In-Clinic ABA Therapy
If your child is on the autism spectrum, they may benefit from in-clinic applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy, a treatment method used to build important life skills that can improve their developmental trajectory.
Help Your Child With Autism Thrive
In-clinic ABA therapy helps your child learn how to thrive outside of their home by applying their skills in a clinical or school setting. Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts, Registered Behavior Technicians, ABA Therapists, and Speech-Language Pathologists will help your child learn positive behaviors with evidence-based interventions rooted in our understanding of how behavioral development influences actions. This method enables your child to create a healthy routine and adapt to real-life situations.
In-clinic ABA therapy is beneficial because it teaches your child practical skills like adapting to different environments, building relationships, and achieving increased independence. A clinical setting allows for increased collaboration with your child’s teachers and other pediatric specialists.
Who Does In-Clinic ABA Therapy Help?
In-clinic ABA therapy is used to treat autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other behavioral conditions, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). We work with children ages birth to 12 years to help them learn age-appropriate behaviors that allow them to effectively participate in more activities and experiences.
In-clinic ABA therapy programs are individualized to accommodate your child’s personal goals and skill level. Our therapists may work with your child to build skills in areas such as:
- Language and communication
- Self-care and personal hygiene
- Learning and pre-academic skills
- Play and socialization skills (ability to observe and participate)
- Task management skills (ability to prioritize tasks, break projects into small steps, and see things through to completion)
- Coping skills (ability to keep calm, establish a routine, etc.)
How Our In-Clinic ABA Therapists Help
Our in-clinic ABA therapists will evaluate your child to determine what skills and behaviors need to be nurtured. Then, they’ll develop a treatment plan in collaboration with your child’s other healthcare providers based on their individualized goals.
Positive reinforcement and antecedents are the most common techniques used in ABA therapy. Positive reinforcement works by rewarding your child for exhibiting a beneficial or goal behavior. Their therapist may give them praise, a toy, extended playtime, or another treat to prompt them to associate the positive behavior with joy. Antecedents are used to help children and their caregivers understand the triggers behind their behavior and link them to the correlating consequence. This encourages your child to learn how to make positive decisions when they recognize a given emotion. The techniques can complement each other and may be reinforced in out-of-clinic settings.
Examples of positive outcomes of pediatric ABA therapy include:
- Actively participating in play and socialization
- Creating age-appropriate self-care routines and habits
- Effectively communicating their needs
- Clearly and specifically asking for something
- Increased ability to focus in school and other learning environments
- Reducing challenging behaviors
- Managing emotions to make tantrums and outbursts less frequent
