Silver Spring, Maryland

At Little Leaves, our center-based ABA program is for young children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and is run in a preschool-like setting. It is designed for children up to age 6 who have been recommended for intensive ABA services. Each client works one-on-one with a trained behavior technician on individualized goals with a focus on social communication, social interactions, and school readiness skills. During the day, children have the opportunity to participate in individual therapy time, small group activities with peers, and activities of daily living. While many clients are our centers for the full day, an individualized schedule is developed for each child based on his/her therapeutic needs.
