Autism and Behavioral Spectrum is the world’s first Reggio Emilia ABA
therapy clinic committed to building respect, responsibility, and
community for a brighter future.
We accomplish this by creating a supportive and enriching educational environment that fosters increased knowledge through exploration and discovery. A self-guided curriculum is created based on the needs and interests of each individual child. By committing to these principles and the highest level of therapy, we guide each individual to a promising future.
Therapy Through Play
Therapy through play is a term used in education and psychology to describe how a child can learn to make sense of the world around them. Through play children can develop social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally, and gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments.
The Reggio Emilia Philosophy
Reggio Emilia, a village in northern Italy, was the first to adopt the mindset that children are born with “a
hundred languages” through which they can express their ideas. The aim of this approach is teaching children
how to use these symbolic languages (eg., words, gestures, movement, painting, sculpting, drama, music) and
personal interests functionally everyday life.
The Reggio Emilia Approach requires team members to work with intelligent sensitivity and special empathy
towards children. Leaders must possess the habit of questioning their certainties, a great deal of awareness
and availability, a critical style of research, and the skills to talk, listen, and learn from children and their parents. It is their
responsibility to organize the classroom environment and it’s rich and various materials in
a way that makes the classrooms amiable environments, as well as beautiful and engaging spaces. Visitors of
Reggio Emilia schools often denote the quality and creativity of the physical space, as special care is given to
the appearance of the environment. A strong sense of beauty, along with spatial design that fosters
environmental exploration and social interaction, are essential elements of the Reggio Emilia educational
These children need our help. And that’s why we created ABSpectrum.
