ABA Groups

Our ABA groups are aimed at learners who require less intensive support than a 1:1 program would offer. Learning is still individualized and data driven, and the group size is determined by the learning needs of the participants.

  • Groups meet once a week for 8 weeks
  • Sessions are run by an Instructor Therapist and supervised by a Senior Therapist
  • Teaching occurs in small groups (2:1 to 4:1)
  • Skills are promoted in FUN atmosphere
  • Specific teaching goals are defined for each child
  • Individual goals are assessed and targeted

  • Ages 5-7, 8-11, and 12-14
