One of the greatest strengths of our program at JumpStart Autism Center is our continual assessment of your child’s skills, allowing us to make changes to treatment to keep up with a child’s learning and to maximize their learning throughout the day, week, month and year.
Other providers may provide assessments on a biannual basis or even less frequently, and in some cases it can be several weeks before changes are made to your child’s Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) programs. In that scenario, time is wasted teaching and re-teaching skills your son or daughter have already mastered. Such a scenario is unacceptable because time is limited and your child deserves the best interventions possible.
By utilizing ongoing assessments, we can identify which skills have been learned, which will require additional time or practice and use this information to modify our treatment plan. Every child receives individualized attention and treatments designed to their specific needs.
The Initial Assessment
We offer an autism treatment assessment as the first step of developing an individualized treatment program. This initial assessment will look at a child’s development, using the Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP) and/or the Assessment of Basic Language and Learning-Revised (ABLLS-R). Based on this initial treatment assessment, we will start your child’s individualized Verbal Behavior and ABA interventions.
As you child makes progress though our Verbal Behavior curricula, we will be able to chart your child’s progress against these same developmental markers. By collecting data daily, we can identify trends in development and extrapolate to determine expected achievements. This highly specific data helps us to further tailor your child’s treatments to meet their specific needs; it also allows us to show you the definitive difference your child’s Applied Behavior Analysis program is having in their life!
ABA Intervention and Treatment for Autism
ABA is an evidence-based treatment for autism based on 35 years of research. The goal of ABA is to instill good habits that form the foundation for lifelong learning. By breaking down tasks into components and teaching these individually, rewarding good behavior, habits can be formed around concepts or behaviors that a child might otherwise struggle to learn.
