Newberry Park’s intensive and progressive ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis) treatment is a specialised program for education of children with special needs and learning difficulties. At Newberry Park we use a very active teaching and learning process that is purely driven by goals and outcomes. Our teaching and therapy is individually tailored to each child which, in the beginning stages, relies heavily on 1-on-1 therapy with the main focus on communication, academics, play, social, self-help and other functional living skills.
The amount of ABA treatment therapy hours will be dependent upon the student and may range from 15 hours to as many as 40 hours per week. Sessions are usually based on 3-hour blocks and may occur 5 days per week.
The duration of therapy sessions and the number of hours per child are all dependent on the following factors:
The age of the child
School placement when appropriate
