Family Compass

Autism Early Intervention Services: ABA and Floortime

UPDATED: September 10, 2018

Family Compass is committed to a comprehensive approach to evaluation and intervention.

Assessment and Diagnosis: In addition to utilizing the “gold standard” of diagnostic evaluation tools (ADOS-2, ADI-R), we use interactive sessions to deepen our evaluation process. After a comprehensive assessment, we provide parents with a roadmap for intervention and practical therapy recommendations to support their child’s developmental progress.
Our Early Intervention Program is unique in combining methods from two leading interventions to support children’s early development: Developmental Interactive Therapy (DIR/Floortime) and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

Developmental Interactive Therapy (DIR/Floortime): The Floortime approach to intervention is a comprehensive foundation model that utilizes affect-based interactions and experiences tailored to the individual needs of the child and parents to promote progress up the developmental ladder. Through weekly in-office sessions, we train parents in specific techniques targeted to increase their child’s engagement, communication, and emotional regulation skills.

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA): We work with children and their families utilizing behavioral principles to strengthen identified developmental skills across multiple domains.
