Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy
Our team specializes in helping individuals with disabilities learn by applying the science of applied behavior analysis. A behavior skills training approach is empirically based and has several decades of research supporting its effectiveness in teaching and training in a variety of areas, and notably with individuals with disabilities.
Great Heights believes that all learners deserve to develop in a setting where their unique talents and abilities are celebrated and where the latest educational technologies are used to facilitate accuracy and fluency in key areas. Targeted curriculum, expert instruction, and meaningful opportunities to practice lead to high student success. We are dedicated to individualized instruction for all students to develop the skills they need to be successful learners, and to have meaningful academic and social engagement. Most importantly, we implore positive approaches to nurture children and their love for learning, exploring, and connecting.
Research shows children who have carry-over from the clinic setting into the home make faster progress, attain, and maintain more skills. That’s why at Great Heights we have a Caregiver Training. It’s our hope in coming together in a partnership, that families and their child will meet their maximum potential.
Professional Development Training
Great Heights has tremendous respect and appreciation for school administrators and teachers, and the tremendous task they undertake each day in educating and supporting students and families. Great Heights works with administrators to identify what types of training and support the school desires to strengthen their team and their impact on at-risk students. Great Heights can also provide more formalized assessments for school culture and impact on serving at-risk students, teacher’s identified desires for training/supports, as well as skill assessments for professional development. Common needs for teaching at-risk students are empowering teachers to take care of themselves so that they can be their most effective, positive approaches to classroom management, how to individualize instruction when teaching a group, and how to increase learner independence in the classroom.
