Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) aims to identify environmental variables that shape and influence behavior. Because Autism affects language development, maladaptive behaviors such as frequent tantrums, aggression and noncompliance can arise. Through analyzing and understanding these behaviors, ABA provides tools to help families address behavioral difficulties while helping children learn to build functional communication and social skills.
Lindegard Therapy provides home-based Speech Therapy (SLP) services and accepts insurance
Whether your child has limited verbal skills, unclear speech, difficulties following directions, or a restricted expressive vocabulary, speech and language therapy can address the communication difficulties that are often at the root of problem behaviors such as tantrums and aggression. For older children whose language is more developed, speech interventions can help address more subtle comprehension and social communication concerns.
Lindegard Therapy provides Applied Behavior Analysis & Speech Language Pathology services in Portland, Oregon. At Lindegard Therapy, we know that all children can learn but that some children learn differently than others. For this reason, we offer treatment that is tailored to the individual and built on a solid family-centered platform. Our interventions focus on improving your child's social, communicative and daily living abilities by creating a learning-rich environment designed to target these skill areas, while also maintaining an open and collaborative relationship with you as the family.
At Lindegard Therapy we believe that a combined and collaborative approach to therapy is most beneficial to your child. For this reason, we utilize Speech and Language strategies combined with ABA methodologies to develop research-based holistic practices that best fit your child's needs.
Quality (not quantity) is most important to us. Every family is unique and there is no one prescribed method for conducting therapy and working with families. We believe wholeheartedly that the family drives the service delivery model and that your input and participation is at the core of treatment goals and progress. We take time to build strong and lasting relationships and understand that YOU play the biggest role in your child's life..
