Autism & ABA Services
Welcome to Anchor Rehabilitation's Autism and Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) Services, where we are committed to helping children and young adults with autism or developmental disabilities achieve maximum independence in school, at home, and in their community.
At Anchor Rehabilitation, we understand the unique challenges that individuals with autism or developmental disabilities face. That's why we offer a range of evidence-based ABA services to help our clients achieve their goals. Our ABA services are tailored to meet the individual needs of each client, and we work closely with families, schools, and other providers to ensure continuity of care.
Anchor's Autism and ABA Services are part of our larger offering of home care services. Our staff of experienced clinicians can provide assistive care (personal and home support) to help with activities of daily living, nursing care for chronic and acute conditions, and habilitation services to help people with developmental and intellectual disabilities live more independently. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you or your loved one achieve greater independence and quality of life.
A Functional Behaviour Assessment is an approach used to understand the purpose or function behind a specific behaviour exhibited by an individual. In the context of autism, developmental disabilities, and brain injury, this involves observing and collecting data on the individual’s behaviour in different settings and circumstances. The aim is to identify what triggers and reinforces the behaviour. For instance, the behaviour may serve to gain attention, escape from a task, or gain access to a desired item or activity. Understanding the function of behaviour is key in developing an effective intervention strategy.
Our team of behaviour analysis professionals are passionate about their work and view it as much more than just a job—it's their calling. Everyone who works at Anchor Rehabilitation is united through a Servant's Heart Mentality, our company philosophy that is the foundation of our culture and guiding force behind everything we do. Our core values of compassion, excellence, and reliability are
ever-present in the work we do with every client.
