At LeafWing Center we understand that time is important for children with autism. Because of this, our treatment approach utilizes an Applied Behavior Analysis methodology. Applied Behavior Analysis is the only research proven treatment for children with autism spectrum disorder. Children with autism don’t have time to lose, so we use a treatment approach that has been shown to teach the most in the shortest amount of time.
It’s hard to know the facets of a solid program. We have therefore identified some characteristics of an Applied Behavior Analysis program for your reference:
- Functional assessments for problem behavior
- Reinforcement based strategies for teaching new behaviors
- Generalization goals
- Parent training
- Teaching functionally equivalent replacement behaviors
Parent involvement and individualized programs for autistic children are cornerstones to effective treatment. Our autism treatment programs are comprehensive, intensive and child friendly. Using the information gathered during our assessment process, an individual treatment program is created for your child and each child’s learning is continually monitored to ensure that we adapt to their unique learning styles.
