Considered the most evidence-based treatment for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) is a type of therapy that can improve social, communication and learning skills with a strong emphasis on positive reinforcement.
The Hemam Learning Difficulties Centre carefully designs individual treatments and educational plans comprised of behaviour reduction and skill acquisition programs using Discrete Trial Training (DTT), Natural Environment Teaching (NET), Small Group Instructions/Activities, Occupational Therapy, Speech & Language Therapy (SLT).
Behavior Intervention Plans (BIP) are developed for students exhibiting challenging behaviors including but not limited to: tantrums, aggression, self-injury, property destruction, task-refusal, and food-refusal.
Speech & Language Therapy is an integral part of our treatment. As speech becomes a major way of expressing oneself, it becomes a necessity for the child to master expressing themselves through their speech. Speech and language are needed in our society to achieve individual aims in life.
Our occupational therapists use a holistic approach in planning programmes. They take into account the physical, social, emotional, sensory and cognitive abilities and needs of students.
