A group setting to promote socially significant skills
Many children with autism struggle with social interactions, ranging from communication to eye contact to take the perspectives of others. While not every child with autism will experience the same challenges in social situations, most children with autism benefit from additional support with social skills. Through the use of evidence-based practices, Chicago ABA Therapy provides social groups with similar-aged peers to build the foundation for essential skills, such as conversational skills, turn-taking, and listener responding skills.
Children might benefit from one-on-one therapy emphasizing social skills, while others benefit from a group setting with many opportunities for peer interactions. Some children may have a combination of both direct and group therapy to improve social skills. The team at Chicago ABA Therapy will develop an individualized plan for every child to facilitate great gains and progress.
