About ABC Group Hawaii
Founded in 2006, ABC Group is a family-owned company specializing in providing top-notch ABA treatment to children with a diagnosis of autism, other developmental delays and behavioral challenges and their families. ABC Group uses a framework for teaching language provided by Skinner’s Analysis of Verbal Behavior, as well as precision teaching for promoting fluent behavior. We specialize in working with children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), ages 12 months through 18 years. Each child’s treatment program is designed based upon his/her individual needs as determined by assessment. Our goal is to engineer our programming to produce socially significant changes in our learners so that they can be successful in environments with decreasing levels of support. The terminal aim of every child’s program is to “close the gap” between their current skill levels and those of their typically developing peers and to have our clients learn skills that are functional and promote independence from caregivers.
