ABC Behavioral provides direct services and individualized therapy. We recognize that each child is an individual with unique needs. Our goal is to create a personalized treatment plan that will make learning and behavior therapy as natural as possible. In sessions, we utilize a natural, play based and flexible approach combined with proven applied behavior analysis techniques.
Approach and Strategies:
Development of goals based on functional and developmental assessments. Family goals are also considered in overall treatment plan as needed.
Personalized interventions are created using developmentally appropriate techniques such as applied behavioral analysis in the most naturalistic settings.
Goals enable learners to become more independent and successful over time.
Frequent review of child’s progress using observations and data collection.
Family support and feedback on interventions.
Finally, expect change and progress- lots of progress.
ABC Social is our group-based approach to therapy. We create groups and carefully match kids based on age, communication abilities and social development needs. Each small group is uniquely tailored to meet the needs of the children. We offer social skills groups for all ages: pre-k, elementary, adolescents and teens. ABC Social meets weekly at our clinic for 1 hour over the course of 10 and 12 week sessions. Prosocial groups are typically held in Fall, Spring and Summer. Skills targeted for learning include (but are not limited to):
Developing and maintaining friendships
Communication with peers
Strategies for handling feelings
Skills for dealing with stress
Classroom and school related skills
