Lane County Programs

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

The Child Center is proud to offer the families in our community an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Program specifically designed for children and adolescents with autism. Our ABA Program celebrates all of the unique qualities, interests, and abilities of your child, and we’re honored to be partners in their development. Our program’s goal is to ensure that your child is a happy, healthy, and enthusiastic learner and collaborator in their own therapy; we value their input, autonomy, and choices and work hard to build their skills in a way that’s interesting and fun!  

Each of the learners in our program has individualized goals that focus on increasing their ability to communicate their wants and needs in a safe way, build meaningful relationships, understand unfamiliar social circumstances, and manage difficult emotions. Your child’s goals will be developed in a collaborative effort by you, your child, and one of our Board Certified (and Licensed) Behavior Analysts who will do ongoing assessments of your child’s growth in these areas. Your Behavior Analyst will also provide your family with one-on-one monthly training so that your child is able to generalize their new skills to your home and their favorite community spots!

What does ABA at The Child Center Look Like?

Our ABA Program is housed in a bright and colorful clinic in Eugene, OR. We have a large indoor playground area, as well as individual therapy rooms and offices. All of the learners in our program begin by receiving services with us for 30 hours per week (Monday-Friday from 9 AM to 3 PM).

Each day, they work one-on-one with two different Registered Behavior Technicians/Licensed Behavior Analysis Interventionists who will integrate your child’s goals into activities that they enjoy. Your child will also have the opportunity to participate in multiple group activities (e.g., art, music, PE) throughout the day to help develop their relationship-building skills.

Typically, the learners in our program stay with us for several years; our job is to prepare them for a transition to an educational, home, and/or community-based setting with fewer supports. Every 6 months, your child’s therapeutic plan will be re-assessed and a potential decrease in their hours (to 15 per week) or potential discharge from our program will be discussed with you. We’ll always make sure that you and your child have the support to make a successful transition when this exciting moment arises!

If you’re interested in learning more about your child’s eligibility for our ABA Program, please call The Child Center’s Intake Department at (541) 726-1465. They will be happy to answer your questions and send you additional information.
