Focused based ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis), our Building Blocks Program
The Building Blocks program is a comprehensive and collaborative approach to your child’s therapeutic treatment. The aim of this program is to meet all your child’s needs under one roof. Our goal is to always provide your child with the highest quality of care that promotes the safety, dignity, and joy of your child! Applied behavior analysis is a scientific approach to understanding behavior. ABA refers to a set of principles that focus on how behaviors change or are affected by the environment, as well as how learning takes place. ABA can be applied to your everyday life but is mostly known for the treatment of Autism.
The goal of this model is to provide your child with the opportunity to practice new skills across different therapeutic environments. Your child will work with a team of therapists from different disciplines including Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Applied Behavior Analysis, Mental Health, and/or Physical Therapy. In establishing this multi-disciplinary team, we hope to promote generalization and flexibility while allowing children the chance to exhibit their strengths in various settings.
The Building Blocks program is a Focused-based model. Focused ABA is a model that services children with 6-25 hours of therapy a week. The focused model approach is geared toward children that do not have as many deficits and only have a few goals to work on. The focused model tends to work more on an incidental teaching approach (also known as natural environment training).
A comprehensive list of other concerns that we treat:
- Spina Bifida
- Cerebral Palsy
- Sensory Processing Disorder
- Down Syndrome
- Brachial Plexus
- Dyslexia/Apraxia of Speech
- Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC)
- Neurological Disorders
- Feeding Difficulties
Our therapists specialize in the medical issues that affect children and adolescents, but can also assist parents in preparing for the behavioral and social changes that their children may experience as they get older. We offer a wide range of services that are beyond the routine well-child visits, sick visits, and vaccinations that are part of your child’s primary care.
Ultimately, we want to give every family the resources they need to maintain long-term wellness. The aches, sensations, and feelings that children and adolescents may be experiencing are not often expressed. Trying to figure out what’s wrong with your child when they start acting funny can be a nerve-wracking experience. Every member of our team is available to you at all times should you have a question or concern about your child’s mental, physical, or emotional well-being.
We also provide Telehealth. Due to COVID-19 and adverse weather conditions that can occur, we’ve had a major shift in appointments and some gaps in schedules. We want to make sure each patient is getting the care they deserve. Telehealth is always an option we can provide when applicable.
