Most people have not heard about Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy until they find out their child is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their Primary Care Physician recommends it. It isn’t as well known as Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) or Occupational Therapy (OT). However, it is foundational in making the child and family more successful in most areas of their lives, including visits to SLP or OT specialists. Oftentimes, ABA providers work with parents, PCP, SLP and OT providers, insurances, and the school systems to create a unique treatment plan to help the child with their development.
Our children change us. They have eyes that never tire of seeing, ears that never tire of hearing, and questions that grasp the attention of any engaged adult. They force us to see things we always looked past. Their simple questions challenge our basic assumptions and force us to view things differently. Their inquisitiveness and growth have an innate value that brings joy to those who work and play with them. That joy fueled the beginning of ABC Behavior in 2014, and continues fueling us as we meet each new child.
