Service Highlights

Special Instruction

The Special Instructor designs the learning environments and activities that help to promote the acquisition of skills by your infant or toddler, including skills for language, communication, cognitive processes and social engagement.

ABA Individual and Group

Individualized ABA services offered by KDS will include intensive one-to-one therapeutic interventions and support. On-to-one therapeutic interventions are designed to increase skill development and coping strategies within the individual’s natural environment. When appropriate, a small group format will be utilized to address the child, youth, or young adult's individual treatment needs with the goal of stabilizing, maintaining and/or maximizing functioning within the home, school or community setting.

Parent Training

One-to-one parent/guardian(s) training will consist of the basic principles and techniques of applied behavioral analysis (ABA). Each uniquely designed intervention will be specific to the individual needs of the child to increase independence, daily living skills, and functional communication. As an integral part of ABA therapy, certified employees of KDS including the BCBA and BHT-ABA will be available to coach families through their concerns with behavior, consistency, and compliance with following directions. Therapeutic interventions will provide appropriate consequences for skill building and help parents to become a contributing part of the child's therapy team.

A nutritionist/dietician will monitor appropriate plans to address the nutritional needs of your child and make referrals to appropriate community resources to carry out nutrition goals.
