IN-HOME & CLINICAL ASSESSMENTS
We understand that autism not only affects your child, but it also influences every other member of your family. In addition to that, it is also best that children learn in real life settings as much as possible in order to prepare them for day to day life. Because of this, Elite Spectrum ABA performs all behavioral consultations in the home.
During the consultation, our BCBA works with parents to help identify certain behaviors your child may be engaging in and find ways to help improve that behavior. We also work on creating personal goals that will produce substantial progress not only in the child’s life, but everyone's.
ON-GOING SUPPORT AND MUCH MORE
Life does not stop after therapy and neither do we. Elite Spectrum ABA provides ongoing support services that include:

HERE’S WHAT’S HAPPENING
Minutes away from the Houston Medical Center and NRG Stadium, we offer clinical based ABA services to children of all ages as well as Social Skills Group (afternoons only) and Before/After Care for parents.
AUTISM & LAW ENFORCEMENT
For people with autism, learning to interact with first responders is critical. On the other hand, it is just as essential for first responders to understand autism and be prepared to respond effectively and safely to situations that arise involving individuals on the spectrum.
To help better serve our community in Houston, we offer trainings/seminars to local law enforcement agencies and other organizations who are seeking to become more familiar with what autism is and what to do when they encounter someone in the community who is on the spectrum.
If you'd like to schedule a training for your local department or organization, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT IS VERBAL BEHAVIOR?
Verbal Behavior (VB) is a method of teaching language that focuses on the idea that a meaning of a word is found in their functions. VB also capitalizes on the child’s own motivation, teaching the child to communicate for what he desires. This ability to mand may reduce problematic behavior that functioned as a means for obtaining the desired item.
Verbal Behavior is great to combine with other methods such as Discrete Trial Training (DTT) or Natural Environment Training (NET) as it may contribute to acquiring a more complete language repertoire (Sundberg & Michael, 2001).
Children need the functional skills across the verbal operants to increase verbal behavior, particularly in environments with their peers (Sundberg & Michael, 2001). A child without strong intraverbal skills may not interact appropriately in response to their peers’ verbal behavior, which may weaken further interactions.
