skills, and for the child to be able to entertain himself/herself with varied productive tasks.
- Vocational training and choice making
- Regulating emotions
- Multiple-step activities – e.g. making a sandwich, doing laundry, cleaning his/her room
- Listening and reading comprehension
- Computer skills
- Visual schedules
ABA FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN
For younger children, our goal is to improve communication and social interactions and teach basic skills. Areas we work on include:
- Sound pairing, sign language, or PECS (depending on the child’s needs and abilities) to increase communication
- Fine/gross motor skills
- Self-help skills – potty training, feeding, getting dressed, etc.
- Tacts, mands, imitating, receptive skills, and expressive skills
TDLC SPECIALIZED ABA SERVICES
Individualized Data Programming
Each child has his/her own individual data program that is specific to the child’s needs and targeted areas of improvement.
Language / Communication Improvement
We expand language and communication skills through natural environment training and incidental learning.
Behavior Intervention Plan
With the cooperation of staff and parents, we use proper instruction and reinforcement to help a child modify their behaviors.
READY TO START APPLIED BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS?
To set up an appointment to meet our team and tour the Center, please call us at 713-993-7554. During the first appointment, a member of the administration team will give a tour of our facility and talk with you about different treatment options to find the one that will best suit your child’s needs.
After the initial meeting, we will set up a second appointment to assess your child. The assessment lasts between an hour to an hour and a half long, and is performed by a member of our Programming Team. After the assessment is completed, the next step is to set up a schedule for your child to receive therapy. In general, it can take two to three weeks for us to get started, depending on insurance verification, scheduling availability, and the services to be provided.
