The on-site group ABA program will encompass a “pre-school” type setting where children attend a highly structured group ABA Program for 4 hours a day. This program will provide a guaranteed 20 hours a week of necessary intervention needed for a child diagnosed with Autism and related disabilities.
This program will involve two critical components: One-to-one intensive teaching sessions following the Lovaas method and other scientifically validated approaches, and natural environment teaching sessions to generalize the skills taught in the intensive teaching sessions. These two sessions will be randomly rotated throughout the four hours so there are equal opportunities for learning in the one-to-one setting as well as learning in a group with similar peers. Four qualified interventionists will work across six children, with 1-to-1 instruction provided during the intensive teaching sessions. All children will participate in circle time, art time, snack, time and community outings together as a group.
Note: All clients will be assessed and screened before acceptance into the on-site group program. There are several pre-requisite skills necessary before children are ready for group ABA therapy. If clients are screened and are not considered ready to handle the on-site program, families will be given an option to enroll into our home ABA program.
