Handprint Therapies ABA Language & Communication
At Handprint Therapies, all our RBTs utilize functional communication ABA to teach and expand language in non-verbal and non-vocal individuals. We understand that no two children are the same and our speech intervention and ABA programs for language development should reflect that. By customizing each child’s ABA therapy to their unique challenges, we can maximize their learning and growth.
Initial Language & Communication Assessment
First, our ABA therapists want to identify the milestone development areas for your child. We will conduct behavior assessments, including a functional behavior assessment to determine the reasons behind your child’s challenging behavior. This assessment is then used to create an intervention plan that involves the best approach and techniques to shape and teach communication.
ABA for Language Development & Higher Communication
Following your child’s behavior and communication assessment, our team evaluates which of our functional communication training ABA strategies can be used to help your child. Our goal is to help your child find functional modes of communication so that they can express their wants, needs, and uniqueness. Ultimately, language development leads to social confidence and independence.
Speech Therapy + ABA Therapy
Handprints Therapies actively encourage our learners to participate in co-treatment sessions with speech therapy during their ABA sessions. Our ABA therapists collaborate closely with your child’s speech therapist to provide them with more practice and efficient learning. The ABA team learns the techniques and other teaching tools from the speech therapist to carry this learning into their ABA sessions to accelerate their growth.
