What is Goal Based ABA therapy?

Goal Based ABA therapy focuses on the unique, specific goals of your child that can be addressed in 1 - 8 hours per week. Depending on your goal(s), service can be delivered in multiple ways: 1:1, groups, and workshops, with an emphasis on parent/caregiver training/consultation.

Who is eligible?

Goal based ABA therapy is available for children/youth, age birth to 18 years, with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis. A screening process will be applied to confirm eligibility for this program, including registration with the Ontario Autism Program (OAP). The reduction of challenging behaviours, including aggression to self or others, will not be a specific goal area addressed within this program.

What can I expect?

Some common goals in this program include (but are not limited to):

  • Attending appointments
  • Social interactions
  • Toileting
  • Personal hygiene
  • School and job readiness
  • Language
  • Communication
  • Independent living skills, such as dressing or eating with a utensil

  • If you don’t see your specific goal, please ask us.

  • Goal Based is a commitment of 1 - 8 hours per week

How it Works?

When a space is available, a clinician will call you to arrange an appointment. Your child/you will receive an individualized assessment. Both your assessment and treatment will be supervised by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA).

There will be emphasis on parent involvement and training, for parents to feel confident in continuing with skill building when treatment is done and to feel comfortable sharing their skills with people in a variety of environments.​

Treatment will be provided at a location most suitable for your selected goals, including Lansdowne Children's Centre (at 39 Mt. Pleasant St., Brantford), your home or in the community. Additional costs for mileage and travel time apply for home or community locations.
