How to choose the right practioner
We realize how important it is for you to find the right practitioner for your child. That is why we believe you need to work with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. That is exactly what you will find at Swank Early Skills Development.
There is a true risk with unskilled, uninterested staff implementing intensive ABA services that are very rote and robotic, non-functional skills that are then passed along to your child. We understand the concerns regarding bad implementation of intensive ABA. One of the reasons we opened our own practice after over 2 decades in public service was frustration when working with uninterested teams, who were being directed by administrators to implement this type of programming, but who were just going through the motions and who were not effective or responsible with their implementation.
This is why it is important to work with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst at Swank Early Skills Development.
