Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
ABA is an intensive, behaviorally-based treatment that uses various techniques to bring about meaningful and positive changes in the communication, social interaction, and repetitive/restrictive behaviors that are typical of ASD. Each child will have an individualized Care Plan that breaks down desired skills into manageable steps to be taught. Each ABA Plan is designed for the individualized needs of the child and will include an average of 5 to 25 hours of direct interventions per week, depending on medical necessity. These services are provided in HealthCall’s Behavioral Services Center. ABA interventions also include parent/guardian training and participation so caregivers are empowered to continue therapies at home and thereby ensure the greatest opportunity for success in the community and at home.
Committed to person-centered care
The families we serve help to choose their care teams and those teams stay consistent. Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) evaluate each new client to coordinate an individualized Care Plan with the family. They hold regular interdisciplinary meetings, conduct training with staff and family members, perform hands-on client assessments, and assist in finding community resources and support; ours is a true care team approach.
Our early intervention day program is an intensive, one-on-one program geared to each child’s needs and goals. Our center-based approach also provides essential social skills in a group setting. This program runs year-round from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
After School Program
Our after school program provides opportunities for school-age children to learn positive behavior strategies, develop relationships, and become more independent. This program runs year-round from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, as well as 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
This program focuses on training children through interventions that use consistency and reinforcement. Parental participation and education is heavily emphasized.
Secure Family Portal
