ABA Behavioral Group provides Applied Behavior Analysis therapy and parent training in the homes and communities of our clients who have been diagnosed with Autism or other related developmental disabilities. Using research based assessments and methodologies, we deliver evidence based, intensive or focused client centered interventions in an ethically responsible setting. Our goal is to provide interventions based on the principles of ABA to help children learn how to independently communicate, play, and socially engage in their community as well as reduce maladaptive behaviors.
ABA Behavioral Group was opened in 2017 by Michelle Windsor, BCBA/LBA. Michelle's background includes experience in direct ABA instruction, generalization and naturalization of skills, community involvement, school inclusion and evaluations. She is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA,) and a Licensed Behavior Analyst in Virginia. Her focus to help children grow and she and her staff are dedicated to helping children with autism and other special needs receive the highest quality ABA services available through our comprehensive and individualized ABA treatment programs.
We create a treatment program that is individualized to your child and tailored to the needs of your family.
Our Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will get to know you and your child in order to set initial treatment goals (e.g., development of skills such as communication skills, play skills, toilet training, feeding aversion, or a reduction in behavior problems) and develop an individualized treatment plan.
After first building a relationship with your child, a trained Behavior Technician will use proven teaching strategies (combining "work" and "fun") to help your child build new skills. We work on skills until they can be used very naturally in your child’s daily life. During each session, therapists will collect data on your child's progress.
We teach caregivers the ABA strategies we are using with your child so that you too can use them to support your child’s development.
The data and information collected during therapy sessions is used by your child’s BCBA to continually assess your child’s progress and ensure appropriate program delivery.
According to the CDC, even though ASD can be diagnosed as early as 18 months, most children are not diagnosed until after age 4. (1)
For nearly a decade, Michelle Windsor, BCBA/LBA, has delivered Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy for early childhood intervention.
At ABABG, we are able to tailor our programs to a child’s unique needs while providing the care our clients deserve and expect.
