ABA TherapyABA works by using behavioral principles to increase or decrease behaviors by changing the events before and after the behavior. Using data-based decision-making ensures effective programming. ABA can cover a wide range of skills from language to self-help to social skills.
Speech Therapy focuses on both the production (speech) and use (language) of communication. Therapy may focus on exercises to strengthen oral motor skills and/or activities to understand and use language concepts.
Occupational Therapy works to strengthen the brain-muscle connection involved in completing everyday tasks such as self-help skills, handwriting, and more. OT may also integrate sensory activities to assist children in processing the world around them more effectively.
