- We have openings for new clients for ABA services! Check out our website www.BasicsABATherapy.comWe have 2 openings for families who are looking for morning hours and one opening during the afternoon hours.
2. We are offering Social Skills Group for 6 weeks this summer. It is for children ages 6-9. The group will cover friendship, emotional skills(recognizing and reacting), conversation skills, emotional regulation, and play skills. The profile of children who participate are generally typically functioning but need help in social interactions and emotional regulation. We currently provide services to students that have been diagnosed with ADHD, LD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism, and Aspergers (however, a diagnosis is not necessary!) Group is a fun, cooperation-based experience and students generally really enjoy it. Classes would be Wednesdays from 6:30pm-7:15pm in the Brookland neighborhood in DC.
