At The Behavior Exchange, we recognize that every child is unique. Each and every program is specifically selected and adapted for the child based on the parent’s initial consultation, assessment, and careful observation. Using proactive and specialized teaching, the intensive, One-on-One sessions address behaviors including: compliance, instruction following, language, sibling relationships, age-appropriate play, social, motor, and self-help skills.
How does it work?
• One-on-one therapy pairs one child with one our degreed ABA therapists. The therapists work individually with the child during sessions lasting 1-4 hours. The nature of one-on-one therapy is highly intensive to give children the extra time and attention they need to master specific behaviors and skills.
• There are two major styles of one-on-one therapy – discrete trial and naturalistic. We take advantage of both. In both types of therapy, we use the proprietary curriculum of The Behavior Exchange. Over 20 years of experience, we’ve developed programs that thousands of skills and behaviors that children with autism and other learning differences are challenged to master. Naturalistic therapy, on the other hand, is to take advantage of teachable moments that might occur naturally during any one-on-one session.
• The focus of one-on-one therapy varies from child to child. It can range from basic skills, like responding to their name or speaking their first sounds, to more advanced areas, such as building fluency in reading, writing, and math.
•Most often, one-on-one therapy focuses on communication and language skills, visual performance and working memory, early learning and academic skills, instruction following, sibling relationships, age-appropriate play, motor and self-help skills, and interacting with peers to develop social skills.
•The overall goal of one-on-one therapy is for children to master the necessary compliance and cooperation skills to successfully participate in Group Therapy that will continue to help them reach their full potential and to make friends.
Is it right for my child?
• One-on-one therapy is the starting point for many children and parents who come to The Behavior Exchange.
• Children typically range in age from 2-12 with varying degrees of abilities and needs. Most lack the basic compliance and cooperation skills to successfully participate in our Behavior Exchange Early Start (B.E.E.S.) and Social Skills programs.
•The most important thing to remember is that all children can benefit from one-on-one therapy, because it is intensive and tailored to the unique needs of each child.
What can I expect?
• ABA therapy is all about measurable improvement. As our therapists work one-on-one with your child, they will constantly collect data that charts your child’s progress with each skill as well as any setbacks that impede their ability to learn. Over time, the collected data can be used to hone therapy for even better results.
• All Behavior Exchange therapists are closely supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) to ensure children are making progress and achieving their specific goals.
• As a parent, you’ll receive daily reports on your child’s progress as well as monthly session summaries. You’ll also be able to observe your child’s therapy sessions, meet with your child’s BCBA to discuss any concerns you have, and participate in parent training to learn how to apply ABA techniques at home.
• Best of all, you will see your child making progress!
