• 100% of children in our program are effectively communicating their wants and needs within one year, either vocally and/or by PECS , and sometimes ASL (American Sign Language) or other types of language assisted devices.
• 90% are eventually transitioned to either a mainstream or special education school.
• If ABA is started at an early age, a significant number is transitioned to attending regular school with same age peers.
We have helped over 2000 individuals with autism over the past 25 years globally.
Consistent with the findings of Ivar Lovaas, Patricia Krantz, Lynn McClannahan and others, some of our students can attend regular education with same age peers.
“In our first four years, ABC had nine students who came to us before the age of four years and one month who reached this criterion and were placed in regular education programs without supports. They continue to succeed in those placements.
This led us to the position that the effective technology of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) would directly and meaningfully impact the lives of children and their families. With this vision in mind, we founded Applied Behavior Consultants, Inc. (ABC) in 1987.”
