Behavioral Therapy works by reinforcing and rewarding helpful behaviors that improve learning and communication skills.
ABA involves several phases, allowing for an approach tailored to your child’s specific needs.
Consultation and AssessmentFirst, you will consult with one of our board-certified behavior analysts (BCBA). The BCBA will ask about your child’s strengths and abilities as well as things that challenge them. They will spend time interacting with your child to make observations about their behavior, communication level, and skills.
Developing a PlanYour child’s BCBA will use their observations to create a formal plan for therapy. Effective treatment looks different for every child, and each plan will have specific interventions that fit your child’s needs.

Many children on the autism spectrum need help in learning how to act in different social situations. Many also need help learning the life skills essential to increase independence at home, at school and in the community. By introducing these skills early and building block by block, children with autism can gain the tools that will allow them to increase self esteem and lead to more happiness in all areas of life.
ACNM offers social skills/basic living group learning opportunities throughout the year. Consult the events calendar for scheduled opportunities.
