Therapeutic Intensive Programs

Professional Therapy Associates (PTA) is committed to providing comprehensive and individualized therapeutic programs for children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Our approach, which includes a multidisciplinary team of clinicians and a focus on evidence-based ABA therapy, sets PTA apart from competitors. Here are some key highlights that make PTA stand out:

Multidisciplinary Approach: PTA's collaborative approach involving Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), Licensed Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists, and Physical Therapists ensures that children receive a holistic evaluation and a customized treatment plan that addresses their unique needs.

Medical Necessity Assessment: PTA conducts thorough evaluations to determine medical necessity and develop appropriate treatment plans. This ensures that services are tailored to each child's specific requirements.

One-on-One ABA Services: The provision of one-on-one ABA services by ABA therapists, overseen by BCBAs, demonstrates a commitment to individualized and evidence-based intervention. This approach is known to be effective for children with ASD.

Comprehensive Services: Beyond ABA therapy, PTA offers a range of other skilled services, including speech therapy, feeding therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. This comprehensive approach addresses various aspects of a child's development.

Specialized Therapeutic Equipment: The use of therapeutic equipment such as vestibular swings, balance beams, sensory bins, and others is a valuable resource for sensory integration and motor skill development. It highlights PTA's dedication to creating a supportive and stimulating environment.

Structured Social Skill Instruction: The inclusion of structured social skill instruction is crucial for children with ASD, and PTA integrates this into its programs. Activities like Circle Time, designed by therapists, address developmental milestones and promote social interaction.

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC): The use of AAC devices and tools reflects PTA's commitment to helping non-verbal or minimally verbal children communicate effectively. This empowers children to express their needs and thoughts.

Developmental Order: The consideration of developmental order in designing learning objectives during activities like Circle Time indicates a thoughtful and strategic approach to therapy, ensuring that skills are developed in a logical progression.


Professional Therapy Associates offers a comprehensive and individualized approach to therapy for children with ASD, taking into account not only ABA but also various other therapeutic modalities and equipment to meet the unique needs of each child. Your commitment to evidence-based practices, interdisciplinary collaboration, and creating a supportive and stimulating environment is commendable and sets a high standard for autism therapy services.
