Essential Speech and ABA Therapy
Midlothian, Virginia

Essential Speech and ABA Therapy adopta un enfoque de EQUIPO para la terapia para niños de 18 meses a 6 años de edad en el espectro del autismo.

Cada niño inscrito en el programa de primera infancia de Essential Speech and ABA Therapy tiene un analista de conducta certificado (BCBA), un patólogo del habla y el lenguaje (SLP) y un terapeuta ocupacional (OTR) que evalúan y desarrollan planes de tratamiento individualizados para cada una de sus necesidades. ¡Los terapeutas de su hijo se reúnen, colaboran y tratan como un equipo todos los días!

Cada una de nuestras ubicaciones es de propiedad y operación local e independiente, lo que garantiza que el cuidado de su hijo sea nuestra primera y única prioridad. Desde educar a nuestros padres hasta la colaboración e implementación de planes de tratamiento, la excelencia en la atención está en el centro de todo lo que hacemos.

Additional Perks of ABA Therapy

  • We offer a unique setting via Natural Environment Teaching (also called NET). NET encourages learning through play: by using familiar environments, toys, and activities, children can build upon the skills they learn in our facilities.

  • By maximizing NET opportunities, our learners are immersed in different settings to encourage the use of newly learned skills in natural environments (such as their school or the local community).

  • We're big on teamwork and collaborate with parents, caregivers, educators, and other industry professionals to individualize lessons and help kids reach their full potential.

  • We support your child in learning and retaining new skills.

  • We monitor their progress and customize our strategies to help them reach their full potential and achieve their desired goals.

  • We take a well-rounded approach to child development and cater to each child's specific needs. Our program combines ABA therapy, Speech Therapy, OT, and early intervention services. Our team combines ABA Therapy, Speech Therapy, and Occupational Therapy to ensure that your child thrives!

  • At Essential Speech and ABA Therapy, we use a strategy called Positive Reinforcement. In Positive Reinforcement, a therapist identifies a goal behavior. When a child successfully repeats the goal behavior, they are rewarded. Our positive rewards encourage the child to continue using their newly acquired skills. Over time, this leads to meaningful behavioral change.

With speech therapy in Midlothian, we inspire personal growth and development in your child. There are many benefits to speech therapy. Here are a few ways this method can help your child:

  • We meet your child where they are, verbal or non-verbal, to focus on expressing their needs. By using phrases like "I want" or "I need," and tools like sign language or picture boards, our professionals help children communicate effectively.

  • Therapists empower children to decode verbal and nonverbal cues, fostering independent communication skills.

  • Therapy allows children to hone their social skills, grasp casual conversations, and foster new friendships.

  • Speech therapy improves clear speech and sentence structure. It also helps with understanding colors, sizes, and prepositions.

Our Occupational Therapy Program in Midlothian

Following your child's first assessment, our occupational therapists identify crucial areas for enhancement, such as independent dressing, eating, grooming, and fine motor skills. Our staff frequently meets families and program personnel to readjust goals and modify plans as needed. Our occupational therapists help your child master the following skills:

  • Self-care skills (such as dressing, eating a meal, and managing personal hygiene) 

  • Productivity skills (i.e., emotional regulation, participation, handwriting, and organization)

  • Leisure skills (participating in hobbies, developing motor skills for PE/sports, and maintaining friendships)
