ABA Therapy at InBloom Autism Services

When looking for resources for their children, parents and caregivers are often left scratching their heads, wondering what the next step is. Generally, if you’ve observed any signs that may potentially point to autism in your child, the next step is to schedule a diagnostic evaluation. We’re proud to offer diagnostic evaluations in select service areas to help families jumpstart their path to treatment. Should a diagnosis lead to treatment including ABA therapy for autism, InBloom Autism Services is conveniently located in 7 states with multiple locations to serve your family’s needs!

What is ABA Treatment and Therapy?

Everyone learns differently, and we all have our own goals. This is part of what makes Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy so effective!

Our clinicians continually collect and analyze data about your child’s behavior to create individualized treatment plans to increase helpful behaviors and skills, and decrease not-so-helpful behaviors––those that pose a safety risk or interfere with learning and independence. Having access to real-time data allows the clinical team to adapt treatment plans to meet your child’s needs as they continue to grow and make progress.

ABA treatment services and therapy at InBloom are based heavily on naturalistic teaching methods. It might look like we’re just playing and having a blast (and we are), but our talented clinicians work in countless learning opportunities throughout the context of play and other preferred activities. During therapy sessions, your child will work on a variety of different skills such as communication, social, play, and much, much more!

Watch an episode from our Blooming Minds video series for an in-depth explanation of what ABA therapy is and how it works!

How can Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) Therapy help?

Expressive and Receptive Language skills are considered in the autism therapy treatment plans at InBloom.

Expressive & Receptive Language

In autism therapy, any way a person communicates is called Expressive Language. This includes things like exchanging pictures or using a communication device. On the other hand, Receptive Language is how we understand communication, like following directions, identifying items, or understanding actions.

Behavior Reduction at InBloom Autism Services helps by identifying unwanted or negative behaviors and reducing frequency by replacing these with positive behavior reinforecment.

Behavior Reduction

At InBloom, autism services focus on helping children develop new skills that replace challenging behaviors. Our approach involves understanding the reason behind the behavior and then teaching your child functional ways to communicate their needs or wants. This positive reinforcement strategy promotes desired behaviors and naturally reduces unwanted ones. Our therapists create individualized treatment plans based on your child’s unique strengths and goals, ensuring a positive and successful therapy experience.

Functional Communication skills at InBloom Autism Services include requesting access to an item or activity, asking for help or a break, and requesting attention.

Functional Communication

Teaching alternative behaviors and methods of communicating to replace undesired behaviors is part of important therapy at InBloom Autism Services. Thus, children get their needs met in an appropriate manner. Basic examples of Functional Communication skills include requesting access to an item or activity, asking for help or a break, and requesting attention.

Social and Group Skills

We offer a variety of engaging activities designed to help your child develop essential social skills like initiating and maintaining communication, turn-taking, problem-solving, and cooperative play. The advantage of our centers? Your child gets to practice these skills with peers at similar developmental levels, fostering a supportive and encouraging environment for growth. This social interaction builds confidence and provides opportunities for learning valuable life skills through play and collaboration.

What You Can Expect

Is ABA Autism Therapy right for my child?

Research has shown that our minds are most impressionable between the ages of 1 and 5. For this reason, early intervention (obtaining ABA therapy for autism at an early age) is key in ensuring your child is given the tools needed to develop meaningful skills that will prepare them for the classroom and everyday life. Our Care Team takes pride in walking each family through the ABA treatment process so that parents and caregivers can feel at ease knowing that they have a strong network of support dedicated to the growth and success of their child.

In this episode of Blooming Minds, one of our Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) explains the onboarding process for starting ABA therapy services with us!

What You Can Expect

What can I expect from ABA treatment?

ABA Therapy for autism is a marathon, not a sprint. Therefore, consistency is key to maximizing each child’s success.

After assessing your child’s skills and needs, our clinicians develop a treatment plan typically ranging from 20 to 40 hours of care per week in a learning center. Once therapy begins, your kiddo’s network of support balloons in size, and most critical to their development is the relationship between their biggest advocates: you and their ABA team!

My daughter absolutely loves it!

We are so grateful for finding InBloom! I was shocked when she made more progress in her first 3 weeks at InBloom than she did the entire time at the other facility.

My son is so happy here!

Every interaction I've had there with anyone at all has been a pleasant one. It's always scary to leave my son somewhere the first time but the way he is eager to go back the next day instantly made me feel at ease. Everyone is so compassionate and I can already see slight changes in how he carries himself. I definitely recommend this Learning Center.

A career that leaves a positive lasting impact!

The most enjoyable part is seeing all of your effort paying off. When you can hear a child say something or even SING something, when they can't speak at all or in anything other than baby talk, is the most rewarding thing ever.

Caregivers are an essential part of our team.

Board Certified Behavior Analysts

BCBA

BCBAs (Board Certified Behavior Analysts) create the treatment plan which is then put into practice by RBTs (Registered Behavior Technician), so having a transparent, open line of communication with your BCBA is vital to your kiddo’s progress. Your BCBA also facilitates Caregiver Training sessions; structured one-on-one time for discussing your kiddo’s goals and development as well as practicing skills and techniques that will allow you and your family to continue making progress at home and in the community.

Registered Behavior Technician

RBT

Your RBTs are the ones who will be working directly with your kiddo and providing the treatment as outlined by the plan set by your BCBA. RBTs provide you with feedback and updates after each session, so be sure to continually discuss any improvements or challenges with them and the BCBA so the team can have all of the necessary information when considering the ABA Therapy treatment plan that will best suit your child’s needs.

Anyone Providing Care

Caregiver

We ask that all caregivers remain engaged in their child’s course of therapy, as your involvement is crucial to their progress. Ultimately, the clinical team’s goal is to see that your child meets their goals and is able to utilize the skills in-center, at home, and across all other environments. Aside from ongoing Caregiver Training sessions, keeping in communication with your RBTs and BCBA about successes, challenges, and general observations greatly boosts the efficacy of your kiddo’s ABA Therapy.
