Summer 2024
Intensive ABA


Our Summer Intensive Teaching program is an opportunity for students to benefit from focused teaching for a short block of time. During this 4 or 8 week program, educators work on a focused set of learning goals and aim to help students achieve as much growth as possible in the areas that are signficant to their development.

This program is ideal for school-aged students who are looking for a "boost" over the summer months. It is also a great option for students of all ages who are new to ABA and want to try out this type of program before making a longer-term commitment.

In these sessions, 1 educator and 1 student work together in a learning environment that was designed to minimize distractions and allow the student to focus on learning and skill development. Learning goals are achieved through repetition, frequent practice, skill scaffolding and other evidence-based ABA strategies.

During the initial days of the Summer Program, our team completes a brief but comprehensive assessment of your child's skills. These assessments give us the opportunity to learn more about each student. They give us a sense of how they learn, what they like, what they're good at, and what challenges them.

From the results of the assessment, a small list of individualized goals will be developed. These goals will be the focus of intensive teaching time and will evolve and change as needed throughout the program. 

Our Aspire Beginnings program is a great option for students age 2-4 this summer!
