Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) is an errorless learning approach that is paired with positive reinforcement. It is specifically designed for children who have difficulties learning in a typical manner. At CEED we are firmly committed to the use of ABA as a gentle intervention.
This method of teaching utilizes methods such as discrete trials and verbal behavior. Discrete trials work well when repetition and simple language are necessary. Verbal behavior works well with children who understand and have acquired functional language.
ABA at CEED is provided on an individualized basis, focusing on basic language, cognitive, social, and attention skills. We are committed to assisting children in generalizing the skills they learn in ABA for use in the rest of their world.
Our theory at CEED is to let our children and families guide us in their needs. Each child is an individual with their own needs and learns in a slightly different way. We, at CEED, respect each child and their unique learning style. We are dedicated to a strictly non-aversive approach.
