Comprehensive ABA Therapy
Targeting a number of skills across a variety of areas
Children attend our centre multiple times per week for 2-7 hour sessions. During these sessions, behaviour therapists work one to one with your child and their time with the therapist alternates between two instructional settings. The first setting is fast-paced and intensive teaching sessions at a table where skills such as language, learning readiness, visual performance, academics and attending and cooperation are targeted. The second instructional setting is slower pace of instruction in a more naturalistic environment such as our playroom, craft room, outdoor space, or sensory area where skills such as communication, play, and social skills are targetted. Behaviour therapists incorporate your child’s interests and motivation where possible in order to keep your child engaged in learning. Data is collected and reviewed each session to measure the child’s progress and adjust our approaches as needed.

Your child will attend our centre for 2-3 sessions so our clinicians can observe the child’s behaviours and skills and to directly test areas of concern using a variety of assessment tools.
