Virtual ABA Programs & Services

Virtual programs provide children and teens on the autism spectrum with a way to engage in ABA services from the comfort of their own home. Our team is committed to providing high quality service, no matter how we connect.

Virtual programs have benefits for both children and their caregivers. Programs may require hands on supervision from a parent or caregiver during their sessions to aid participation and communication. Being able to connect virtually offers caregivers an opportunity participate in sessions and learn techniques that can be integrated into home life.

Are you looking for individualized coaching with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) to better support your child or youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)? We are here to help!   

Kinark’s ABA Coaching is available to families of children and youth under the age of 18 with a diagnosis of ASD. This service provides caregivers with ongoing coaching individualized to the strengths and needs of their child.   

During these sessions, a BCBA Clinician will meet with parents and caregivers virtually using our secure video conferencing platform to identify goals and provide individualized strategies based on the principles of ABA. Caregivers will also receive specific resources to better equip them in supporting their child. 

Our BCBA clinicians will develop a customized service plan tailored to each child, and use Behaviour Skills Training (BST) to coach parents and caregivers. BST is an evidence-based approach to coaching that can be effectively used virtually, and includes identifying and explaining individualized strategies, modeling those strategies, requesting parents and caregivers to demonstrate the strategies, and providing specific feedback.

    • Reducing challenging behaviours (e.g., self-injury, aggression, property destruction, elopement)  
    • Community safety skills  
    • Abduction prevention
