Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy can teach skills and modify behaviors. ABA is the practice of applying the science and principles of behavior and learning in a systematic way to alter socially significant behavior in individuals.
ABA therapy fosters basic skills such as looking, listening, requesting and imitating, as well as complex skills such as reading, conversing, and understanding another person’s perspective. Behavior services include direct 1:1 implementation of behavior support plans under the supervision of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. This service addresses challenging behaviors that may put the individual’s health and safety, or the safety of others, at risk and can be implemented in the home, community, or on site.
At GoldStar, we shape communicative intent to allow each individual to find their voice and connect with the world, through functional and intentional communication.
Our Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) and Speech-Language Pathology assistants (SLP-As) help individuals develop skills for successful communication. These skills can affect all aspects of everyday life, from communicating basic needs to developing relationships to progressing in school.
SLP’s also work with parents or caregivers to provide training and education, as well as work collaboratively with professionals from other disciplines at GoldStar, including ABA therapists, case managers, and occupational therapists to ensure the skills learned in speech therapy are carried over to other environments.
