ABA Horizons

Coronavirus Support

We are able to continue support to the family via telehealth services for more details please visit www.abahorizons.co.uk

General Details

ABA Horizons believes every child can learn. Especially when given the right tools and support. Despite if they learn differently from you and I. We strive to help young people on the spectrum to maximise their potential.

Based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis, we provide high quality, individualised services. We increase effective learning by reducing barriers that prevents learning. We teach functionally equivalent skills to replace behaviours that may challenge.

Session Information
Telehealth Services will allow for families to have access to ABA services through the use of technology. It is cost-effective for families with a child who cannot meet in traditional standards of face-to-face examinations and consultations. It can improve the child's health through real-time communication between the therapist and the child in a remote environment. ABA Horizons makes use of electronic communication using audio and video equipment to engage with the child. This allows for flexibility and for the family and child to receive high quality services.
Direct Services Our direct services consist of one-to-one therapy provided to your child for a specified number of hours per week in the home, school or community setting. The exact number of hours will be based on assessment results, your own individual circumstances and what we think will work best for you. Direct services will be implemented by an RBT® (Registered Behaviour Technician) or RBT® in training. Click the link below for more information on RBT’s https://www.bacb.com/rbt/ We understand that services can be expensive and time consuming, therefore we want our services to be accessible and work for your budget. If you are interested in direct ABA services, there are three possible RBT® options available to you: ABA Horizons provides a tutor with RBT® certification. You provide a tutor that already has RBT® certification or an individual that we can train to RBT® standard. You work directly with your child and ABA Horizons will train you to RBT® standard. Supervision RBT®s practice under the close and on-going supervision of a BCBA®. In addition to the direct ABA services and regardless of which scenario above works for you, we will provide the supervision and training services accordingly. Here we can also provide various options to fit within your budget and schedule: Training and supervision can be provided in-person by the BCBA. While in-person training and supervision is most beneficial, we can also provide training and supervision via telemedicine (video technology such as Zoom). Telemedicine is another way we can help reduce the cost of ABA services to make it more accessible to you. A combination of in-person and telemedicine training and supervision.
In addition to one-to-one therapy, it is recommended that parents/guardians receive training to run alongside therapy. The purpose of this training is to ensure that the skills your child learns during therapy sessions generalise to other people and settings. This training will help you to better understand your child’s learning and behaviour.
We provide services to individuals up to the age of eleven with a diagnosis of ASD. We can provide services at home, in schools or in the community, at a time that is convenient for you. To get more information, contact us. Once you have been in touch with us you can expect the following: We will schedule a triage call with our UK based BCBA to gather some important information. Following the triage call you will be provided with recommendations for services and what we think is going to work for you. We will conduct a Strengths and Needs assessment so that we can put together a highly individualised programme tailored to the needs of your child. If you decide to proceed with our services, this assessment is free of charge. If you would like the assessment and report only, a flat fee will be charged.
