At ACES, we provide a wide range of autism services, all of which are based on the most current Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) strategies. Our therapies are designed to promote significant progress in functionality and independence for children with autism. These therapies include ABA programming, occupational therapy, speech therapy, group programming, and counseling services. We work to help children with autism overcome the unique challenges they face in life.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that has a wide range of impacts on how a person communicates and interacts with others. Symptoms of the disorder may range from mild to severe and can include difficulty with communication, repetitive behaviors, problems with social interaction, and sensory sensitivities. Autism therapy is designed to help children with ASD make progress in their functionality and independence by addressing core deficits in areas such as social skills, communication, play skills, self-help skills, sensory integration issues, academic learning difficulties, or other developmental delays that are not progressing at a normal rate for a child's age. With appropriate intervention, children with autism can make great strides in their development, and lead more fulfilling lives.
If you are looking for autism therapy services for your child, ACES in Killeen and Fort Cavazos is an optimal choice. They use Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) practices and methodologies, which is a scientifically-based approach that employs learning principles to help children with autism acquire new skills and behaviors. This approach is effective because it focuses on positive reinforcement for correct responses, small tasks at a time, and multiple skills such as social and language skills, as well as daily living skills. Thus, ABA helps to motivate children to learn and make progress.
