Applied Behavior Analysis
A Special Angel’s Touch provides individualized behavioral therapy based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).Our trained Behavior Analysts (BCBAs, BCaBA’s, Licensed Counselors and Social Workers) offer individualized Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services for children, teenagers and adults with diagnoses that include the Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Learning Disorders, and other conditions that affect development and behavioral functioning. Treatment can be provided in the home, school and community settings. The goals of intervention are not only to improve behavior, but also to enhance the overall quality of life for children and families.
APPLIED BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS (ABA)
ABA is considered an “evidence-based” practice meaning that there is enough research evidence showing that is it an effective and useful treatment for children with autism spectrum disorders. In addition, it has been endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, National Academies of Science, and the Surgeon General as the best practice for individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities.
Our goal is to make sure that every child is properly assessed and evaluated according to their special needs and skills. Functional assessment allows us to fully understand the child’s behavior and as a result, we will be able to create a plan to support their needs or enhance skills that to improve their quality of life. We always collaborate with the parents or the child’s primary caregiver for continuous interventions even at home. Moreover, we encourage the parents and caregivers to get involved and report any behaviors that the child possessed at home or whenever they are outside.
BEHAVIOR SUPPORT CONSULTATION/PARENT TRAINING
Consultation time will be spent with parent(s) or caregivers to discuss ongoing problem behaviors and conduct parent trainings. Consultations with parents may or may not have the child present for the session, depending on the child’s immediate needs. Caregivers will be evaluated and trained by both the Analyst and the Behavior Assistant.
All the above services can be applied to school districts, classrooms, and educators’ needs to assist children with developmental disabilities in the school environment. Assistance may also be provided through consultations in Behavior Intervention Plan writing, etc

Same options of International Therapy is for the families to travel to the location of the agency in Florida. This allows the agency to work with the client while the family also has time to vacation or do business in the wonderful places Florida has to offer. While the family is also trained to continue after their departure.
