What is ABA Therapy?

Applied Behavior Analysis is the leading, research-based methodology for bringing meaningful, positive change for individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities and delays. The best ABA programs are customized to fit the needs and preferences of each unique child and their family. It is utilized in real-world settings such as school, home, and the local community.

Goals include developing communication, social and self-help skills. Data collection is used consistently to ensure that interventions are effective and goals are being met.

ABA Addresses:
– Problem behaviors
– Language and communication
– Play skills
– Self-help skills
– Social skills
– Parent education

Do you diagnose children?

No, we do not give formal diagnoses. If you have concerns about your child’s development or behavior, a Diagnostic Evaluation can be scheduled. This Evaluation can then be brought to your child’s paediatrician or child psychologist/psychiatrist to be used as a Professional Recommendation for Diagnosis.

Who pays for therapy? Are the costs covered by health insurance?

The costs for therapy can be covered in a variety of ways. In most cases, the local city government covers some of the therapy costs. Services can also be covered privately.

Please schedule an appointment and we can discuss various ways for you to receive the proper funding and coverage for you to get access to the treatment your child needs.

What language is the therapy provided in?

We provide therapy and parent consultations in both English and German.

Is ABA Therapy only for Autism?

No, ABA addresses specific behaviors, regardless of a diagnosis, and incorporates individualized programs to target those behaviors.
At LAB, we support all children with a variety of needs.

-Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
-Global Developmental Delay/Disorder
-Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)

What makes ABA therapy different from the other available therapies and treatments?

ABA is the only evidence-based therapeutic treatment that is recognised as an effective and safe method for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), and has been endorsed by a number of agencies, including the U.S. Surgeon General, the American Psychological Association, and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. A number of studies have shown that ABA is an evidence-based practice that can help to build a variety of skills while decreasing challenging behaviors at the same time.

How does ABA help?

ABA can be used to teach a number skills and behaviors. This includes academic skills, participating in extra-curricular activities, addressing speech difficulties, accomplishing family-centered goals (e.g. sitting at the dinner table, engaging in family activities, etc.) and addressing problem behaviors (e.g. tantrums, biting, head banging, etc.).
