Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy (ABA)

Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy (ABA)

At Phoenix we offer individualized behavioral services at the centre, home and community setting for individuals of all ages. The program is based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) and addresses the individual’s needs on variety of developmental domains and is supervised by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst and implemented on a one to one basis by ABA Therapists.ABA Interventions aim to produce changes in specific skills that impact global measures of functioning, that includes language and communication skills, adaptive skills and social function in children with autism and/or other developmental disabilities.
 
We offer Comprehensive ABA Therapy packages are for 20 hours or more per week and Focused ABA packages are available for less than 20 hours per week.

What is Comprehensive and Focused ABA?

Comprehensive ABA interventions are aimed at producing changes in specific skills that impact global levels of functioning such as IQ,adaptive skills and social functioning over an extended period of time either in the home,centre or community setting. For effective treatment, it is recommended that programming is delivered for 20-40 hours per week.
Focused ABA interventions are designed to address specific behavior decelerations such as aggression,self injury and other challenging behaviors.A functional behavior assessment is often conducted to identify the variables behind the problem behavior and this information is then used to develop the individualized treatment. Interventions are also used to address skills deficits, when standard teaching and parenting practices are unsuccessful. These interventions are short term and time limited.


What treatment would better serve my child?

After an initial skills/behavior assessment is completed, a behaviour plan is created to identify areas of concerns across all domains and the number of hours per week will be determined by the amount of programming that is required. A minimum of 6 hours is required for this program but the more hours the learner has the more skills can be taught and practiced.
