Autism ABA Therapy in Northwest Indiana for teenagers and adults

ABA for Teens

Did you know that your child can attend public school through the age of 21? In addition, starting by age 16, it is required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEIA) that transition out of high school planning become a formal part of a student’s IEP. An Individualized Transition Plan (ITP) should be developed that outlines transition services that may include educational or vocational training, employment, living arrangements and community participation. Autism services using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) can assist your child with attaining these goals.
