Research shows that early diagnosis of and intervention for autism are proven to be more likely to have major positive effects on symptoms and later developing skills. ABA has been found to be effective by numerous agencies, such as the U.S. Surgeon General, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the National Autism Center. Comprehensive early intervention programs may help improve cognitive, communicative, social, emotional, and adaptive functioning.
Environments are arranged to stimulate interest through the use of preferred items, desired activities, as well as, novel items and activities. An assessment of the learner’s developmental age is conducted in order to identify strengths and potential areas of skill deficits. Specific goals are outlined to address skill deficits and any other barriers to learning identified during the assessment.
Infinite Abilities provides comprehensive evidence-based treatment to meet the unique needs of each child and family. A variety of skills are often targeted within each learner’s individualized program including, but not limited to: functional communication, expressive and receptive language skills, play and leisure, social skills, visual perceptual skills, imitation, school readiness, classroom routine/group skills, self-care, daily living, and tolerating skills.
A combination of teaching methods are used including verbal behavior (VB), discrete trial teaching (DTT), and natural environment teaching (NET) to help ensure learner’s acquire functional skills. Strategies to increase generalization of skills across settings, situations, and people are embedded within each learner’s program.
The intensity of services a child receives are based on the child’s and family’s needs along with current assessment. Early intervention often consists of children receiving 25-40 hours per week.
