Communication is an important life skill that children learn at a very young age. Unfortunately, it is common for many children with autism to have delays in speech, and difficulty in communicating with others. Our ABA Therapy program provides language and communication in an effort to support children learn to communicate their needs. From day one we focus on teaching our clients how to advocate for themselves by requesting items and activities they want and need.
