Special Education in Orange County
Direct ABA Intervention
Direct ABA intervention includes skill teaching and implementation of strategies to reduce inappropriate behavior. Behavior Interventionists are trained in behavior management, skill teaching, DTT, NET, and many other methodologies to ensure quality of services
Parent consultation provides parents with the tools and skills to implement the techniques and strategies of ABA on their own. Our parent training curriculum is adaptable for parents/caregivers at any level.
Supervision is provided by a BCBA, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, who is trained in the supervision of cases. Supervision includes modeling, teaching, feedback, and data analysis. Supervisors at Acuity Behavior Solutions provide individualized programs for each client and modify programs/skills being taught in order to maximize skill teaching.
Assessment guides our intervention. Our comprehensive assessments cover a wide range of areas with a specific focus on areas of autism in children and difficulty for individuals with autism. Communication, social, and behavioral skills are a common focus. Assessment of behaviors at Acuity Behavior Solutions includes a functional behavior assessment.

Should I still do ABA if I already have behavior services in the school district? Is a common question parents ask. Not all children with an IEP, Individualized Education Plan, or free public education with the school district will qualify for behavior services in school. The behavior services provided in school are education focused, and are required to focus exclusively on areas that affect education. Schools provide a wonderful service that helps children with their education and academics. However, there are a large number of goals and skills that a school district may not be able to work on, which in-home ABA will cover, including functional communication in the home, social-emotional skills, home based behaviors, many self-care routines, and any other area of deficit that does not affect the child’s academics.
Families wanting to ensure their child is enrolled in all therapies to maximize progress may wish to enroll their child in public school to address academic areas, and in in-home therapy for all non-academic areas (socialization, functional communication, behavior, independence, and self-help).
