Where We Work
We have two facilities in the Chicago area where you will receive the same high quality of care and commitment to personalized services. We have custom-designed rooms dedicated to specific tasks and purposes. Our Crestwood location is our largest facility and our main operating hub.
How We Design Our Clinics
We design our clinics to be an ideal environment for assessment, skill acquisition, and behavior reduction. In creating this contrived environment, we limit extraneous outside variables, and pinpoint conditions that produce and perpetuate behavior. These controlled environments also allow us to isolate specific variables that maintain behavior and keep our sessions focused on the goals and objectives specific to the treatment plan.
Sessions take place in our therapy rooms, which are equipped with two-way mirrors. Parents can observe sessions between the clinical technician and their child, while maintaining a clinical distance and limiting the possibility of interactions. This observation process functions in three ways: 1) it provides the parent with a unique insight into their child’s behavior when interacting with others, 2) it enables BCBA’s to narrate and explain the therapy process as it takes place, and 3) it allows for parents to complete tasks and goals while receiving direct feedback within the clinical setting.
Our kitchen offers a space for our clients to practice the self-directed skills necessary to develop independent behaviors in their natural environments. Using kitchen equipment such as sinks, microwave ovens, hotplates, and toaster ovens, we teach our clients how to use common household appliances and to create habits for self-directed skills.
Assessment Intake Room
We conduct all assessments at our clinic. In this controlled environment, we are able to gauge your child’s current skillsets and determine a treatment plan that will most effectively lead to independence.
In the literacy center, our programming teaches skills such as maintaining focus and attention, staying seated, and taking turns. These sessions are conducted 1:1 within a group setting. In this environment, our aim is to cultivate and hone those skills that will enable our clients to thrive in community settings, such as classrooms and libraries.
This room is designed with independent living in mind. It is expected that all individuals participating in this area develop skills under stimulus control of the environment which include, making the bed, waking up simulation, leisure activities, cleaning, and more.
Our playground features two separate areas for our clients to interact with their peers and practice their motor skills while receiving 1:1 treatment services. During these sessions, clients learn routines pertaining to playground etiquette, transitioning to and from activities and equipment, turn-taking, and social interactions with peers.
Our spring and summer garden offers an opportunity for clients of all ages to practice horticulture and enjoy the outdoors while working on both gross and fine motor skills.
Services Offered At Our Clinics
ABA In Your Home
In-home sessions are a unique opportunity to work with our clients in their everyday environment.
ABA in your home is especially useful when working with children who are exhibiting challenging behaviors. In contrast to the controlled clinic environment, in-home sessions give us unique insight into how everyday elements of the home and family interactions influence behavior. We begin by observing our clients as they interact with family members and the home space and then move on to assessing the functions (conditions and causes) for any challenging behaviors we might see. With the full participation of the family, we help our clients integrate program goals and objectives into your family’s day to day routine.
