ABA is a scientific approach based on principles used to teach various behaviours that are socially significant which helps to improve the overall quality of life. It is used to teach desired behaviours and remove or reduce challenging behaviours. Our therapy program is founded on decades of research and experience in the ABA field.
ABA can be used for any individual to address significant behaviours to any group of persons with varying abilities. It is not restricted to individuals with autism spectrum disorder. Our therapists use Applied Behaviour to address the various domains but are not limited to:
To ensure the needs of the program are tailored to the individual’s needs we provide a free intake consultation to identify the individual’s needs as every person is unique even if the diagnosis is the same. We work with the family and individual to identify the varying goals the program seeks to attain.
Once the intake has been completed we conduct an assessment that focuses on the areas that are identified by the family and/or individual they would like to focus on. Working alongside the family and/or individual a personalized therapy plan is developed to ensure the goals will be met appropriately.
Our clinical team is available throughout the Greater Toronto Area offering support in home as well as in the community (i.e. daycare, school) depending on the individual’s needs.
We believe therapy is most effective when provided within the individual’s natural environment where family members or other persons involved in the individual’s life can be directly involved. Individualized plans are created to assist in the individual transitioning into the community, school or work settings.
