All About ABA

What Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is all about

ABA, summarized.

At Greater Goals, we believe in the power of personalized care and understanding to help your child thrive. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), the cornerstone of our approach, is all about discovering what motivates your child to learn and using that to create a supportive environment tailored just for them. With your input, we identify your child’s unique strengths and needs, shaping a learning plan that evolves over time to suit their growth.

Our aim is simple: to empower individuals with autism to lead fulfilling lives. Through engaging interactions and our specialized curriculum, we focus on fostering independence in communication, social skills, and play. We understand the importance of positive relationships in learning, which is why we prioritize building trust and rapport with your child. By closely monitoring progress and making adjustments as needed, we ensure they get the support they need every step of the way.

ABA isn’t just about autism – it’s effective for a wide range of challenges. With decades of research backing its effectiveness, you can trust that your child is in good hands with our team of dedicated professionals. Our Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) and Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) undergo rigorous training to provide the highest quality care and support.

In our interventions, we focus on creating a positive learning environment where your child can thrive. From planned activities in the classroom to spontaneous moments on the playground, every interaction is an opportunity for growth. By emphasizing positive reinforcement and social interactions, we help your child develop the skills they need to succeed – at any age.

Does my child have Autism?

Recognizing the signs of autism is an important step in understanding and supporting your child’s unique journey. While every child is different, there are common signs to be aware of that may indicate autism spectrum disorder (ASD). These signs can manifest in various ways, including challenges with social interactions, communication difficulties, repetitive behaviors, and sensory sensitivities.

However, it’s crucial to remember that a diagnosis of autism is not the end of your child’s journey – it’s a fresh beginning. In fact, it can be a powerful tool for empowerment and understanding. By recognizing and addressing these signs early on, you can provide your child with the support and resources they always needed to thrive.

With the right support and intervention, children with autism can lead fulfilling lives and reach their full potential.

If you notice any of the following signs in your child, it may be worth speaking with a healthcare professional for further evaluation:

  1. Difficulty with social interactions, such as making eye contact or understanding social cues.
  2. Challenges with communication, including delayed speech development or difficulty understanding language.
  3. Repetitive behaviors or intense interests in specific topics.
  4. Sensory sensitivities, such as being sensitive to light, sound, or textures.
  5. Difficulty with transitions or changes in routine.

By being empowered with knowledge about the signs of autism, you can take proactive steps to support your child on their journey. With early intervention and support, children with autism can thrive and achieve their dreams. Remember, autism is just one aspect of who your child is – with love, understanding, and support, they can overcome any challenge that comes their way.

Early intervention can change a life.

Research shows that quality early interention can vastly improve learning, communication and social skills, as well as development

ABA is a tool that can help turn autism from a challenge into an advantage
