ABA Therapy for Children with Autism

ABA, or Applied Behavior Analysis, refers to a variety of treatment techniques based on the scientific principles of behavior analysis. ABA is not a specific treatment, but an approach to treatment that allows the ABA therapist to use a variety of techniques that work best for the unique needs of a given child.

Programs will be based on an initial assessment, family preferences, and consultation with your child’s school and other therapists as applicable. Each program will be overseen and monitored by a Licensed Applied Behavior Analyst (LABA) / Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) who will also provide on-going training and support to families and caregivers working with your child. Clients can be seen at the home, in the clinic, or a combination of both.

Direct ABA Services

Home Based ABA Services

Amego Florida's In-Home ABA services will be tailored to the specific needs of the child in the home and community setting. A comprehensive treatment plan will be developed that outlines specific goals and objectives for services to promote skills in all areas of development. Home based services can occur 7 days per week at various times of the day depending on the child’s needs. Some examples of skills that will be taught include daily living skills, communication skills, verbal behavior, and decreasing challenging behavior. There will be  opportunities for parent support to promote generalization of skills and to assist parents when addressing challenging behaviors in the home or community.

Center Based ABA Services

Center based programs will offer on-site direct ABA services. Individuals participating in this program will receive 15-20 hours of ABA services per week. During sessions there will be  discrete trial opportunities along with social interactions with peers. Each child will have a comprehensive treatment plan that outlines all goals for services. Center based services will be offered both in a morning and an afternoon session.

Social Skills Groups

Playgroups

Amego’s playgroups will focus on the children following a structured routine. Our dedicated staff will create opportunities to teach social skills such as waiting, attending, turn taking, joint attention and appropriate engagement in a group environment. Specific goals will be identified for each participant based upon initial social skills assessment. The ages for playgroups will range from 2-6 years. Groups will consist of 3-6 children per session who are similar in age and functioning level. The ratio for playgroups is 1:3, although accommodations can be made for children requiring additional support.

Behavioral Skills Training

Amego’s Behavior Skills Training groups will focus on training specific social skills. Skills will be trained through the use of video modeling, role playing, and feedback of performance. The age range for these groups ranges from 5 years to adolescents. Groups will consist of 3-6 participants per session who are similar in age and functioning level. The ratio for playgroups is 1:3, although accommodations can be made for children requiring additional support.
