Behavior Intervention for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other Developmental Disabilities
Morning Star ABA Therapy provides highly individualized ABA programs for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders ranging from 12 months to 17 years old throughout Los Angeles County, San Diego County and Orange County, California. We work with disability levels ranging from low functioning to high functioning. Our programs are carried out in the child's everyday, natural environment such as home, school, after-school programs, community and special events. Our goal is to reduce behavioral problems and skill deficits associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders, while increasing independence, daily living, functional, social and communicative skills. We seek to improve the quality of life of our clients and their families while emphasizing the generalization of skills. Each client is assigned a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) who completes a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA), develops a comprehensive Autism treatment program and provides ongoing supervision and oversight on each case. Our ABA program utilizes multiple, scientifically validated ABA methodologies and proven ABA techniques which are integrated seamlessly into a comprehensive, natural environment based ABA program.
