Service Areas in South Florida
ABA Therapy Solutions provides applied behavior analysis services in-home, community, school, and clinic settings in various service areas throughout South Florida. Behavior Analysts plan for generalization so that behavior changes will be long-lasting. They will teach the individual and their family to generalize skills across various settings and people.
We work in-home, school, and communities in and around South Florida including Palm Beach, Okeechobee, Martin, St. Lucie, and Indian River Counties.
The home-based model of treatment offers a seamless opportunity for caregivers to be closely involved in therapy. Daily living skills (e.g., toileting, brushing teeth, dressing, cleaning) can be taught in the home environment. Generalizing skills is often difficult for individuals diagnosed with autism. Generalizing is the transferring of behavior from one situation to the next. Home-based therapy has shown greater success in promoting generalization across environments (Leaf, et al., 2017).
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) mandates that eligible individuals with disabilities have available to them special education and related services designed to address their unique and individual needs. Therapy in school settings may vary depending on the district, school’s policies, and/or funding sources. Please contact our office to obtain further information on in-school services.
A clinic-based model has its own advantages such as providing a verbal community for a child and additional support for caregivers. Many children with autism have impaired social skills consequently, surrounding a child with ample social opportunities with peers throughout a day can be advantageous to learning new social skills. Snack time, lunchtime, and group play provide exposure to a variety of new conditions from which children can learn (Leaf, et al., 2017).
