ABA Therapy Services in Central & Southern Jersey
If you live in Princeton or the surrounding area, you want the best possible education for your child with special needs. Our Central Jersey achievement behavior therapists benefit students, teachers and parents. Our national board certified applied behavior analysts have at least 12 years of experience evaluating and treating children with autism spectrum neurological disorders. Our therapist is educated above the master’s level and will strive to help your child reach his or her greatest potential.
Our services begin with an interview with you and your child within your family, his or her siblings. The whole family can input into your child’s initial assessment. If your child qualifies for our services based on our initial screening, our office manager with extensive experience advocating for children with autism spectrum disorders and their families will contact your insurance company.
Our Central Jersey Achievement Behavior Analyst continues to assess your child’s level of functioning and ability to learn with a variety of psychological surveys and tests. Your child’s initial intelligence, social behavior, and environmental intelligence scores are compared to other children his or her age and how your child compares to other children with autism spectrum disorders from Asperger’s to profound autism with a seizure disorder. Our licensed therapist attaches a diagnosis code to his test scores and develops a learning plan for your child. Your New Jersey medical insurance will pay for your child’s assessment and his or her treatment plan.
As Your Autistic Child Gets Older
Our applied behavior analysts can attend school with your child to help him or her make the best of opportunities to learn. Your child may need medication and behavior therapy. Our behavior therapist who taught your child how to get up, get dressed, and leave for school can teach your adolescent child about puberty and his or her developing body and changing hormones. Our applied behavior analysts can help your teenager understand body language, express new emotions and thoughts, and respect other students. Your autistic child must develop healthy relationships and learn adult living skills. Your teen must be taught personal hygiene, nutrition, how to cook, do laundry, and how to dress like an adult.
Public or Private School
Parents and autistic children vary in their intellectual abilities, knowledge, and experience. Parents may prefer to enroll their autistic child in a clinical program rather than educate their child in the public school. A combination of both may be best for your child. Parents need to make informed choices from public and private school curriculums. If your child has trouble paying attention, is disruptive, difficult to control, or endangers others, the public schools offer clinical alternatives.
Applied Behavior Analysts in School
Therapeutic day schools are open for students 12 to 21 years old with behavioral and emotional disorders, who are candidates for behavioral health hospitalization. Paradigm Therapeutic Day School combines clinical services and classroom instruction with child and adolescent psychiatrists continuously on the premises during the school day. The psychiatrists conduct examinations, review students’ progress, and prescribe medication when necessary.
Hard to Manage Children
If your autistic child is struggling in the public school, our applied behavior therapists can help your autistic child with a functional behavior assessment in complete compliance with your child’s teachers and school pursuant to the Federal Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Amendments of 1997. Your medical insurance pays for our cost-effective applied behavior services if your child has been expelled from the public school for ten days or more. Our board-certified Achievement Behavior Analysts report in detail how the dysfunctional or ungovernable behavior is related to your child’s autism spectrum disorder diagnosis.
ABA Therapy in School
Our board-certified achievement behavior analyst, as a consultant to your child’s public or private school, analyzes your child, his or her classroom, and the curriculums. Our consultants supply resources and work with educators to effectively manage autistic behavior in their classrooms. Your autistic child may be upset by changes in routines, schedules, temperature, or students walking around the room or in the halls. Your child may get angry or frustrated with uncomfortable feelings, fire drills, or another child’s screaming. Your child may fight with others, take his clothes off, or refuse to do as he’s told.
Behavior Intervention Plans
Your child’s ABA therapy behavior intervention plan targets his or her disruptive behavior and focuses on learning new skills, mathematics, problem solving, following directions, and written and oral communication. ABA therapists can develop individual learning plans for your child to help you supervise your autistic child. In compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, our behavior analyst drafts positive behavior supports for your child. Positive Behavior Supports are a written plan to reinforce positive behavior and improve your child’s social interactions.
ABA Therapy for Parents and Families
Our applied behavior analysts teach parents and siblings about childhood autism, specifically what is to be expected from your child or sibling. Our achievement behavior therapists can teach you how to respond consistently to your autistic family member’s repetitive behavior, reward constructive behavior, and change dangerous or destructive behavior. Our therapists are available to parents 24 hours each day to assist, answer questions, and make referrals. Our achievement behavior therapy support groups for parents enable you to socialize with adults, other parents of autistic children, and really relate to others who also have autistic children.
