ABA Services

Our program offers applied behavior analysis (ABA) programs with a specialization in applied verbal behavior (AVB), discrete trial instruction and natural environment teaching for children on the autism spectrum. Experienced board-certified behavior analysts and registered behavior technicians help children to understand and use language for functional and social communication. Our program is an ABA/AVB program that begins with the family working with the BCBA and RBT in their home with their child. The family is trained by TPI staff and supported with weekly, biweekly or monthly visits to provide feedback, ongoing training, guidance regarding the direction of goals, and ensure that progress is being made toward the child’s established goals.
