"Life-Changing Outcomes for Exceptional Kids"

“My son has been to numerous programs. First Children Services is the only one who understood his needs, came up with an individualized plan to meet them, and made my family feel supported and valued.”

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a time tested and data based strategy for teaching children with autism spectrum disorder or related diagnoses. Studies have shown that specific ABA techniques can help individuals learn specific skills, such as how to communicate, develop relationships, play, care for themselves, learn in school, succeed at work, and participate fully and productively in family and community activities. ABA interventions are not a “one size fits all” approach. Every aspect of ABA intervention is customized to each child’s skills, needs, interests, preferences, and family situation.
