For over 30 years in 4 continents, we have helped thousands of individuals with autism improve their quality of life through Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
All ABA progams begin with a comprehensive functional assessment including an extensive evaluation of the individual’s language, play, and social repertoires.
The VB-MAPP (Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program, Sundberg, 2008) or ABLLS (Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills, Partington & Sundberg, 1998) is used to identify language deficits that prevent the child from communicating, playing and socializing.
For children 0-5 years old, the Carolina Curriculum for Infants/Toddlers is used to see how the child functions compared to same age peers.
Skill deficits are probed within ABC’s generalization levels (REAL – Recreating Environments to Accelerate Learning, Terzich, 1996) to determine the level of generalization training needed to maintain the behaviors in the child’s daily life at home, in school, and the neighborhood.
