Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA)

Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA)

At Mitchell’s Place, we offer focused ABA treatment and comprehensive ABA treatment. We place emphasis on evidence-based practices by utilizing objective assessment, understanding the social importance of each behavior, improving the client’s quality of life and utilizing consistent ongoing assessment.

All of our ABA programs are supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA)/Licensed Behavior Analyst (LBA) who creates an individualized treatment plan that identifies skills to increase and problematic behaviors to decrease. Each child in our ABA programs will have a therapist who has obtained certification as a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). A RBT is a paraprofessional who practices under the close, ongoing supervision of a BCBA or BCaBA and is primarily responsible for the direct implementation of behavior analytic services.

 

 

Focused ABA Treatment

Our focused ABA treatment is a one-on-one program that focuses on teaching foundational language and learning skills using the principals of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. In this setting, we work with children when first signs are noticed until approximately seven years old. The number of sessions will be determined based on the client’s need and the centers availability. Most clients attend 2 to 4 days a week for 2 to 4 hour sessions.

 

 

Comprehensive ABA Treatment

Our comprehensive ABA treatment is a one-on-one program as well. It focuses on teaching foundational language skills, foundational learning skills, daily living skills, and social skills using the principals of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Children are integrated, as appropriate, into classrooms in our Early Learning Preschool (ELP) program to target social skills, classroom and group skills and generalization of skills. In this setting, we work with two years old to six years old. This program runs five days a week from 8 AM until 3 PM.

Teach Me Program

 

Teach Me is a 1:1 program that focuses on teaching foundational language, learning, daily living and social skills using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). The primary method of language instruction in the Teach Me program is based on B.F. Skinner’s analysis of Verbal Behavior. Children are integrated, as appropriate, into  classrooms in our Early Learning Preschool Program (ELP) to target social skills, classroom/group skills and generalization of skills. Upon entry, the Verbal Behavior-Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP) will be administered. The overall results of the VB-MAPP will provide valuable information that will serve as a guide for the development of an effective individualized language, social skills and learning curriculum for your child. The Teach Me program is supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. We work with children ages 2-6. A number of scheduling options are available for this program, including full day (8-3) sessions two, three or five days a week.
