Essential Speech and ABA Therapy to Expand Autism Services for a Growing Community
PEARLAND, Texas - Dec. 6, 2023 - PRLog -- Essential Speech and ABA Therapy, a Texas-based innovator in collaborative treatment for children on the autism spectrum, is working to advance autism services for a growing community, with new locations and expansive services in the most underserved areas. Currently serving six different cities throughout Texas, including a new location in Cypress, and several locations in Georgia, Virginia, and New Mexico, ABA Therapy's vast resources has led them to meet the growing needs of autistic children across the country.
"No one should have to wait for these essential, life-changing services. An early diagnosis and immediate introduction to a collaborative therapy program can provide the crucial developmental skills necessary for each child to connect with the world," said Essential Speech and ABA Therapy President, Nafisa Obi. "Our unique approach combines three powerful therapy practices under one roof, helping to ease the burden of long driving distances, extended wait lists, and the need for multiple facilities, allowing us to cater directly to the diverse needs of each child."
Known for their proprietary team approach and individually tailored therapy sessions for children, Essential Speech and ABA Therapy utilizes a combination of board-certified behavior analysts, speech-language pathologists, and occupational therapists to help young children develop daily life skills while building strong language and communication abilities.
ABA therapy has largely been recognized as the most effective treatment for autistic children due to its positive reinforcement, scientific behavioral training, and cognitive developmental support. The most recent data from 2021 reveals that 1 in 36 children are diagnosed with autism, and 6.8 million adults and children live with Autism in the US, a number expected to increase within the next ten years.
"Despite the growing number of children in need, there are only 1,656 non-profit and for-profit therapy centers and schools as of 2022. Our growing facilities and services allow us to better assist this underserved population and enable children to meet their full potential," said Obi.
