Special Learning ABA GAP Program Offers Immediate Autism Treatment Services for Families and Individuals upon Diagnosis

November 19, 2013

Special program and certified clinicians in the field of Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis will provide treatment to families by who are currently waiting to access direct services.

CHICAGO, Illinois (PRWEB) November 19, 2013

Special Learning Inc., the leading global provider of mobile technology applications and educational resources for the special needs community, announced today a new program that offers treatment services to the Autism and special needs community. The SL ABA GAP Program is designed to provide immediate access to evidence-based treatment provided by skilled practitioners in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy to families with newly diagnosed children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Led by Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), the program offers convenient and comprehensive services to families from the onset of diagnosis while they are waiting to access direct treatment.

“With rise in prevalence of individuals diagnosed with ASD, more and more families are being wait-listed to receive early intervention,” said Karen Chung, Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “We are thrilled to be able to provide immediate services to these families who so desperately want to start their child on the treatment path.”

The unique program utilizes easily accessible video conferencing tools to allow Special Learning behavior therapists and BCBAs to offer convenient and affordable access to ABA treatment. Families will have the opportunity to consult with a BCBA, as well as receive an initial skills assessment for their child and training to start a home program while they wait for direct treatment placement. The program also provides a cost effective means for parents and caregivers to receive adequate training in the implementation in ABA so they can provide effective treatment to their child.

The SL ABA GAP Program is part of the SL Virtual Consultation Assessment and Treatment Program recently launched by Special Learning. The addition of its newest program solidifies Special Learning’s mission to provide affordable and accessible treatment to all individuals with Autism.

Parents who are interested in enrolling in the SL ABA GAP program, or the SL V-CAT Program, can schedule a complementary 30 minute consultation with a member of the Special Learning clinical team by writing to jroumeliote(at)special-learning(dot)com.
