Our Services

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a profession that helps people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations).

Occupational therapy services typically include:

  • an individualized evaluation, during which the client/family and occupational therapist determine the person’s goals,
  • customized intervention to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals, and
  • an outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan.

Behavioral Assessment, Consultation and Training

Consultation is available to all children with challenging behaviors regardless of diagnosis. Consultation includes a detailed Functional Behavior Assessment and recommendations using evidence-based behavioral strategies.

Training is available to Parents and Caregivers, Early Intervention Staff, Child Care Providers, School Administrators, Teachers, and Paraprofessionals.

          Applied Behavior Analysis

          Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a therapy based on the science of learning and behavior. ABA applies our understanding of how behavior works to real situations. The goal is to increase behaviors that are helpful and decrease behaviors that are harmful or affect learning.

          ABA therapy programs can help:

          • Increase language and communication skills
          • Improve attention, focus, social skills, memory, and academics
          • Decrease problem behaviors

          Applied Behavior Analysis involves many techniques for understanding and changing behavior. ABA is a flexible treatment:

          • Can be adapted to meet the needs of each unique person
          • Provided in many different locations – at home, at school, and in the community
          • Teaches skills that are useful in everyday life
          • Can involve one-to-one teaching or group instruction
