Promise Center for Autism is located in San Antonio, TX. We currently offer evidence-based Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy for children with autism and other developmental delays ages 18 months through 12 years old.
Our services are provided in a variety of settings such as center, home, school, and community, implementing behavioral interventions that include direct ABA therapy (with the inclusion of Naturalistic Environment Training (NET) and Incidental Teaching, Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT), Verbal Behavior (VB), etc.), parent and staff training, consultations, social skills group and community supports.
We are a team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA), Assistant Behavior Analysts, Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT), and trained paraprofessionals that develop, implement and monitor comprehensive interventions programs that include language, communication, social, motor, play, academic, self-help and maladaptive behavior goals.
Our behavior intervention plans and treatment reports are based on Functional Behavioral Assessments and/or Functional Analyses. Intervention plans are individualized and tailored to each child’s specific needs. Each child is unique and we believe that success and progress come from praise and motivation. Our programs focus on building every child's confidence and motivation through positive reinforcement.
When creating our plans and providing therapy sessions, we promote the child's natural strengths while considering their current skill level in each developmental domain. We value each child's personality and individualism. We incorporate ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) strategies.
ACT is a unique empirically based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behavior change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility. Psychological flexibility means contacting the present moment fully as a conscious human being, and based on what the situation affords, changing or persisting in behavior in the service of chosen values (to learn more about ACT, click here).
In being more accepting of our children's thoughts and feelings, we hope to create a positive and compassionate learning environment while providing the highest quality services. We also emphasize the family's engagement on interventions. For that reason, we encourage family members and/or caregivers to become an active part and advocate in the child's treatment course.
