A personalized developmental assessment gives you ideas for age-appropriate activities that help to scaffold your child's learning. Parents are a child's first teacher, and it is important to know how your child learns so he or she can reach his or her fullest potential. We all want the best for our children, and CDAT can help you to provide that for them.
We offer developmental, educational, and behavioral diagnostics and therapies for children birth through school age.
What the Surgeon General says about Applied Behavior Analysis…
The Surgeon General – “Intensive, sustained special education programs and behavior therapy early in life can increase the ability of the child with autism to acquire language and ability to learn.” “Thirty years of research demonstrated the efficacy of applied behavioral methods in reducing inappropriate behavior and in increasing communication, learning, and appropriate social behavior.” On identifying the most scientifically supported treatments for Autism, Pediatrics, (the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics), says, “The most efficacious psychosocial treatment for autism is applied behavior analysis…”(Lilienfeld, 2005).
Therapists at CDAT specialize in ABA and Verbal Behavior.
