AboutAboutAbout
Smart Scholars offers children an engaging environment for developmental services. We embrace each child and their individual needs offering a one-of-a-kind center with indoor and outdoor space which is designed to promote growth, engagement, positive behavior, increase quality of life and enable individuality.

Smart Scholars is dedicated to children of all ages who may be experiencing challenges with learning, behavior and communication. We provide ABA therapy for a variety of developmental delays, disabilities and conditions including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We utilize a comprehensive approach to develop a tailored treatment plan that truly address your child's individual needs. Our comprehensive curricula target skills in eight areas of human functioning such as language, play, cognition, executive function, motor, adaptive, academic and social. Through the process of ABA intervention, we reduce challenging behaviors, increase wanted behaviors and improve your child's functioning in targeted areas.

At Smart Scholars we are more than just therapy, we are family. Because, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”- Helen Keller

Behavior Intervention Plans

Behavior Intervention Plans are developed from a Functional Behavior Assessment. Behavior Intervention Plans increase the acquisition and use of new alternative skills, decrease the problem behavior and facilitate general improvements in the quality of life of the individual, his or her family, and members of the support team.

Verbal Behavior Therapy

Verbal Behavior Therapy teaches communication and language using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and the theories of behaviorist B.F. Skinner. The intervention focuses on the understanding of why we use words to communicate and how we connect words with their purpose. This type of therapy focuses on four language types or operants: mand, tact, intraverbal and echoic.
