Applied Behavioral Analysis Treatment
When using applied behavioral analysis to treat people with autism it is important to apply evidence based methods accurately for each of the families needs. Therefore, every family is accessed for their specific needs prior to treatment. We start by doing a phone screening to discuss if our ABA Program is a good fit for your family. If we decide we are a good fit for your families needs we do an intake meeting to discuss CARE policy and procedures. We then build rapport with our clients while taking baseline data to assess prerequisite skills for future programs and excessive behavior for behavior reduction plans. After this process a treatment plan is created based on assessments, data, and other important information specific to your child. Treatments may include but are not limited to the following: Discrete Trial Training, PECS, Functional Communication Training, Pivotal Response Training, and Incidental Teaching.
PEERS Social Skills Group
C.A.R.E. is a UCLA PEERS Certified Provider
We really push our clients to be independent and live productive fulfilling lives. That is why The Center for Autism Rehabilitation & Evaluation is one of the only mental health agencies in the State of Washington that is certified to implement the UCLA PEERS Social Skills Program. This 14 week program is a evidenced-based, caregiver-assisted social skills intervention for Teenagers with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The PEERS Program has a primary purpose to teach people with ASD how to make friends, maintain friends, handle challenging social situations, effectively communicate with others, and use social media. The program is divided into two groups: parents and teens. Parents are trained on how to promote social skills, have time for Q & A regarding their teens weekly progress, and are given weekly handouts assignments. The teens role play, are given an activity, and are also given social homework assignment goals for the following week. This program can also train CARE staff how to give proper social skills training to people with ASD. Visit www.semel.ucla.edu/peers to learn more about the PEERS program.
