ABA SERVICES

The S.P.A.R.K.S. Group provides high-quality, research-based Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) treatment services to children ages birth through 21.

The S.P.A.R.K.S. Group provides assessment and specific treatment to address the following areas:

  • Problem behaviors (e.g., hitting, kicking, spitting, biting, etc.)
  • Communication skills
  • Social skills
  • Self-stimulatory behavior (“stimming”)
  • Play skills
  • Functional life skills
  • Toileting accidents
  • Cognitive skills

At The S.P.A.R.K.S. Group, ABA Services are provided to each child on an individualized basis, through a continuum of therapy models. Our ABA services team meets regularly with a child’s parents, caregivers, and other service providers to share progress and treatment strategies.  Additionally we provide educational consultative support to review and revise a child’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP), as needed.

The S.P.A.R.K.S. Group provides ABA Services through a tiered service delivery model (as opposed to stand-alone services) that allows each child access to the most effective and appropriate level of care. At the start of services, each child is assigned to a clinical team that is led by a Program Consultant and includes at least one ABA Therapist to deliver direct treatment on a routine basis.  All of our Program Consultants are Certified Behavioral Analysts having obtained their BCBA-D, BCBA or BCaBA Certification. The S.P.A.R.K.S. Group understands that a child’s success in treatment is often enhanced by the participation of his or her caregivers, and we require the direct involvement of each family member to the greatest extent possible. On a routine basis, our team provides direct parent training and coordination of care between other medical services such as speech therapy, occupational therapy and/or physical therapy.

The S.P.A.R.K.S. Group aims to provide the best quality services to our clients. We are happy to provide more information and answer any specific questions you may have about our ABA Services, and look forward to serving your family!
