School Consultation Services
ABA Therapy in Schools
Most often we are able to provide ABA services in schools. Our team will work with you through the process of setting up your child receiving ABA therapy in school.
At Positive Behavior Services, we are proud to collaborate with private and public schools in the regions we serve with tailored ABA therapy in schools. We understand that the learning and behavioral needs of students with developmental and behavioral disabilities are diverse and require specialized support.
About Our Approach
ABA therapy is a valuable approach that can be effectively applied within school settings to provide the necessary support and promote positive outcomes for students. We know that it can make a real difference in supporting the learning and behavioral needs of students with developmental and behavioral disabilities.
As part of our consultation services, we team up with school staff to create personalized ABA programs catering to each student’s needs. We’re all about working together, which means teachers, therapists, and parents play important roles. Using proven ABA techniques, we can help students reach their academic goals, improve their behavior, and have a better overall school experience. Positive Behavior Services offers ABA therapy in public and private schools in Florida and Georgia.
Can my child receive ABA Therapy at school?
Though it depends on your district and school resources, the answer is usually yes. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy school programs teach techniques to help kids with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) learn and grow. The program uses strategies that have been proven to work, so students can learn academic and social skills while also getting help with any behaviors that might be getting in the way of their learning.
What do ABA school programs focus on?
ABA school programs often use discrete trial training (DTT), which involves breaking down complex skills into smaller, more manageable steps. The child is given repeated opportunities to practice each step, with positive reinforcement used to encourage successful completion. ABA therapy in schools may also use naturalistic teaching strategies, such as incidental teaching, in which the child’s interests are used to motivate learning.
These school programs often focus on the problem behaviors that are interfering with the student’s educational integration and success. A functional behavior assessment is developed with interventions that will be implemented in the school setting. A team approach will be developed to train the teachers, paraprofessionals and any other professionals working with the student in the school.
If you believe that your child would benefit from autism therapy within their school environment, we encourage you to reach out to us. Our dedicated team is here to support you throughout the process so your child can access the services to meet their needs.
