Facilitating Growth Through Connection
We are committed to broadening and improving the lives of children through Applied Behavior Analysis.
How We Can Support
Clinic Based Therapy
We provide in-home consultations, assessments, and therapy sessions to improve the dynamics between the child and society.
Social skills groups are scheduled in 8-12 week increments throughout the Spring, Summer, and Fall.
We are committed to broadening and improving the lives of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other developmental delays. We provide individualized, scientifically-based services through Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) in Salt Lake, Wasatch and Summit Counties. We believe that every child has the capacity to learn. We use ABA as a methodical approach to teaching communication, social and functional living skills. We will work with your child and family to create a target-specific plan that is most essential to increasing your child’s independence and quality of life.
We prioritize a gentle approach that takes into consideration a child’s bodily autonomy and free will. We are dedicated to creating a positive, least restrictive environment wherein a child may learn, grow, and access reinforcing experiences. We believe that ABA is merely a tool used in the broader picture of therapy. We happily work alongside other professionals, including teachers, speech pathologists, occupational therapists, mental health providers and medical doctors.
Each child presents a different set of strengths and weaknesses. We strive to focus on strengths so that we can meet the child where they are at, and build on their current skills and interests. We do not use a one size fits all approach, each program is tailored to individual needs and evaluated weekly by the behavior analyst.
Maintaining Client Dignity
We respect the unique individuality of each child with whom we work. We strive to reduce challenging behaviors by replacing them with functional communication and self advocacy skills. Our goal is to assist a child on the path to unlocking their full potential.
We realize that Autism and other neurodivergences impact the entire family unit. We belive that celebrating neurodiversity starts in the home. Our mission is to educate and empower families so that they have the skills and knowledge necessary to support their loved one.
Working Together With You
Let us help your child discover the many possibilities that await them!
Neurodiversity Affirming Practice
Neurodiversity is the concept of natural differences across the spectrum of human brains. Each person has something unique and valuable to offer the world due to their neurological differences. Neurodiversity can include individuals across the spectrums of Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia, etc
Safety Care® Crisis Prevention
The preventative focus is designed to be an active part of an organization’s restraint prevention and elimination initiative. Our goal is to help you prevent crises so you don’t have to manage them. If there is a crisis, we provide safe and effective tools for management, too.
Frequently Ask Questions
What is ABA therapy?
Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is the science in which the principles of behavior are applied systematically to improve socially significant behavior and experimentation is used to identify the variables responsible for behavior change” (Cooper, Heron, & Heward, 2007). In simpler terms, ABA is the science of altering the environment and applying strategies to reduce challenging behaviors while increasing adaptive behaviors. We believe that each individual should be part of the planning process for their engagement in ABA therapy. ABA therapy targets social skills (in a neurodiversity affirming way), communication, daily living skills and more by applying evidence-based methods to improve a child’s ability to interact with their natural environment. We focus on the use of intrinsic motivation to work with the child while promoting a safe and controlled environment, giving them the best chance at success. Our approach is completely individualized for each child. We seek to understand the function (or the reason) behind each behavior with the knowledge that behavior is communication. We attempt to listen to this communication by implementing evidence-based interventions while keeping a neurodiversity-affirming approach in mind each step of the way.
