Increased Independence | Benefits of ABA Therapy at CST Academy

Increased Independence

Through individualized ABA plans, we empower your child to achieve increased independence. We target important life skills, promoting self-reliance and confidence in daily activities, both at our centers and in other environments. We believe it is essential that we work toward empowering children to become adults who are able to make their own decisions and have the ability to express themselves freely.
Facilitating Transitions | Benefits of ABA Therapy at CST Academy

Facilitating Transitions

We know that each life transition is filled with excitement coupled with nerves regarding how your little one will handle life’s changes. We specifically work on preparing your child for both big and small changes in their routines by teaching coping strategies, emotional regulation, and empowering your child and family with tools to navigate change.
Cultivating Crucial Skills | Benefits of ABA Therapy at CST Academy

Cultivating Crucial Skills

The skills we work on in ABA therapy are not a one-size-fits-all approach. ABA goals are as unique as your child! We individualize your child’s care plan to work on the skill areas in which they would benefit from support while highlighting and strengthening their innate gifts. Expressive and receptive communication, play, imitation, social interactions, learner readiness skills, toileting, and other daily living skills are some of the many areas we focus on within our play-based therapy.
Neurodiverse-Affirming Lens | Benefits of ABA Therapy at CST Academy

Neurodiverse-Affirming Lens

We prioritize the uniqueness of your child. Their strength comes from their individual character and personality. An autism diagnosis does not change who your child is but allows us to better understand how they learn and see the world. That in itself is a gift.
Collaborative Team | Benefits of ABA Therapy at CST Academy

Collaborative Team

Our multi-disciplinary team is composed of behavior analysts, ABA therapists, speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, feeding therapists, psychologists, teachers, and you - the best expert on your child. Your child’s CST team meets regularly to discuss your child’s progress and come up with shared goals in order to ensure every aspect of your child’s day is focused on helping them become the very best version of themselves. Just as your child is part of our community of learners, our staff community relies on one another to work toward common goals in partnership with your family.
Play-Based Therapy | Benefits of ABA Therapy at CST Academy

Play-Based Therapy

Kids learn best through play. Our ABA therapy team will create a plan that highlights your child’s interests and preferences and uses these to develop teaching opportunities. Our goal is to find your child’s smile - that joy lends to natural learning. By incorporating learning opportunities within developmentally appropriate play, your child will be able to reach their fullest potential.
Strengths-Based Perspective | Benefits of ABA Therapy at CST Academy

Strengths-Based Perspective

While you may feel overwhelmed by what you hope your child will learn and accomplish, your child already has so many strengths. It is our goal to show you the many strengths your child possesses and build off of these areas. Your child’s therapy team will partner with your family to continue to increase these strength areas while bolstering areas of growth through play-based therapy.

100+ 5-Star Google Reviews | CST Academy
"After almost 2 years our son’s time at CST Academy has come to an end. The preschool program has done wonders for him. Ms Jaclyn is such a warm, kind and patient teacher. She and my son’s OT (Ms. Nikki) and ST (Ms. Erika) worked together to ensure he was meeting all of his goals. The level of collaboration between all therapies shows how dedicated they are to helping your child reach their full potential. They have all made such an impact on him, it’s amazing to see the changes since he started there. He has blossomed into a strong, confident boy who is more than prepared to start his new school in a few weeks. We will always fondly remember our time at CST Academy. Can’t recommend them enough!"
"I worked with CST Academy over a period of about 10 months. They are absolutely incredible! I also referred a friend to their program and the progress his child made just blew him away! Usually, I don’t write reviews unless I feel strongly compelled one way or the other, and in this case I do! You cannot go wrong here. I would not trust my children to anyone else. Call them and see for yourself. I have seen other programs and there is just no comparison."
