FAQ

Autism is characterized by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication. Individuals diagnosed with Autism engage in repetitive behaviours and often have limited interests. No two individuals with Autism are the same as for some it may impact their life more than others.  Due to the severity of the disorder, if left untreated children diagnosed with Autism may not learn to speak, build social interaction skills and develop other essential skills.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is development disorder in children which show signs of inattention and hyperactive impulsive behaviours. Verbal impulsivity, speaking out, fidgeting. Cognitive impulsiveness engage in behaviours without thinking of the consequences, cannot wait for things, climbing things, touching things.

ABA is a well-developed scientific discipline that focuses on analyzing, designing, implementing, and evaluating the environment so that change in behaviour is observed.  ABA utilizes assessment procedures to determine underlying causes of behaviour and allows practitioners to change the environment so that behaviour can change.  Building new skills and decreasing problem behaviours are the primary focus.

Verbal behaviour uses the science of Applied Behaviour Analysis to teach language.  Focusing on Mands (requests), Tacts (labels), Receptive skills (following instructions), Motor Imitation, Vocal Imitation and Intraverbals (conversational skills).  Children are taught the function and use of language rather than just words. Verbal behaviour is not necessarily spoken language but can take other forms such as sign language, PECS or communicative devices.
