Trumpet’s autism therapy is supported by applied behavior analysis (ABA). The highly trained practitioners in this large field of study are called Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs®). They use distinct principles to understand the relationship between an individual’s behavior and the events in their environment, and how one can moderate the other. ABA is endorsed by the U.S. Surgeon General, and it is the only form of autism therapy covered by health insurance.
High-level autism therapy provided by Trumpet
Why might a BCBA put great time and effort into teaching your child to play Go Fish during autism therapy? The answer could be pivotal response training, or the method of teaching a pivotal behavior that, once learned, will influence other behaviors. You may see improvements in your child’s ability to take turns, plan ahead and utilize their working memory throughout their day, all due to pivotal response training during a simple card game.
Story-based intervention is also useful in autism therapy. Suppose your child needs to prepare for a fire drill at school. Merely explaining its sound and speed may not be concrete enough for him, so your BCBA will also prepare a simple storybook about the action that will take place and the expected response. Story-based intervention during autism therapy can help children feel greater ownership and preparation over the events in their day.
