ABA Center-Based Programs

Alternatives ABA is not your average ABA center. Our multi-speciality approach to autism was designed to customize treatment for each child’s needs — and that includes center-based ABA programs that make learning and socializing fun. Families that choose to participate in speech and occupational therapy-coordinated care get all of their therapists on the same page and under one roof!

Why Choose Our Center-Based ABA Service?

For families who choose to expose their children to peers for socialization and to sensory activities, our ABA center provides intensive one-on-one therapy as well as group learning opportunities.

An Environment Built for Kids

Preparing for preschool and kindergarten has never been more fun with our ABA center’s vast array of toys, sensory equipment, and activities. Your child will also enjoy learning functional communication and targeted school prep curricula in our simulated pre-school area.

Custom Care Plans From Multi-Disciplinary Teams

No two children are alike — and neither are their treatment plans at Alternatives ABA. The Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), speech and language pathologists (SLPs), and occupational therapists (OTs) at our ABA center work synergistically to craft a plan that’s right for your child.

Focus on the Child’s Strengths

Our clinicians believe that all children should be recognized for their strengths rather than their deficits and work to build individualized treatment plans that target deficits while further developing strengths.

Support for Parents

Our ABA center is committed to supporting families and providing the tools necessary to better support your child with autism. We believe strongly that parents — who know their children best — are essential members of our treatment team.

The ABA Center With Endless Possibilities

For years, our founder Susan Habchy searched for an ABA center where clinicians would see her son’s brilliance, not just his diagnosis. So she partnered with other clinicians who shared her belief that individualized treatment plans should target deficits while nurturing strengths. That mission led to the exceptional family- and child-centered ABA that you can enjoy today at every Alternatives ABA center. Our cross-specialty teams make your journey easier, your child’s therapy more fun, and your community support more impactful.

We provide a number of services at our ABA center in Norwell, MA; Plymouth, MA; Denver, CO; Lakeland, FL; and South Tampa, FL.

Center-Based ABA

Some children receive intensive one-on-one therapy at our ABA center where they’re exposed to peers for fun socialization and enjoy our vast array of toys, sensory equipment, and activities. The simulated pre-school area and targeted school prep curricula in our ABA center is steeped in functional communication and helps prepare kids for preschool and kindergarten.

Our child clients are able to access music therapy, lunchtime social programs, social groups, and an enclosed 2,500-square-foot playground area that is attached to our ABA center.

Speech Therapy

We offer individual speech therapy appointments with one of our speech and language pathologists Monday through Saturday. Our ABA center welcomes all children in need of speech and language services to become clients! Many of our center-based clients receive speech therapy during their scheduled days at our ABA center.

Occupational Therapy

We are pleased to announce that our ABA center now offers occupational therapy as part of our roster of services. Our occupational therapy team specializes in treating children with ASD and can address a range of needs, including feeding and food aversions.

Pre-school & Kindergarten Preparation Program

Your child will join the group that we refer to as “the littles” at our ABA center. The littles, as we call them, are kids aged 2–5 years who prepare together in small groups for a successful transition to a school setting.

All programs at our ABA center are individualized to suit the unique needs of each child and utilize one-on-one intensive ABA in a group setting. Programs circle around classroom-modeled group activities as children work together to build prerequisite skills for a successful transition to a preschool or kindergarten classroom. Their structured sessions will include circle time, snack groups, social skills groups, and a lunch bunch to mimic a school day.

Social/Play/Fitness Groups

At our ABA center, we offer a variety of social and adaptive fitness programs for children and families impacted by autism. Registration for those groups can be found here.

Sibling & Parent Support and Education

We offer a number of individual and group opportunities to support parents and siblings, including sibling groups, supported community outings, educational sessions, etc. We also have a skilled respite program in development at our ABA center.

Functional Living Skills Groups & Programs

Individual and group functional living skills programs at our ABA center make learning fun. These programs generally target older kids and young adults that need supplementary support with essential life skills like self-care, socialization, money management, job preparation, and household skills.
