ABA Group Programs

  

ABA Sensory Class- Targeting 4 out of the 5 senses in each lesson plan (i.e. sight, touch, smell, and sound), plus the other 2 senses (vestibular and proprioceptive). New sensory activities are introduced in each lesson using the principles of ABA. Social interaction, appropriate responding to social situations, and learning to identify with peers, as well as fine motor development are some of the goals for this social group. There are specific goals outlined for each class and data is collected during this time. These classes are overseen by the lead therapist and clinical supervisor. 

  

ABA Music Class- This ABA class is offered in partnership with “The Music 4 Life Music Therapy Program” and is a group that uses children’s attraction to rhythm and music to help them practice communication and social skills development. In this group, participants engage their bodies and their minds by moving, playing instruments, listening, and making up new songs. We use picture symbols and visual aides to allow children to make choices and to develop both verbal and non-verbal communication skills. Through their participation in music therapy activities, the group will have fun while working towards their goals. My Place Learning Centre ITs are in the music class and continue to work on the children’s ABA goals and collect data. These classes are overseen by the lead therapist and clinical supervisor. 



  

ABA Make-and-Take Class- This ABA class focuses on making a new craft that the children can take home. New make-and-take activities are introduced in each lesson using the principles of ABA. Social interaction, appropriate responding to social situations, and learning to identify with peers, as well as fine motor development are some of the goals for this social group. There are specific goals outlined for each class and data is collected during this time. These classes are overseen by the lead therapist and clinical supervisor. 

  

ABA Picky Eaters Class- This ABA class provides a safe environment where children can explore new foods, we use gradual exposure methods involving the senses (i.e. touch, smell, taste, sight).  Social interaction, appropriate responding to social situations, and learning to identify with peers, as well as tolerating new/non-preferred foods are some of the goals for this social group. There are specific goals outlined for each class and data is collected during this time. These classes are overseen by the lead therapist and clinical supervisor. 

  

ABA Songs-and-Stories- This ABA class mimics a circle-time classroom setting, where the ITs will read books and sing songs that engage the children and increase tolerance for sitting in a group for extended periods of time. Social interaction, appropriate responding to social situations, and learning to identify with peers are some of the goals for this social group. There are specific goals outlined for each class and data is collected during this time. These classes are overseen by the lead therapist and clinical supervisor.
