ABA Therapy for Autism in Hartford, CT

Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), is a developmental disorder. Its severity varies from person-to-person with symptoms ranging from verbal and non-verbal communication issues to social difficulties to repetitive behaviors. Yet with a proper diagnosis and behavior therapy, individuals with ASD can develop and master core functional capabilities of communication, social skills, daily living skills and adaptive behaviors. 

With an estimate of over 1 in 54 children having ASD, families require the right resources to understand the disorder and delivery therapy which can yield meaningfully positive outcomes for each individual. 

Fortunately, Ascend Autism can help. Our autism treatment programs for families in Connecticut offers a natural and accessible approach to improving the behaviors of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Helping Children And Families Succeed!

Our Autism Treatment Program in Hartford, CT

Ascend Autism’s program is rooted in the principles of a therapy called Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) which utilizes a method that engages a child organically. ABA is a scientifically supported therapy and considered the “gold-standard” for addressing Autism, endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Institute of Mental Health. ABA helps individuals improve communication skills, social skills, memory, focus, and activities of daily living. As a flexible and pragmatic approach, it relies heavily on positive reinforcement.

Types of Therapy and Support Services We Provide

Autism treatments are most effective when they start as early as possible in the child’s life. Signs of autism can develop in children by 18 months of age, and treatment can start as soon as a medical professional provides a diagnosis. Early intervention usually takes place at home and is customizable to each child’s particular needs. We use different techniques, tools, and games to create a supportive, stimulating environment in a familiar location.

This kind of treatment is of particular benefit to children who are school age and would benefit from after-school therapy sessions. In our program, the number of hours of treatment is chosen based on the needs of each individual child.


Someone with autism may not naturally intuit meaning from interactions that come naturally to others. For example, eye contact, casual conversation using idioms and euphemisms, and facial or other bodily cues can present significant difficulties to someone with ASD. Therefore, we teach children how to listen, understand, and process verbal and non-verbal cues. Further, we encourage mastery of other one-on-one interactions.

Parents of children with autism face an assortment of challenges, both emotional and practical. Thankfully, Ascend Autism’s treatment programs can help. Our parental services programs show parents how to be more than just caregivers. Instead of being reactive or passive when dealing with ASD, we train you to be a crucial part of your child’s ongoing treatment. You’ll learn to help your child with their key issues, leading to improvements at home, school, and beyond.
