The Wayman Center provides intensive, individualized, one-to-one Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services to children with special needs, especially children who are suspected of or have been identified as having an Autism Spectrum Disorder, such as Autism, PDD-NOS and Asperger Syndrome/Disorder. Services are designed to change behavior, reducing problem behaviors and increasing skills in areas of deficit, especially language and communication.

 

 

Center-based services include the following:

Each child’s behavioral needs are assessed at least every 6 months, and this assessment usually includes the use of The ABLLS-R and the VB-MAPP.  After assessment, an Individualized Treatment Plan (ITP) is developed, including measurable goals and a Behavior Reduction Plan that includes antecedent interventions as well as consequences. Progress on the goals is reported to parents, in writing, every six weeks.

 

Services at TWC are fee-based, by the hour, so that we are better able to provide a highly individualized program for each child, therefore enabling us to meet individual needs that often vary greatly from child to child. Services are provided from 8:30am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday. TWC is closed Saturday and Sunday.

 

Schedules at TWC vary from child to child, but each child receiving services at The Wayman Center must receive a minimum of 6 hours per week, divided across at least 3 days per week.  Each session must be at least one and one half hours long.

 

There is no minimum age or maximum age for children who may attend TWC, and admission is decided on a case–by-case basis, according to whether or not our services are likely to result in desired outcomes, based on the child's individual behavioral needs.
