"An integrated approach... Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy and ABA Collaboration On Goals

Speech Therapy and ABA Collaboration on Goals

Speech and language therapists (SaLT) assess and treat speech, language and communication problems in people in order to help them better communicate. To be most effective, speech and language therapy requires the integration of knowledge from several disciplines. It is essential that consultation and collaboration is included.

At Learn 2 Learn Clinic our goal is to provide a combined integrated programme, created from the perspective of both “speech and language” from our SaLT and “behavioural support and teaching techniques” from our ABA consultant, in order to reduce behaviour problems while offering teaching procedures using principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) in a language therapy.

Occupational Therapy and ABA Collaboration on Goals

The Occupational Therapist (OT) is the professional uniquely prepared to assess a child’s sensory needs and draw a sensory diet.  The collaboration between OT and ABA can enhance the successful outcomes of both therapies.

It is an age-old question: “Is it sensory, or is it behaviour?”   Our occupational therapist is answering sensory input and our ABA consultant is behavioural ones'. We believe, by defining terms and setting mutual functional goals, working in tandem, a sensory plus a behavioural approach work best of all.

Depending on individual needs when required, Learn 2 Learn Clinic provides effective OT integrated ABA programmes.

The Family’s Needs

Your child’s goal will be determined by our team who design and implement the combined programmes of ABA, OT and SaLT. Families recognise evidence-based treatments and have a right to know if a technique is effective.

We will tell you whether the technique is working or not after data collection and analysis by our team.
