Your child and you
At ABA Preschool Academy we know that every child is unique, and we assess each child’s individual needs.
At ABA Preschool Academy we are constantly monitoring our programs and staying informed on the latest research and applications to improve the lives of young children with a variety of special needs. While primarily serving children with a diagnosis of Autism, we recognise that the principles of applied behaviour analysis (ABA) are successful in developing new skills and reducing challenges for all children.
We know that every child is unique, and we assess each child’s individual needs, and develop appropriate intervention plans for children with a variety of diagnoses, including:
- Asperger’s Disorder
- Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Not Otherwise Specified (PDD.NOS)
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Communication Difficulties
Parents and families
We believe that effective interventions is a team effort with all parties working together for common goals. Partnership with parents is an integral component to the effectiveness of each child’s intervention. As such, Academy parents are active participants in their children’s programs and we are committed to supporting them in a variety of ways, including:
Partnership in the development of Individual Educational Plans
Parent training sessions
We are always happy to take suggestions from parents and develop training surrounding this area.
Participation during Instructional Sessions
We recognise it can sometimes be difficult for parents to understand how some activities or communication types are being taught. We are more than happy to take videos of your child in the classroom to help parents see and understand more about how their child is learning in the classroom. This can help parents to facilitate a similar model at home. For example, if a certain type of communication method is working well for a child in school, it is useful to show parents how this can work at home. We will always support parents in doing this at home and update parents as the child progresses.
