With the belief that each child can learn, Verbal Beginnings promotes independence and improves the quality of life for children with developmental disabilities through a custom treatment approach based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis.
Plans are developed to reduce problem behaviors such as non-compliance, aggression, self-injury, and stimming.
Through vocal language, sign language, and/or picture exchange, children are taught how to communicate.
Picky eaters are taught to expand their food repertoire, while reducing behavior problems at the table.
Independence of toileting, washing, brushing, dressing, and other ADLs are taught using task analyses.
The ability to communicate and interact with others is taught using our Social Beginnings Curriculum.
The process is individualized for each person depending on their history, needs and coverage.
Upon receiving your intake paperwork our BCBAs will contact you to set up an initial consultation.
The BCBA will decide which assessments will be the most appropriate for your child.
Once the direct assessments are completed, the BCBA will develop a comprehensive treatment plan.
Direct therapy is delivered and progress is evaluated on an ongoing basis.
The BCBA will set up monthly meetings to implement family training.
The goal of our therapy is to generalize skills across all settings and people.
Verbal Beginnings was born out of the need of having quality in-home ABA therapy for children with autism and a supportive and educational network for families. Starting out with only 2 BCBAs and their vision to make a difference in the field, Verbal Beginnings quickly blossomed into a multi-state entity through word of mouth and the support of the community.
