Discovery Behavior Solutions happily provides the following services to children and adults in counties in southwest Washington:

ABA Therapy

In the State of Washington, ABA Therapy is provided to children and adults ages 2-20* diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. ABA Therapy helps to teach skill deficits and decrease behavior excesses. For example, if your loved one is struggling to communicate wants and needs, finds difficulty in self-help tasks such as dressing, toileting, and grooming, lacks social skills and downtime play activities, ABA Therapy can help to teach all of these skills. Additionally, if an individual engages in challenging behaviors such as severe tantrum, aggression, property destruction, elopement, self-injurious and self-stimulatory behaviors that prevent them from accessing a typical environment and hinder their quality of life, the staff with Discovery Behavior Solutions can help with that as well! Developed from evidence-based practices from the field of Applied Behavior Analysis, ABA therapy utilizes a variety of teaching strategies such as positive reinforcement, Discrete Trial Training (DTT), Natural Environmental Training (NET), shaping and chaining, Pivotal Response Training, and other methods to help make the skills being taught appropriate for the learner and meaningful for their environment and daily life. Due to the extensive research the field of ABA has produced, it is recommended that individuals receive between 10-40 hours per week of the service. At Discovery Behavior Solutions, we pride ourselves in providing ABA Therapy to our clients, as our staff receive extensive training and are well supported, and our parents are recognized as essential to programming and provided with education and consultation as well. We are passionate about this field, because we know how valuable it is to the individuals receiving the service. Contact us today for additional information on our ABA Therapy service.
