Teaching Social & Life Skills
Some people believe ABA therapy programs only benefit early learners, however there are some individuals who require continued support throughout their academic careers. Our Life Skills Program works in collaboration with parents and schools to focus on functional language, social skills, pre-vocational, and other life skills. These focuses are meant to be practical and useful for real life situations - preparing these skills has the potential to greatly improve quality of life.
Children and teens enrolled in this program are given opportunities to explore their interests and practice tasks of daily living. Our instructions are individualized and customized for each learner, as every child is unique. Each of our ABA programs meet the individual's and family's needs, with the opportunity to grow and adapt with them.
