ABA Therapy for Treating Autism
We offer one-on-one intensive ABA therapy for children ages 1-10 using a 3-phase program that prepares your child to enter mainstream or special education schools. The ultimate goal of our customized 3-phase program is to teach your child to naturally learn from his or her environment.
TDLC Customized ABA Programs
Individualized Data Programming
Your child will have his or her own individual data program that is specific to their needs in order to target areas that need improvement.
Language & Communication Improvement
We help your child by expanding upon language and communication skills using natural environmental training and incidental learning.
Behavior Intervention Plans
With cooperation between you (the parent) and our staff, we use proper instruction and positive reinforcement to help your child modify and or improve behaviors.
TDLC Customized ABA Programs
Our Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA treatment) programs are divided by two different categories based on age and or developmental stages of your child as defined below:
ABA Therapy for Younger Children
For younger children, our goal is to improve communication and social interactions and teach basic skills. Areas we help your child with include:
- Sound pairing, sign language, or PECS (depending on the child's needs and abilities) to increase communication
- Fine/gross motor skills
- Self-help skills - potty training, feeding, getting dressed, etc.
- Tacts, mands, imitating, receptive skills, and expressive skills
ABA Therapy for Older Children
For older children, our goal is independent work, improving social skills, and for your child to be able to entertain himself/herself with varied productive tasks.
- Vocational training and choice making
- Regulating emotions
- Multiple-step activities - e.g. making a sandwich, doing laundry, cleaning his/her room
- Receptive and expressive language skills
- Visual Perceptual Skills, Social and Play Skills, and Direction Following
- Visual schedules
Getting Your Child in an ABA Therapy Program at TDLC
To set up an appointment at one of our centers, please call us at 713-993-7554. During your first appointment, a member of the administration team will give a tour of our facility and talk with you about different treatment options to find the one that will best suit your child's needs.
After the initial meeting, we will set up a second appointment to assess your child. The assessment lasts between an hour to an hour and a half long, and is performed by a member of our Programming Team. After the assessment is completed, the next step is to set up a schedule for your child to receive therapy. In general, it can take two to three weeks for us to get started, depending on insurance verification, scheduling availability, and the services to be provided.
*Please note that we cannot accept walk-ins; meetings are by appointment only.
