Early Intervention ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) services are provided in collaboration with Early Intervention agencies to meet the unique needs of children with autism under age 3. These programs help infants and toddlers who require assistance to meet developmental milestones to achieve physical development, social and emotional, cognitive, communicative, and adaptive goals. Naturalistic ABA services help address each child’s communication, play, and social skill development through learning that builds upon the child’s interests and motivation. Our clinical team partners with families to develop individualized plans that impact children’s daily lives. Sessions can occur in the home or community, such as a daycare setting.
Your child may benefit from these early autism services combined with other therapies, such as OT (occupational therapy), to help young children develop their motor, visual, hand, and arm skills. Another therapy it can be in combination with is physical therapy. This therapy helps infants gain or learn motor control skills to allow them to sit up, roll over, and crawl. Early autism services could also be implemented in combination with early speech intervention. Your child will gain communication and feeding skills.
Our ABA early intervention program is among the best in the region. There is a process to get into this program, so you should get the ball rolling right away to ensure prompt enrollment.
To access Early Intervention ABA services, reach out to your local Early Intervention agency and request a referral for ABA services that are funded through your health insurance.
