Welcome to Autism Strategies and Programs

ASAP provides behavioral and educational services to children with autism in home and school settings. Utilizing a variety of teaching strategies, including applied behavior analysis (ABA), verbal behavior, direct and incidental teaching, a behavioral support team will individualize programs based on a child’s needs.

We offer our services to families, early intervention programs, and school systems. It is our belief that all individuals have the right to services that enhance opportunities and learn in a least restrictive environment. ASAP believes in using the current best clinical practices and that all individuals deserve effective services. Currently, we offer our services in Fairfield, New Haven, and Southern Litchfield Counties. For more information, please feel free to contact us.



What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?


Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a science based on work by B.F. Skinner. The term applied signifies that the intervention is socially significant to the individual and their community. The behaviors being addressed must be defined, observable, and measurable. Behavior is anything that is being changed or monitored. Analytic means that data is being taken consistantly and on a regular basis to see progress over time and determine whether or not the intervention being implemented is effectively changing behavior.

 

Below are interventions based on the science of Applied Behavior Analysis: 

 

Discrete Trial Training (DTT) 

Positive Behavior Supports (PBS)

Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) 

Incidental Teaching 

Verbal Behavior (VB)


 
What is Autism?


Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) varies in how it affects people. Impairments in social interactions and communication, with restrictive and/or repetitive behaviors are three areas that must be present to diagnose ASDs. These impairments restrict the individual’s ability to function in play, developing age appropriate levels of peer relationships, and functional social communication. ASDs encompass Classic Autism, Asperger’s Disorder, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder, PDD-NOS, and Rett’s Syndrome.
