1:1 ABA SERVICES DESIGNED FOR YOUR CHILD

 

Connections Behaviour Consulting offers in-person services at our various locations. ABA services will be tailored to every client in the form of a focused or comprehensive program. If you have specific goals in mind, focused ABA can help you reach them. A comprehensive ABA program offers intensive interventions to address behavioural concerns and build skills. Common goals include: 

  • Communication skills

  • Self-help 

  • Academics 

  • School readiness 

  • Social skills 

ABA services always begin with a comprehensive skills assessment and are overseen by a BCBA®. 

REMOTE OPTIONS: TELEHEALTH

 

We are passionate about providing services for those who may not have access to ABA therapy due to geographical reasons. Telehealth services seek to improve a client's well-being through the use of two-way video and audio conferencing. Telehealth can follow a focused ABA model, where we work 1:1 with your child on specific learning goals, or our parent coaching model, where we provide you with strategies to help with daily life. 

  • What is Applied Behaviour Analysis?
    Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is the science of behaviour and how we learn. This refers to principles which affect behaviour change and how the environment affects behaviour.
  • What is the goal of ABA therapy?
    ABA therapy is an evidence-based approach for increasing socially significant behaviours and decreasing those behaviours which disrupt everyday life and prevent individuals from participating in activities that are meaningful to them.
  • How can ABA therapy increase skills?
    By breaking down big goals and complex skills into simple and manageable steps, ABA therapy helps make certain skills accessible to those who are struggling to learn them. ABA therapy is systematic and data-driven. The therapy team collects data on the skills they are trying to improve to know if their teaching is working. This allows us to make changes quickly if an intervention is not helping.
  • Can ABA therapy help my child overcome challenging behaviour?
    At Connections Behaviour Consulting, we view all behaviour as communication. When a child is engaging in challenging behaviour, such as aggression or tantrums, the behaviour-analytic approach is to figure out why. When we know what message a child is sending by engaging in this behaviour, we can modify their environment so they are less likely to resort to challenging behaviour, give them the support they need, and provide them with alternative methods of communication.
  • How many hours of ABA therapy should my child do per week?
    This depends on their goals! Your child's needs, the complexity of their behaviour and what works best for your family will all affect how many hours of therapy your child participates in per week. Some children may thrive with fewer hours per week, while others require a higher intensity to reach their goals.
  • Do you collaborate with schools and other professionals?
    Yes! Collaboration across environments and individuals is key to your child's success. We are always happy to collaborate with schools and other service providers (e.g., occupational therapists or speech-language pathologists) to ensure that your child is getting the best care possible.

PARENT COACHING

empower

family

WE'RE HERE TO HELP YOU & YOUR FAMILY THRIVE

 

We know that day-to-day tasks and routines can be a struggle, and we are here to help. Parent coaching is available for parents who want to focus on specific goals at home or learn more about how they can incorporate ABA principles into their daily lives. Parent coaching can focus on goals such as:

  • Toilet training 

  • Daily schedules

  • Tolerating non-preferred, but necessary activities (e.g., dentist visits)

  • Daily living skills

  • Bedtime routines

  • Playing with siblings 

We use a behavioural skills training model (BST) for parent coaching sessions and all training is overseen by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA®).
