Empowering Families Through Group Coaching and ABA Therapy

Raising a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or other developmental challenges can be complex. Our Group Family Coaching program empowers families with the tools and support they need to thrive, using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to foster positive dynamics and facilitate learning together. At the Cardinal Center, we see the immense potential in uniting families and provide a welcoming space where everyone can learn and progress together.

How Group Family Coaching Works: A Collaborative Approach to Learning and Growth

Our unique approach to Group Family Coaching involves integrating ABA therapy within group sessions, making it a pivotal learning experience for families facing ASD and other challenges. Our seasoned behavior analysts bring a wealth of expertise and a compassionate approach to each session, focusing on the family as a cohesive unit, not just the individual. We believe that informed and empowered families are crucial to a child’s overall success. Our Group Family Coaching program is designed to equip parents and caregivers with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate the unique challenges of raising a child with ASD or other developmental needs.
Group ABA therapy sessions at The Cardinal Center complement individual therapy efforts by providing a group learning environment where peers can model and reinforce appropriate behaviors. This setting allows for the application of ABA principles in a natural, social context which helps in building crucial life skills such as initiating conversations, understanding social cues, and turn-taking.

Our sessions are interactive and engaging, often involving games and activities tailored to develop specific social skills. These sessions not only reinforce skills learned in one-on-one settings but also complement other therapeutic efforts like speech therapy or occupational therapy when applicable.
