At Super Kids we specialise in assessment and support for autistic children, but also routinely work with children who have other diagnoses, such as global developmental delays, intellectual delays and speech delays.
We design and oversee comprehensive therapy programs to address skill deficits and behavioural concerns in all developmental areas, such as language, play, social skills and daily living skills. All our services are based on the science of applied behaviour analysis (ABA). Many different evidence-based strategies are used within an ABA program to teach new skills and reduce behaviours of concern.
ABA is an effective teaching method – teaching procedures derived from ABA principles have consistently been shown to teach a range of important skills, including communication, language, play, social skills, and self-care.
In this intensive ABA package, we design and oversee comprehensive therapy programs to address skill deficits and behavioural concerns in all developmental areas.
This service is best for children with behaviours of concern, such as dangerous behaviour, so that we can work together to find out what replacement skills we can teach and address them early on to give them the best possible start. As with all Super Kids packages, these sessions can be done at home or at our Super Kids HQ.
Depending on the purpose of the session, we offer services in a variety of ways for you to get the help you need, including:
Please note that a travel charge will apply for sessions outside of HQ.
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is based on the principles of learning which apply to all people, not just autistic children. It is a scientific approach to understanding behavior. ABA refers to a set of principles that focus on how behaviors change, or are affected by the environment, as well as how learning takes place. Every behaviour and skill that we all learn is a result of the same processes used in ABA! When we first meet your child, we will use an assessment to identify your child’s current skills and any support needs, and then develop an individualised set of programs to break down priority skills into smaller, easy to learn steps. Then we will continue to increase the complexity of these programs until they have met their short and long term goals.
Our initial 15 minute chat is free. During this time we can decide what is the best service for you and your family. The fee structure is tailor-made based on your needs and best practice recommendations for your child. This can occur over the phone or at our office in Gladesville. Follow this link to book in an Intake Meeting.
This depends on the behaviour you are looking to change, the environment and how long this behaviour has already been occurring for. This is something that we will discuss during our initial 15-min chat.
Super Kids is a centre- based and mobile-based service that offers a variety of ways for you to get the help you need, including:
All programs are supervised by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) or Certified Behaviour Analyst (CBA). To find out more about why this is important and what a BCBA is, click here). All Super Kids programs are designed, implemented and supervised by a Behaviour Consultant and implemented by either Super Kids behaviour technicians or independent behaviour technicians that you hire. Depending on the program recommended for your child, your Behaviour Consultant will usually see your child weekly. This will include monthly team meeting, parent training, behaviour technician training, daycare/school visits, programming, assessment and reports.
Yes. The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will fund ABA services for autistic children and children with other developmental disabilities. Super Kids is not currently a registered NDIS provider, however, funding can still be used clients who have plans that are self-managed or plan-managed. If your plan is not currently self-managed, you can request for this to be changed by contacting your NDIS coordinator.
At Super Kids, we can assist with helping you access NDIS funding. We will do this by completing initial assessments and re-assessments, help with goal setting and implementing procedures to track your child’s progress towards their goals, to provide evidence that the service is effective in helping your child reach their NDIS goals.
ABA is based on the principles of learning which apply to all people, not just autistic children. Your child does not need to have a diagnosis of autism to benefit from ABA. Many children with other developmental delays, such as global developmental delays and speech delays may require support in achieving their goals. Contact us to discuss your child’s unique needs and we can assist in determining if we are the right service provider for your child.
ABA programs often collaborate with other professionals like Occupational therapists, Speech Pathologists, teachers and educators to provide a consistent, team approach to your child’s learning and reduction of problem behaviours. If your child is receiving services from multiple service providers, it’s a good idea to speak to each of your professionals to identify if and how they collaborate with other services. Discussions via email, phone, or face-to-face meetings may be important to ensure consistency for your child, and to get the most out of the services they are receiving.
We offer an initial 15 minute discovery call for free. During this time, we can decide what is the best service for you and your family. Please contact [email protected] to book a discovery call.
