At Milestones, we use Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to offer highly customized programs for each individual we work with – from toddlerhood through adulthood. ABA is a scientifically-validated treatment that allows us to maximize each child’s potential by breaking down each skill into small, achievable steps, or milestones, and use a combination of evaluation and positive reinforcement to evaluate, teach, and reach each individual’s goals.
The process always begins with evaluation. ABA is data-driven and science-based, so we start by gathering baseline information and preparing a detailed plan for each individual we serve. There are no cookie-cutter treatments. We work with families, school districts, doctors – any member of your child’s team is an important piece of the process.
We strive to create programs that are flexible and allow for creative strategies to increase appropriate behavior and teach new skills. Our extensively trained staff work with each individual to reach measurable goals in the areas of communication, social skills, play skills, and others in a variety of settings. We collaborate with a variety of other disciplines based on the individual’s needs. Progress is tracked and strategies are revised to achieve the most positive outcomes possible.
Our goal is to help improve the lives not only of each individual we work with, but their loved ones as well. Our mission is to apply the power of behavior analysis to improve the lives of people with developmental disabilities or other educational needs. We have seen the power of our science lead to true transformation.
ABA is the only treatment for ASD that is endorsed by both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Surgeon General. There are hundreds of reports in peer-reviewed journals supporting its effectiveness. To learn more about how ABA can help your child, contact us today.
