ABA Early Intervention Program
Bright Beginning’s is an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) based program for children with developmental disabilities.
ABA is a scientifically proven intervention approach which uses principles that increase skills and decrease challenging behavior by using positive reinforcement strategies.
Our approach is individualized and incorporates the family’s goals for their child. We build on the child’s strengths and interests and use both structured and natural opportunities to facilitate learning.
Children diagnosed with Autism and other developmental disabilities ages 3 through kindergarten are eligible for this uniquely structured program.
ABA therapy is used to increase language and communication skills. It is also used to improve attention, focus, social skills, memory and academics. (Autism Speaks Parent's Guide)
