Based on the Science of Applied Behaviour Analysis
Spectrum’s primary objective is to provide individualized programming using ABA principles and procedures, to children and young adults, aged 2 years old and up, with autism spectrum or a related disorder, in order to increase their cognitive, language and social abilities in the home, school and community. ABA programs that take into account Skinner’s analysis of verbal behaviour (commonly referred to as “VB programs”), are at the core of Spectrum’s programs. Our knowledgeable and well-trained staff, develop and provide individualized programs based on each learner’s needs. Programming is delivered consistent with the effective teaching procedures (such as developing instructional control, fading in number, effort and difficulty of demands, maintaining a quick pace, delivering reinforcement immediately, and teaching to fluency). We work in collaboration with a variety of other professionals (including Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists and psychologists) on a case by case basis.
