Our Philosophy and Methodology
From a behavior-analytic perspective, autism is a syndrome of behavioral excesses and deficits. Every behavioral aspect of autism is addressed using interventions based on the scientifically validated principles of applied behavior analysis.
When working with children with autism and other developmental disabilities, we focus on the development of language and other foundational skills. We are committed to intervention methods based on scientific research in the field of applied behavior analysis. Our language training is based on B.F. Skinner’s analysis of verbal behavior.
We use a wide variety of other proven instructional methods, including errorless learning, discrete trial teaching, prompting, prompt-fading, fluency training, and natural environment training. Our programs maintain a high level of positive reinforcement to keep learning fun and motivating.
We provide a wide range of applied behavior analysis services and supports to children with autism and other developmental disabilities in Florida and other states. We also work with families, educators, and other caregivers. We serve children from birth to age 21.
We consider each child as a unique individual. Our programs are highly individualized. ABLLS is used as our curriculum guide. Skills are taught in the following areas:
