SPARTA specializes in the implementation of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and offers home – and center – based ABA services.
We serve the age groups from 5 – 21 with ASD and/or other developmental disabilities who may be exhibiting severe delays in their cognitive functioning, speech/language and communication skills, social-emotional functioning, motor abilities and self-help skills/adaptive functioning. SPARTA utilizes instructional methods in ABA such as discrete-trial teaching, generalized imitation training, echoic/vocal mand training, discrimination training/multiple exemplar training, incidental teaching, and natural environment teaching.
We’re here to help.
Sparta Center Model
The SPARTA program begins at the student’s home in the morning, and focuses on assisting them to complete activities of daily living (ADL) skills, such as personal hygiene routines, independently dressing, and making a simple breakfast, utilizing a digital motivational system and photographic/written activity schedule. After the morning routine is completed, the student will travel to the SPARTA Center with their therapist and complete multiple activity schedules for the remainder of the day, while also working on their individualized treatment goals. After returning home, the student will have a break before their after-school ABA program begins. Students then work on completing their afternoon activity schedule and evening/nightly routines such as eating dinner, learning to bathe and get ready for bed.
