Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services are offered to children, teens, and adults with different abilities and/or disabilities. We will work with you child in home, community, and/or school for a certain number of hours per week.
The goal is to create individualized interventions that focus on improving and increasing specific behaviors such as social skills, communication, and adaptive skills, all with the goal of increasing positive behaviors while preventing or decreasing undesired and/or maladaptive behaviors.
Autism Heroes services clients of all ages and levels of support needs. Whether lower support needs (previously referred to as "high functioning") or higher support needs (previously referred to as "low functioning"), we will work alongside the client toward any personal goals that they may have; whether they be educational, social, emotional, or independence driven, we will tailor our program to meet their goals.
Autism Heroes offers educational consulting! Our experienced staff can offer IEP assistance, help in building a personalized behavior plan for your student, and assistance in the implementation of this plan in partnership with your student's school.
IEP assistance can be done with our team outside of school jurisdiction. However, in-school services will be at the school district's discretion. Working alongside your student's school, we will communicate with administration to formulate the best course of action in ensuring your student's success.
While we offer in-home services and educational consulting, we also offer community-based services as well! We work alongside our clients on community safety, social skills, money handling, independence skills, and much more! We work with clients of all ages, ranging from children to adults, including those transitioning into adulthood out of a school setting and into a more independent atmosphere.
Whether it be budgeting, shopping, doctors' appointments, public and private transportation, and more, we can assist in community-based activities and skills for clients of all ages.
Behavioral feeding treatment is to help children with behavior based feeding difficulties, such as extreme picky eating and food selectivity. Using the principles and techniques based in ABA, the goal of the treatment is to increase the amount and variety of food consumed, as well as to decrease problem behavior during mealtimes.
We will conduct a thorough assessment of problem mealtime behaviors prior to implementing treatment. This will include conducting observations of a mealtime, questionnaires, and a review of medical records.
Please note, clearance from a client's primary care physician is always required before implementing behavioral feeding treatment.
Autism Heroes offers Autism Diagnostic services performed by a licensed Medical Doctor. The evaluation includes a review of educational records, parent interview, assessment questionnaires, direct observation, and testing.
