The Eastern Michigan University Autism Collaborative Center (ACC) is pleased to offer a center-based program that provides Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy for children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder for ages 2-8 years old. The goal of this therapy is to increase functional language and appropriate social skills while decreasing undesired behaviors in a teaching environment to improve the quality of life for our clients. The ABA curriculum is a balanced approach for teaching, utilizing Discrete Table Teaching (DTT) and Natural Environment Teaching (NET). The curriculum generally covers developing language, social, self-help, motor, and play skills.
The ACC is unique and innovative; we employ a multi-disciplinary approach for all treatment planning. The ABA program utilizes well trained behavior technicians that are directly supervised by an experienced Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
