Services  

All children and families have the right to effective treatment, regardless of their native language, socio-economic status, race, or cultural background. TACT’s mission is to make meaningful differences in the lives of the children and families it serves, and we recognize that although no two families look alike, every family model deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. TACT demonstrates respect by recognizing that the family’s values and priorities for their child must be honored and considered within the development of treatment goals, objectives, and intervention procedures. TACT may offer the following services in collaboration with families:

Focused Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy (ABA)

These therapy sessions are held in home or community settings. Focused ABA consists of 10-14 hours per week of therapy and prioritizes a few important skills. 

Comprehensive ABA

These therapy sessions are held in home or community settings. Comprehensive ABA consists of 15-20 hours per week of therapy and prioritizes access to a broad curriculum.

 

Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention   

For children under age 5, our specially trained clinicians focus on early language development, play skills, social skills, and work with you and your child to establish the greatest possible level of autonomy. Services are offered primarily in the clinic with programming extended to the home to ensure progress. 

Student Intensive Services

We understand that some individuals with autism may display challenging behavior. Our clinic-based service is reserved for individuals for whom this specific type of intervention is required. At the clinic, you will work 1:1 with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) to not only learn how to effectively manage your child's behavior, but to also learn how to establish new important skills that replace challenging behavior. In addition to working 1:1 with a BCBA, a team of paraprofessionals will be assigned to work with your child directly to provide important teaching opportunities. 

Home-Based Services  

We currently offer home-based ABA therapy to over 40 children. Our priority in providing home-based therapy is to teach your child as many skills as possible, such that they can live complete and happy lives. Our home-based curriculum is broad, and ranges from teaching your child how to learn (imitation, visual performance tasks) to language development (requesting and labeling) to social interaction, and many other self-help and life skills. As members of your therapy team, our home-based service providers will work with all team members (occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, school educators) to ensure continuity of care.  

Community Integration 

Many of our home-based students also participate in community integration programs. These programs are aimed at helping your child function independently and successfully in community settings. Throughout the week, many of our students complete various activities, such as grocery shopping, ordering at a restaurant, or attending social events.
