Verbal Beginnings Centers (VBC’s) house our early intervention services, feeding therapy, and social skills programs, as well as family education workshops and parents’ night out. Our Centers offer an enriched social environment with highly trained RBTs and BCBAs. 1:1 support is provided for both individualized therapy as well as support during group instruction.
At our Centers, peer interaction is incorporated into each child’s treatment plan. The availability of social opportunities with peers promotes critical skills necessary for children to excel independently in a variety of social settings.
Caregiver collaboration is an integral part of each child’s progress. BCBAs meet with each family regularly to share progress and discuss ways to generalize treatment in the home.
Verbal Beginnings Centers offer a unique opportunity for each child to work with dedicated RBTs, BCBAs and Program Coordinators. This team approach provides the foundation for your child to generalize new skills.
