More than just ABA
Have you ever heard an ABA company say "ABA has speech and OT 'built in'?" Our philosophy is there are specialties out there for a reason. ABA specializes in changing behaviors, which can include communication behaviors and motor behaviors, but to get the highest level of treatment working with the right specialist can make all the difference.
So what is the Whole child difference?
ABA is a BEHAVIORAL therapy,
Speech and OT are NEUROLOGICAL* therapies, and
Mental Health is a PSYCHOLOGICAL therapy.
Knowing this distinction can help parents understand and pursue the best combination of treatment for their child. All 4 of our therapies integrate concepts and principles from each other, however, each therapy is specialized to treat behaviors, brain development, or emotional/coping skills.
Best part is, all 4 therapies are in one place!
Because all 4 disciplines are on the same team with daily interactions, we work together in ways that most autism teams cannot. This collaboration makes it possible to target the WHOLE CHILD!
*By "Neurological" we mean that speech and OT target creating new synapses in the brain to create better processing and synthesis of information.
With all the right elements we can make the Greatest difference
