EncoreABA TM

Full-spectrum support
for kids on the spectrum

Typically covered by insurance

  • For children across the autism spectrum, the many intricacies of personal development do not come easily. The good news is that, with the proper tools at their disposal, growth and progress are very possible.

  • Our mission with EncoreABA™ is to provide those tools. Administering cutting-edge therapies that are typically covered by insurance, we nurture children with autism so they gain as much independence as possible and grow into functioning and contributing members of society.

Positively effective


EncoreABA™ takes ABA therapy to a new level of effectiveness by focusing on child-initiated play in fun, welcoming environments. We use positive, natural reinforcement to help build social skills and develop thinking strategies useful throughout life.

Personally designed


Children on the spectrum are special and inherently unique. No one fits into a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all set of programs and drills, which is why we design your child’s therapy based on a custom set of needs, preferences, interests, skills, and family support system.

Organically grown


Our philosophy combines key clinical innovations with advanced ABA therapies. Unrestricted by stigmatized conventional ABA, we incorporate a more organic approach built around individual development, motivation, responsivity, and intervention.

From learning through play to learning to play

Studies have shown that skills such as motivation, multi-cue responsivity, self-management and social initiations are pivotal to broader development in the social, behavioral and communicative areas.

To make the most of child play under EncoreABA™, our Registered Behavior Technicians (supervised by experienced Board Certified and licensed Behavior Analysts) administer treatment through play. Nuanced Social Skills Training, including child choice, task variation, rewarding attempts, and the use of positive reinforcers, is integrated to address the needs of children with high functioning autism.

Core social skills are mastered first, followed by more advanced conversational skills that lead to sustained interactive play.

By providing your child with a wide range of communication tools for expressing feelings, needs and desires, interaction with others becomes more enjoyable, which builds self-confidence in social settings. Children under Encore care consistently show a desire to grow their proficiency in social interaction and communication.

Making it
their time to
shine

Each child’s program is designed to accommodate your schedule while keeping in mind the best hours and environment for your child to learn and interact. For some children, this means learning one-on-one, on weekends, at home, while others may prefer to interact in a group setting at school.

To maximize learning potential and enjoyment, we work with you and your child to create a consistent schedule and step-by-step development plan with milestones. Every success is celebrated to instill confidence, pride and the desire to do more.

Encore also offers Sunday and after-school social groups to give your child an opportunity to interact with other children in a safe and fun environment. These programs create an inspiring atmosphere where children make friends and practice their new acquired life skills.

A Word About Insurance

Many children don’t have the right forms of insurance to obtain ABA services, which is why we connect families with insurance professionals who guide them through the process of obtaining the correct coverage that helps them tap into the services and support they need.
