ECA (EARLY CHILDHOOD AUTISM SPECIALIZED HABILITATION)

The Early Childhood Autism Specialized Habilitation (ECA) program is an intensive, comprehensive treatment model that targets a variety of interventions for the enrolled member. This program focuses on developmental skills, behavioral intervention, and/or sensorimotor development. Arion Care Solutions clinical staff will conduct an assessment of the member’s challenging behavior or areas of skill deficit, develop a treatment program, model implementation of the intervention plan, coach and train the family members/caregivers and service providers in the implementation and usage of the treatment program, review data with the team and provide follow-up consultation as well as ongoing oversight to ensure proper implementation of the treatment program.

Clinic-Based ABA Treatment

“ABA is a well- developed scientific discipline among the helping professions that focus on the analysis, design, implementation, and evaluation of social and other environmental modifications to produce meaningful changes in human behavior. ABA includes the use of direct observation, measurement, and functional analysis of the relations between environment and behavior. ABA uses changes in environmental events, including antecedent stimuli and consequences to produce practical and significant changes in behavior” (Behavior Analyst Certification Board, 2014).

Clinic Location: Chandler, Arizona
