Kara, 6

Kara's ABA Therapy

Age 6, Development Profile: Daily 90-minute session between school and dinner (Mon–Sun, 4:30pm–6:00pm)

Why ABA works for Kara:

Our approach with Kara is tailored to her unique needs, including the incorporation of her AAC (augmentative and alternative communication) device in various programs. We use techniques that are naturalistic to her environment to evoke desired behaviors such as appropriately asking for desired items. We work collaboratively with her school and other therapies to ensure she is getting comprehensive therapy. We adapt our programs and approach as Kara makes progress. Together, we celebrate milestones and victories that Kara accomplishes.

Kara’s Goals

Kara is working on communication skills, language acquisition, demanding and waiting for a preferred item. She is also identifying and labeling functional items in her daily life.

Dylan, 10

Dylan's ABA Therapy

Age 10, Development Profile: Afternoons and evenings, 6 days/week (Mon–Fri, 4:00pm–7:00pm; Sat, 9am–noon)

Why ABA works for Dylan:

We use an individualized approach to teaching language that is customized to Dylan’s specific strengths and specific areas in need of improvement. We are always changing and evolving our approach based on Dylan’s responses to treatment. Every complex skill is broken down into smaller steps and new ones are introduced once the first steps are mastered. We are also introducing new foods to add to Dylan’s limited diet. Dylan tries these new foods with his Behavior Technician, and we celebrate together when he expands his repertoire of preferred foods.

Dylan’s Goals:

Dylan is working on language acquisition, eating new foods, play skills and waiting for a preferred item. He is labeling objects and answering questions.

Kevin, 6

Kevin's ABA Therapy

Age 6, Development Profile: Language-focused weekday intensive (Mon–Fri, 8:00am–2:00pm; Mon/Wed, 3:00pm–5:00pm)

Why ABA works for Kevin:

We use an individualized approach in natural environments to teach language, social skills with an errorless approach. Kevin is learning new tasks to build independence and working on applying the skills across different people he interacts with on a daily basis. It works because we specifically use different motivating techniques and environmental factors to encourage skill development. We encourage Kevin to be part of the process, by talking to him and targeting what he feels is important for himself. This promotes the social significance other behavior plans put in place. All skills are broken down into smaller steps, so that both Kevin and those around him feel success.

Kevin’s goals:

We are working with Kevin on functional communication, reciprocal conversation and problem-solving.

Luke, 7

Luke's ABA Therapy

Age 7, Development Profile: Weekdays, morning through lunch (Mon–Fri, 8:30am–1:30pm)

Why ABA works for Luke:

Luke uses a combination of spoken words, gestures and his iPad to communicate wants and needs and to comment on his environment. As his communication skills evolve, we adapt our instruction and expectations to increase his opportunities to interact with others. Currently, this dynamic language instruction includes teaching Luke skills so he can communicate more complex thoughts. Luke’s repertoire of spoken words is increasing every day. We are also helping Luke increase his tolerance for going to the dentist, playing with others and making mistakes.

Luke’s goals:

Luke is working on communication, eating new foods, cooperative play skills, and coping and tolerance skills.

Working Individually with You and Your Child

We tailor our ABA therapy to each child. Your Proud Moments therapists will work with your child in the context of what other modalities of therapy are in play and, most importantly, in the environment you choose—at home, in school or in clinic.

A rigorous, caring and individualized approach to ABA therapy

Proud Moments brings the experience your child needs. We work with children diagnosed on the autism spectrum of all ages, from infancy through 21, on a wide range of behaviors, from low functioning through very high functioning, and in multiple settings. We are here to help!

Our rigorous, caring and individualized approach is designed to help raise skills and self-confidence, diffusing negative behaviors while improving attention, focus, social skills, memory and communication. It takes time, patience and repetition. But the effects over time can be life changing.

How You and Your Child Begin

Your first step is to get a diagnosis from a medical doctor (MD) or PhD.

Get a diagnosis

ABA therapy requires a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), provided by an MD or PhD. This is necessary to streamline the insurance-coverage process.

Request an intake

The advantage of coming to Proud Moments is that we’ve set up efficient processes and we do our utmost to make sure there’s as little time as possible between requesting services and getting help for your child.

Get a personal assessment

Our care is delivered by a combination of Board-Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and Behavior Technicians (BTs). Care begins with the initial assessment, where our therapists work with your child and family to develop a personalized treatment plan. We know through experience that continuity of care is essential to helping children like yours thrive. We will work with you to create and sustain a treatment plan that makes sure that happens.

Work with a BCBA and BT

Our approach to ABA has been accredited by the Behavioral Health Center of Excellence. In fact, we are one of only a handful of providers in both New York State and in New Jersey to earn this accreditation.

Coordinate care

We are proud to be an essential part of your child’s care team, and we work hard to ensure that we are in synch with what is being done at school and in other therapeutic settings such as physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy.

Ongoing monitoring and support

Our data-driven review process ensures ongoing progress toward goals, with senior clinician supervision. We also offer regular parent training and direct supervision of behavior techniques used in the home—to support your entire family along the journey.
