Center-Based ABA Therapy


Center-based ABA therapy provides children with a safe and supportive environment for learning and growth. Our center-based ABA therapy programs are designed to maximize progress and provide a high level of individualized support.



Choosing an ABA Therapy Center


Choosing between in-home and center-based ABA therapy can be a tough decision for parents of children with autism. While in-home therapy offers convenience and flexibility, center-based therapy can provide a structured learning environment with access to a wider range of resources and staff expertise. In addition, center-based therapy allows for children to interact with peers who are also receiving therapy, which can aid in socialization and generalization of skills.

Center-Based ABA Therapy Techniques


In a center-based ABA program, therapists work with children in a clinical setting, which can provide a more structured and focused environment for learning. Centers also have access to a wide range of resources and materials, such as visual aids, social stories, and sensory equipment, that may not be available in a home setting. Therapists use evidence-based techniques to teach new skills, such as Discrete Trial Training (DTT) and Natural Environment Training (NET), and may also use tools like behavior charts and reinforcement schedules to monitor progress and reward positive behavior.

What to Expect from Center-Based Autism Programs



Center-based ABA therapy can provide a structured and supportive setting for children with autism to learn and grow, and it can be an effective option for families seeking a comprehensive approach to treatment.

During an ABA therapy session, the behavior technician will work one-on-one with your child, using evidence-based techniques and interventions to teach them new skills and address challenging behaviors. They will use positive reinforcement to encourage desirable behaviors and may also use prompting and fading techniques to help your child learn at their own pace. The technician will track your child's progress and modify the treatment plan as needed to ensure your child is making steady progress towards their goals

Benefits of Center-Based ABA Therapy


ABA therapy in a center-based setting provides a unique environment for children to learn and grow. With access to specialized equipment, games, and social activities, children are able to develop skills in a dynamic and engaging environment. By working with experienced clinicians in a dedicated therapy space, children are able to make progress toward their goals and build a foundation for long-term success.

  • Access to a wide range of resources and equipment
