Widely recognized as a safe and effective treatment, the use of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) techniques to help people with autism live happy and productive lives has expanded rapidly in recent years. Today, the ABA approach is endorsed by a number of state and federal agencies, including the U.S. Surgeon General.
Ideal for children struggling with sensory issues, communication problems, social skills, temper tantrums or changes in routine, ABA is a proven strategy for understanding behavior and how it is affected by the environment.
PROMOTING MEANINGFUL BEHAVIOR CHANGE
ABA intervention can help children and families make meaningful, lasting changes in many areas. In fact, nearly all children on the autism spectrum, as well as other cognitive and developmental delays, benefit from intensive ABA programs.
PERSONALIZED, FLEXIBLE APPROACH
Every aspect of Laurel Life’s ABA interventions are personalized to reflect the unique behavioral, educational and developmental needs of the child. Our board certified behavior analysts develop treatment programs, combining intensive teaching and behavior modification techniques to help individuals receiving treatment to:
• Increase skills in language, play and socialization
• Decrease challenging behaviors that interfere with
learning and daily life
• Reduce or eliminate ritualistic or self-injurious behaviors
• Increase attention span
• Improve adaptive skills
• Increase independence
HOW IT WORKS
Following an initial Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA), our behavior analysts develop a customized treatment protocol that includes intensive teaching in the areas of social, communication, motor, cognitive and self-regulation skills as well as parent training. These services may take place in the home, at school or in community settings.
At Laurel Life, ABA is provided as a form of Intensive Behavioral Health Services (IBHS) funded through PA Medical Assistance. For eligibility, all individuals must be enrolled in the PA Medical Assistance program to qualify. Additional coverage by primary insurances varies by plan. Please provide primary insurance information, to determine if Laurel Life accepts your insurance.
