Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is ideal for children on the autism spectrum struggling with sensory issues, communication problems, social skills, temper tantrums or changes in routine. It is a proven strategy for understanding behavior and how it is affected by the environment. ABA is widely recognized as a safe and effective way to help people with autism live happy and productive lives. The ABA approach is endorsed by a number of state and federal agencies, including the U.S. Surgeon General.

 

Sprouts ABA Group Services

Sprouts is a group treatment program at Laurel Life’s Browns Mill Rd. location for preschool aged children experiencing skill deficits and/or developmental delays in areas such as: Cognitive and Social Interactions, Communication and Language, Play and Daily Living, and Emotional Regulation and Sensory Difficulties

Treatment Design

Sprouts group provides a wide range of age-appropriate behavioral and skill building activities through structured daily programming. The hands-on learning experiences prepare individuals for the school setting while expanding and developing life skills. ABA is the framework for each child’s individualized assessment and goal targets while attending Sprouts. A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) Clinical Specialist oversees all programming. One-to-one breakout instruction with a licensed ABA therapist is incorporated for all children attending the group.  

 

Sprouts is a year-round program running on a schedule of six weeks in session, followed by a two-week break.  Frequency and duration of breakout sessions is adjusted based on progress. Small groups with a 1 staff: 3 child ratios allow for the focused skill building and treatment to occur within the group classroom setting.  Progress reviews are every six weeks.
