Applied behavior analysis encompasses different techniques that help your child meet certain goals. Depending on your child’s needs, his or her therapist may start helping them to learn simple tasks or skills, building up to skills that are more complex. Therapists use praise or feedback to encourage your child and shape positive behaviors.
The ABA program at Pediatric Therapy Services integrates multiple types of therapies based on your child’s specific needs. For instance, because many diagnosed with autism or other developmental delays struggle with communication, speech-language therapy is frequently a part of their learning program. Occupational therapy can help with sensory issues, while physical therapy can help to increase strength and mobility.
One of the most important aspects of ABA therapy, however, is ensuring that your child and his or her primary therapist connect well with each other. At Pediatric Therapy Clinic, we make every effort to create a situation where your child will be able to build rapport and trust with the therapist, and that you will be comfortable in working with the therapist as well.
