Vista Autism Services | Early Intervention Early Intervention - Vista Autism Services





Vista's Early Intervention program offers Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy in a fun, play-based clinic setting for children diagnosed with autism . Children learn a range of skills that are key to bridging developmental gaps and preparing for school. We can begin services starting as early as 12 months and up to age 7, or until they enter kindergarten.

A play-based aba approach

ABA therapy is a research-proven methodology that helps individuals with autism effectively engage in activities and relationships in a way that is meaningful to them in all facets of their life. Vista's Early Intervention program specializes in a naturalistic approach to ABA therapy. We design learning opportunities to come up naturally throughout the day by embedding behavior therapy techniques into daily routines typical of this age, including playtime activities.

Progress guided by
behavior experts

Each child's progress is guided by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Our BCBAs work closely with Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) to implement, assess, and modify personalized intervention strategies. Vista's Early Intervention program always has the availability of a 1:1 staff-child ratio, with staff rotating between children throughout the day to promote flexibility and the generalization of skills.

Building skills for
a bright future

Using cues and rewards during natural play, RBTs encourage skill-building in a classroom-like environment with both indoor and outdoor play areas. They work with each child toward roughly 12-16 goals per day that are designed for projected mastery within three months.

Areas of growth may include:
