After School Excellence ABA Program
After School Excellence ABA Program is primarily designed for children ages 5-8. Children in this program typically receive 12-15 hours of ABA therapy per week. We utilize a variety of Applied Behavior Analysis strategies to help school-aged children learn critical skills like initiating requests and social interactions, answering social questions, independence, self-regulation, social play, waiting, taking turns, and more.
The therapists work on discrete trials, incidental teaching, structured play activities, and social skill development. The After School Excellence Program is designed to work together with the intervention parents provide at home. The importance of this is due to the number of therapy hours each week is often less than the standard recommended 25-35 hours of ABA per week.
Early Excellence ABA Day Program
The Early Excellence Program is an intensive, center-based ABA therapy program for children between the ages of 2 to 7 years old. Children in this program typically receive 25-35 hours of ABA therapy per week. In order to meet best practice standards, we strive to implement a minimum of 20 hours per week of ABA therapy with each child in our Early Excellence Program (National Research Council, 2001).
Our Early Excellence Program is ideal for toddlers and preschoolers in order to decrease core characteristics associated with autism and to teach pivotal skills they need to succeed in their earliest years and beyond. Our team implements evidence-based, one-on-one interventions that focus on teaching language, teaching play and social skills, working on learning readiness skills, and decreasing behaviors that inhibit learning in the natural context.
The Early Excellence Program’s aim is to prepare and teach necessary skills to enable a successful transition to a school setting. JoyBridge Kids staff works collaboratively with all of the child’s family members and service providers to promote a great outcome so they can be best prepared for a successful and fulfilling future.
