with Heredia Therapy Group
Our BCBA therapists provide one-to-one services, meaning your child gets the full, undivided support of an expert. Additionally, we offer family training, which helps parents and siblings learn how ABA works and understand how they can support their loved ones.
ABA is a structured therapy method and gold-standard treatment option for addressing behavioral issues, learning difficulties related to autism and other neurodevelopmental differences, and more. ABA therapy can only be provided by an expertly trained clinician known as a BCBA, or Board-Certified Behavior Analyst.
Sometimes, these issues are caused by trauma, such as abuse or neglect. Sometimes, they happen as the result of developmental differences (such as autism, ADHD, learning disability, etc.) which make adapting and socializing difficult. And sometimes, issues can crop up because of the home environment, such as inconsistent rules or parent conflict. This is why BCBA therapists work both with the individual and the family to help get everyone on the path to wellness and functional success.
We know what it’s like to struggle and worry about loved ones with behavioral issues; and, we know things can get better. No matter how difficult things might seem, there is hope.
In addition to individual work, ABA also includes family training and support. With the right knowledge and guidance, parents and families can make a dramatic positive impact on their child’s progress.
Family training is designed to help you:
Once you get signed up to work with our team, our BCBA therapist will help set up the functional behavioral assessment. In addition, we also provide a full, comprehensive assessment to cover additional areas of functioning, including: such as communication, social, behavioral, safety, self-help and executive functioning.
Once we know what might be going on and what the diagnosis might include, the BCBA will design an adapted behavior plan for your child’s needs. We can then start a regular schedule for individual ABA therapy and family training in your home!
We offer psychiatric services to support our vision of healing hearts, changing habits, and transforming lives!
Our psychiatry department strives to provide the best care for our clients (children, teens, and adults), and that involves:
Your BCBA will conduct a functional behavioral assessment (FBA) to help pinpoint the target issues to focus treatment around. This allows the BCBA to specifically tailor and adapt treatment to the needs of the individual.
The BCBA works one-on-one with the child to do skills training and behavioral reinforcement. Behavioral reinforcement simply involves using rewards to shape and promote progress towards the goal. For example, if a child struggles with interrupting others in conversation, the therapist will reward them for waiting their turn to speak.
As your child makes progress and learns new skills, your therapist will adjust the goals and identify new behavior targets. Over time, your child can learn to become more functional and independent.
