Little Leaves is a therapeutic support provider, serving children with autism spectrum disorders and related challenges, and their families. The therapeutic approach utilized is based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Little Leaves operates in Washington D.C., Northern Virginia, Baltimore and Chicago [1]. The program is part of Capital Education Group, which also operates The Auburn School and Camp Aristotle.

Approach

Little Leaves therapeutic approach is developed and overseen by doctoral-level Psychologists and Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs)[2] All clients are assessed to understand a child’s strengths and weaknesses. Subsequently an individualized therapy program is developed based on ABA principles.

Therapy sessions with the child include the teaching and practicing of a number of skills at a time, in accordance with ABA methodology. Each skill is practiced until the child has mastered it and generalized the skill outside the therapeutic setting [3]

In addition to working with the child, parent training is also a key component because children make the most progress when ABA strategies are used throughout the day.
