IN HOME ABA SERVICES

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is based upon learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors. In home ABA services are part of ARICA (An Act Relative to Insurance Coverage for Autism), state law requiring private health insurances to provide coverage for the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder. ABA has been endorsed by the National Institutes of Health and has been identified by the Surgeon General of the United States as the most effective way to treat ASD. According to the National Autism Center’s National Standards Report (2009), data collected through hundreds of studies indicate that ABA is a highly effective method to teach children and adolescents with ASD.

 

CENTER BASED SOCIAL SKILL PROGRAMS

Centered based services provide children with additional support in the form of afterschool programs and social skills programs.  These programs assist the child in learning social cues and how to respond in socially appropriate ways.  The programs are also part of the ARICA law requiring private insurance to cover treatment to increase socials skills.

 

FAMILY OUTREACH

When a child receives a diagnosis of autism, it can be an emotional time for the family.  Parents are often confused about what services are available and often feel isolated.  Family outreach brings other families with similar experiences together.  It can include an opportunity to network, share ideas, and support to obtain assistance.

 

PRE-VOCATIONAL & TRAINING

Graduating from high school is a significant transition for all students.  Research published in the Journal of Disability Policy Studies has noted that “having held a paid, community-based job while still in high school was strongly correlated with post school employment success.”  Venture’s Employment Support program assists young adults by teaching employment skills that will lead to gainful employment.
