“Does my child need Speech or ABA?” Parents are commonly faced by this dilemma, and weighing in which will benefit their children most often leaving them uncertain. What is the best intervention to support the educational needs for your child?
Most learners need both of these disciplines mutually focusing on understanding and improving every individual’s language and social behavior skills.
The Indigo Program provides intervention to teach functional language and social-communication skills seen through requesting, labeling, and conversing. It offers a unique blend of SLP and ABA teaching principles. Both fields support the importance of verbal behavior, prompting, and reinforcement techniques during teaching. Generalization of skills learned are also taken into consideration to ensure that learned responses are used broadly across settings, situations, and people. This program double benefits your child as both the ABA therapist and Speech therapist will share inputs into the learner’s target goals. Reducing challenging behaviors that arise from difficulties from communication are carefully considered through a functional analysis approach.
