The following fictional characters represent the typical experiences of children and the staff who support them.
(And that’s just the “A’s”)
Today, Alex’s dad brought him to LittleStar just before 8:30 am. For the past few weeks, we’ve been focusing on communication skills. It’s been going great! Alex knows the day’s schedule before he arrives, and Kristen, his morning Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) greets him at the door.
Every one of Alex’s days at the center are carefully planned and adjusted to get the most out of each one in a way that Alex enjoys.
LittleStar has set up a program for Alex that is preparing to see him in school, full-time, someday soon. It includes help with in-home therapy, life skills and insurance coverage.
Alex is working with his LittleStar team, individually and in groups, to prepare him for success in many settings, home, school, and the community.
When Alex is met at the door, his Registered Behavior Technician (RBT), Kristen, has already done a lot of work to figure out what they’ll be working on today. At LittleStar, the team are all empowered to craft therapy that’s as unique as each child. In fact, Kristen spent their first few minutes together with an activity that’s designed to see how much he retained from yesterday so that she can adjust her plans if she needed to.
Today, it looks like Alex is in a good place and she picks up where they left off yesterday.
After a good morning together that saw Alex focused and participating, Kristen brings him to a group lunch setting. Alex is getting used to being around other children because LittleStar builds in a lot of group, peer and community time into each child’s program. We’re always planning to make sure the timing is right and prepared to adjust when needed, but these interactions are important to families trying to have slightly more typical experiences in places like grocery stores or restaurants.
Things at home are getting easier. Alex’s parents can work with him to make progress with interacting with his siblings, and it’s been a relief to be able to communicate, even just a little bit. They see that he is a happy boy with a bright future. Progress at the center translates to home.
“When the LittleStar team serves as Real Advocates, we demonstrate our high level of engagement, collaboration, and investment in our learners and their families.”
There are so many things that surround an ASD diagnosis. That’s why we give you total support, and why our families feel like they’ve become a part of ours once they’re here.
When we partner with families and our communities.
Like anyone, individuals with autism have good days and challenging days, making progress at their own rates. ABA Therapy creates building blocks that embed progress and builds off previous results, and our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA’s) know how to turn that foundation into a brighter future.
ABA Therapy makes a real difference.
