"Life-Changing Outcomes for Exceptional Kids"

School Based ABA Services

Often times, the school setting provides an extremely challenging environment for a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or related disabilities. With so many distractions and other children, the educational progress can be limited. First Children Services contracts with public and private schools in New Jersey and Pennsylvania to manage the treatment and education of students with ASD and/or other behavioral challenges. We provide ABA Services in the school and/or home according to the needs of each individual student. By outsourcing home and/or school based ABA services to First Children Services, schools often save precious resources. Our highly trained staff will provide specific behavioral interventions as needed.

Our home and school based ABA services are delivered by trained behavior technicians and supervised Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs). We employ the use of web-based data collection for tracking progress and ultimately monitoring results.

Since my child has started receiving services from First Children I have noticed an improvement in the areas of both academics and social skills.  As a teacher for the last 20 years, I am well aware of the necessity of both these areas in daily student life.  Being able to navigate both the written and hidden curriculum are integral to student success.  In the hours that my child has spent with the therapists of First Children, I have noticed an improvement in his verbal skills and ability to relate to others.  As a parent, knowing that my child is with a professional who is caring and knowledgeable has given me peace of mind and confidence that my child can continue to move forward in a positive direction and not have his skills regress or plateau.  Have First Children as a resource in the public school system has been helpful to the classroom teacher and school therapists.   Autism can be very crushing to the family unit.  The work and improvements I have seen in my child since he’s had First Children has been nothing short of amazing to me“—  Parent of child receiving school based ABA therapy
