At Early Autism Services, we take pride in being one of the first to provide ABA therapy in Chicago. We provide both in-home and center-based ABA therapy services throughout the greater Chicago area. Our team of BCBAs, Lead Therapists and Behavior Technicians are a group of highly-trained, caring individuals, whose primary concern is your child’s success. We work with children in areas such as: Behavior Planning; Fine and Gross Motor Skills; Language and Communication; Play Skills; Pre-Academic Skills; Self-Help, Social Skills; and more.
Our ABA Therapy Services in Chicago
Our center-based ABA therapy services offer a fun and inviting environment for your child to learn, explore, and grow! While our programs are data driven and goal oriented, we use a play-based learning model. All our center-based programs include time for table time learning, interactive peer play, and free play.
ABA therapy that takes place in a natural setting such as a home or day care is typically preferred as it allows the team to work with your child where their behaviors and skill deficits are occurring. This typically results in your child better learning the skills and generalizing skills outside of therapy sessions as well.
Telehealth refers to therapy that takes place through an electronic device. These virtual services offer many families quality therapy, and a high level of support from a remote location. All of our telehealth options include the same personalized services we provide through our in-home programs.
Social Skills Groups
EAS hosts weekly social skills groups for children with autism between the ages of 6-13. This offers kids an opportunity to practice social skills with peers with the guidance of our trained clinicians. Groups practice skills like making conversation, cooperation and other common social situations.
In-Home ABA Therapy
Many of our Chicago families have programs which use a home-based therapy model. With in-home therapy programs, our clinicians work 1:1 with your child, in the comfort and privacy of your own home. This approach allows your child to build functional skills that can be tailored to their daily routines within their own home.
