Yes. ABA therapy is not just for non-vocal children. ABA is used to work on increasing various behaviors, social skills, functional skills, emotion regulations skill, and functional communication to apply within their daily lives.
We request that parents participate in their child’s program as much as possible. This includes observing sessions, taking data on behaviors observed within the home, implementing treatment plan goals, attending parent training sessions and being an active participant in the treatment planning process. Our ultimate goal is to work ourselves out of a job! By working directly with parents and caregivers, we are able to transfer techniques so they may be implemented by the parent long after we are gone.
