ABA Therapy Programs
Our Expert ABA Team Provides
The Help Your Child Needs.
ABA Therapy Programs
ABA Therapy, or Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy, is the most recommended treatment for individuals on the autism spectrum.
While most ABA therapy programs focus on servicing children from 2-7 years old, Healing Haven welcomes new clients up to 16 years old because some individuals need continued support as they age. Our compassionate approach to ABA Therapy includes programs that address communication, behavioral and social needs.

Behavioral Health & Michigan ABA Therapy Programs
Early Intervention Program
Our Early Intervention Program is an intensive daytime center-based ABA Therapy program for our youngest clients. Children in this program typically receive 15-35 hours of ABA therapy a week.
Healing Haven staff provide children with a one-on-one, unique behavioral experience that focuses on promoting language, play and social skills. Our Early Intervention Program works to teach clients social communication and connection as well as how to develop relationships. Additionally, an emphasis is placed on decreasing behaviors that may prohibit learning.
Parents play an active role in the success of this program. As a result, families meet with their child’s BCBA on a consistent basis for ABA Parent Training. This allows them to further their learning and stay abreast of their children’s progress. Active parent participation in implementing ABA therapy at home leads to more success and generalization of skills in the natural environment, where the child will use these skills the most!
This program aims to provide opportunities to teach the skills necessary for success and transition into an educational setting. We strive to work collaboratively with all the child’s service providers to promote the best outcome.
Young Learners Program
This program continues to teach communication and socialization skills while preparing children behaviorally to transition into a less restrictive setting. Using a perfect blend of Discrete Trial teaching and...
natural environment teaching, we continue to build language and social skills while fostering the pivotal skills needed to be successful in a school environment.
Children will learn to focus in a group environment and attend for longer periods of time. They will experience opportunities to foster the use of their language in a social context. Some children may be eligible to participate in our Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced School Prep groups to put them on the pathway for school success.
The goal of any good ABA program is to provide opportunities to help the children generalize skills to the natural environment. Our mock classroom is made for just this purpose. Parents continue to play a vital role and parent participation is required. ABA parent training in this program ensures that the skills carry over from the clinic and into other areas of the child’s life. We also work collaboratively with school personnel, when possible, to create a customized therapeutic experience that will bridge the gap from clinic to school.
Some clients transition from the Young Learners Program to the School & Community Readiness Program, providing therapy options for clients who need it to continue services into their advanced teen years.
School & Community
While some people believe ABA programs are only for early learners, some individuals need continued support throughout their academic careers. Our School & Community Readiness Program works in collaboration with parents...
and schools to focus on functional language, social skills, pre-vocational, and life skills.
This one-of-a-kind center-based model operates during the day Monday-Friday. Children and teens participate each week in discrete trials, Natural Environment Training, and structured groups to address their unique learning needs. Children in this program are given opportunities to explore their interests and practice tasks of daily living such as grocery shopping, cooking, or even running our cafe which is open to staff and parents at select times during the day.
Our unique mock classroom environment promotes generalization to the school setting. As with all our ABA programs, active parent training and participation with the child’s BCBA is a must to ensure follow-through in the home and community environments.
Clients in this program often receive a combination of school and clinic-based services. Each ABA program is custom fit to meet the individual and family’s current needs and can grow with them. We also offer a variety of services for families who choose a different educational path for their children.
Evening & Weekend ABA Therapy
Our Harmony program offers evening ABA therapy with trained ABA therapists after school, in addition to Saturdays. This program is designed for children and teens ages 8 through 16 who are supported in school...
or through home-schooling during the day, but would benefit from additional time learning social and play skills, emotional regulation and communication skills. Additionally, some clients may work on mastering activities for daily living and developing prevocational skills for increasing future independence. This program is designed to work in “harmony” with the supports the child receives through school and what parents work on at home.
This one of a kind ABA program runs Monday through Thursday 4:30-7:30 and Saturday from 10 AM – 3 PM. The number of therapy hours for clients in our Harmony program will vary depending on their goals and specific needs. Hours are recommended based on the skills they are working on and range from 17 hours down to 6 hours.
ABA Parent Training and involvement is a requirement for all of our center-based programs. This empowers parents to carry out behavioral interventions at home and in the community. Doing so reinforces what their child is learning during their time in our clinic.
