In this blog she helps parents determine if their child needs an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), which starts with getting an evaluation. If your child already has an IEP, it may be time to reassess their goals and determine if they are still relevant after this much time away from school, due to the pandemic.

What is The Difference Between Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder?

What is ABA Therapy?
ABA stands for “Applied Behavior Analysis”. It’s therapy that’s based on the science of learning and behavior.

The goal with ABA therapy, is to increase the behaviors that are helpful and decrease the behaviors that are harmful or affect learning.
