Going Beyond what’s expected from ABA Therapy
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy for children with autism involves many hours of dedicated, one-on-one treatment with each child. Our therapists and overseeing supervisors implement ABA therapy programs to address the behavioral, social, and communication deficits that are the hallmarks of autism, improving each child’s ability to communicate, interact, and thrive in the world.
Each child with an autism spectrum disorder is unique; learning and progressing in different ways and at different paces.That’s why each treatment plan at Steps to Progress is designed to emphasize functional skills and behaviors that will allow your child to make improvements in both the short and long-term.
Why Families Choose Us
As a company founded and managed by parents of an autistic child, our mission and values are based on a deep and genuine understanding of how hard it can be choosing and working with an ABA therapy clinic. With more than 50 combined years of personal and professional experience, our founders also understand the difficulties of work/life balance, especially while raising a child with autism.
Highly Skilled Therapists
While many clinics only require a high school diploma, all of our therapists have college degrees. They also receive RBT training and become Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT) within their first two months of employment. New staff receives additional ABA training by our Program Director, Behavior Analyst, and Assistant Supervisor. All of our staff receive ongoing therapy training as well as Basic Life Support (BLS) and Safety Care training, enabling them to handle a variety of behavioral situations.
In order to fully realize your child's abilities, it is imperative that parents are involved and learn ABA therapy techniques. Your child will need not only the support of our trained ABA therapists, but also the consistency in expectations and positive reinforcement from their “home team.” We provide the information, training, and interventions necessary to create the best opportunity for your child to continue to learn new skills and improve on problematic behaviors at home.
Flexible Therapy Schedules
We understand that families have busy, varying schedules and different needs. Our team works to make reasonable schedule accommodations that will not impact the effectiveness of therapy and still accommodate your lifestyle.
