We provide a number of services at our 12,000 square foot campus located just south of Boston in Norwell, MA.
Center Based ABA
Some children receive intensive 1:1 therapy at our center. Many of our families choose to expose their children to peers for socialization and to our vast array of toys and sensory equipment and activities via center-based ABA services. Our simulated pre-school area and targeted school prep curricula helps prepare little people for pre-school and kindergarten. Our child clients are able to access music therapy, lunchtime social programs, social groups, and an enclosed 2,000 sf playground area that is attached to our building.
We offer individual speech therapy appointments with one of our speech and language pathologists Monday through Saturday. We welcome 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 the center.
We are pleased to announce that we now offer Occupational Therapy as part of our roster of services. Our occupational therapy team specializes in treating children living 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”. This group of “littles” is comprised of kiddos aged 2-5 years. They prepare together in small groups for successful transition to a school setting. All programs are individualized to suit the unique needs of each child and utilize 1:1 intensive ABA within the group setting. Programs circle around classroom modeled group activities. Children work together to build necessary pre-requisite 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.
We offer a variety of social and adaptive fitness programs for children and families impacted by autism. Registration for those groups can be found at: www.AlternativesABA.shop
