Applied Behavior Training

Service Description

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is one of the most effective ways to teach children with special needs. At Caring Hearts, we utilize a variety of treatment modalities such as Incidental Teaching, Precision Teaching and Discrete Trial Training.  ABA is used to teach a wide variety of skills.  

When a child is enrolled, they will be assessed by one of our Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Our BCBA will conduct behavioral observations, complete assessments  with the child, and  interview caregivers and other stakeholders.   afterward review past evaluations and reports. Based on the information gained After the assessment, an individualized treatment plan is written and discussed with the family.  The family is a key part to the treatment of the child, so it is critical the family agree and provide input on the treatment plan.

Parent Training

All insurance companies require a parent training component which makes it mandatory for all family’s insurance. Parent training is also beneficial for your child to have parents learn and implement strategies that can help increase desirable behaviors or decrease maladaptive behaviors.
