Child Enrichment Center's treatment services are derived from the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Our Licensed Behavior Analyst (LBAs) and Certified Behavior Technicians (CBTs) use the most effective evidence-based teaching methods to help children make significant progress in language, play, social development, and classroom readiness skills. Parent training and involvement is the most integral part of the success of a child's early ABA intervention program. We are dedicated to working together with families to help them develop the strategies and tools they need to help their child continue to progress and grow for the rest of their lives.
Autism Intensive Treatment Program
The autism intensive treatment program is a 4-day a week early-intervention ABA program that is provided for the first 12-weeks. Each child receives 1:1 intensive instruction for 3 hours a day, weekly speech services from an SLP, and continuous program supervision by an experienced Licensed Behavior Analyst (LBA). Parents are required to participate in weekly training so that they can transfer their child's new skills into the home and community settings.
Basic ABA Treatment
After the initial 12-weeks in our intensive ABA day treatment program, we will drop the duration of our sessions to 1.5 hours 1- 4 days a week, using that time to work on the areas the child can benefit from in a clinic setting. As with any out-patient treatment provided to children in a clinic setting, parents are expected to transfer what they have learned and be the teacher to their child in all other settings. We are obligated to provide treatment services based on the child’s and family’s ability to benefit from the services provided in a clinic setting.
Social & Classroom Skills Training
Our center-based treatment program offers social skills groups and frequent peer interaction to help children learn to interact and work together. Our program also provides classroom training skills program for children 3-6 years of age upon the recommendation of the supervisor.
Supervisors use their observations, data collection, parent reports, and other documentation to provide individual recommendations regarding each child’s treatment and provide parents with the strategies and resources to help their child continue to progress in other learning environments.

Our Treatment Center
Changes to our services due to COVID-19: Our goal is to continue to provide quality and safe ABA services to your child. However, due to the social distancing rules in place, we are required to keep the number of people in our building small. Parents can meet their behavior technician outside and will complete a health check before your child enters the center. We have staggered the start and end session times to minimize the number of people congregating during drop off and pick up times. Staff will sanitize all surfaces after the your child leaves an area. For more information about our service changes due to COVID 19 rules for social distancing, contact us at email@example.com.
