How does In-Clinic ABA Therapy work?
At the initial phase of in-clinic ABA therapy, the therapist focuses on rapport building and allows the learner to explore the clinic environment. At BPI, we take pride in our children wanting to participate and engage in the therapy. After the child feels comfortable in the environment (including the therapist) and shows interest in some activities or toys, we will systematically teach the child how to communicate his or her needs/wants, respond to instructions/questions, and participate in group activities with peers.At BPI, our primary In-Clinic ABA therapy is delivered via our Apple Academy program.
