Applied Behavior Analysis
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services are designed to empower parents to provide the support and guidance a child impacted by autism needs to be successful in his or her natural environment. Passion for child and family success is the driving force behind the Autism Services program at Heartspring. We understand the varying needs of children impacted by autism spectrum disorder and our programs are tailored to provide life-changing opportunities for the children and families we serve. Service structure varies by child and can include one-on-one therapy services, parent training, office visits, home visits, coordination of care with other facilities/schools and other therapies and natural environment training. By implementing evidenced-based treatment and individualized programming, the children in our programs often exceed expectations placed upon them by the individuals in their lives.
Research shows if therapy is started early, outcomes are significantly improved over the lifetime of a child impacted by autism. Heartspring’s Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EIBI) program focuses on a comprehensive intensive service model for children who are under the age of five. Children receive up to 20 to 30 hours a week of therapy in a variety of different settings.
