In a brand new facility conveniently located within a few miles of Columbia Pike, our Silver Spring location offers both our Day Programs and After School Programs.
As a parent, you always want to do what’s best for your child. Often, what your child needs to be their best self goes beyond what you can provide at home. Every child needs extra support in different areas of their lives, and you want to know that you’re getting the right help and are working with professionals you can rely on.
Mission Autism Clinics provides autism services in Silver Spring, MD, including applied behavioral analysis for children and teens with autism. With this service, we can help your child reach new milestones and overcome many of the challenges that autism can cause.
You may have already heard of applied behavioral analysis before, as it’s one of the most common treatment programs. ABA therapy programs have long been considered the gold standard for autism treatment, and Mission Autism Clinics is proud to provide this service to children, teens, and their families.
What to Expect from ABA Therapy
Before starting ABA therapy, you want to have a good understanding of what it’s about and how it will help your child. If you’re considering ABA therapy, you might be wondering how exactly it works. ABA therapy looks different for everyone, but there are a few helpful things to know beforehand.
Here are a few things you can expect when your child gets started with
At Mission Autism Clinics, we know that your child is unique, so the support they need won’t be exactly like another child with autism. With this in mind, we tailor our services to each child’s needs to help provide them with the best support. We work closely with you and your children to assess their needs and develop a treatment plan just for them that reflects their skills and abilities and what we can do to help them grow.
ABA therapy isn’t just for your child, and treatment doesn’t stop when you get home. To make this treatment more effective, the whole family needs to be involved. Home is where your child spends most of their time, and their families need to have resources and guidance that can help them at home. Mission Autism Clinics keeps family members involved in treatment to ensure that everyone is on the same page and has the support they need.
One-on-One and Group Sessions
One-on-one sessions with one of our dedicated team members help us get to know your child better and assess their progress. As children grow and develop over the course of their program, the support they need may change, and we can help ensure their needs are being met. Group sessions are also an important part of ABA therapy. Children and teens can interact with their peers and learn to develop social skills, including conversation skills and building and maintaining friendships.
