Our Process

At PlayThinks, we specialize in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services tailored to support individuals diagnosed with autism. Our dedicated team works with you to personalize your program to suit the specific needs and strengths of your child.

With PlayThinks ABA services, families can expect:

  1. Individualized Plans: We create custom behavior intervention plans designed to enhance social skills, communication, and daily living activities, fostering independence and growth.

  2. Play-Based Learning: Through fun and engaging activities, we use play as a powerful tool for teaching new skills and reinforcing positive behaviors.

  3. Skilled Therapists: Our team consists of highly trained and compassionate therapists who provide one-on-one support, ensuring each child receives the attention they deserve.

  4. Family Involvement: We believe in collaboration, working closely with families to provide guidance, training, and resources for continued progress beyond therapy sessions.

  5. Progress Tracking: PlayThinks uses data-driven methods to monitor progress, allowing us to make informed adjustments to programs and celebrate milestones together.

At PlayThinks, we are committed to creating a nurturing environment where children with autism can thrive, learn, and reach their full potential through the power of play.
