Children diagnosed with autism often experience difficulty using words or understanding and interacting with others. This is a sign of a speech or language disorder — conditions our trained speech-language pathologists can help your child overcome with a personalized treatment plan. Integrating Speech Therapy into our ABA therapy programs allows children to practice language in a naturally occurring setting that can easily be translated to a child’s natural environment such as a home or school setting. We utilize Speech Therapy services as part of our programs to target verbal, nonverbal, and social communication skills.
Bierman’s ABA therapy services can help your child improve behaviors, learn new skills, and reach new goals.
The Speech Therapy Team works with Bierman’s BCBA’s who provide Applied Behavior Analysis therapy. This includes using naturalistic teaching to teach through play. We understand that children are always right – and if they are not learning, we adapt to them. We ensure children are progressing and developing skills through our proprietary data measurement system. We seek to create lifelong learners and long-term success.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the study and analysis of behavior as it relates to the natural environment. Utilizing this evidence-based, best practice standard, 1:1 programs are developed to decrease challenging behaviors and increase socially significant skills. To maximize outcomes, each child’s ABA therapy programs are individually designed and utilize data-based decisions to ensure individualized learning.
Empower your child to do life on their terms.
Within our centers, we serve many children that face difficulty effectively receiving, processing, and responding to sensory information. Occupational Therapy can help children strengthen skills that are needed in everyday life and can help target skills related to play, school preparation, self-esteem, and daily living.
