We are the only ABA program in the Panhandle to provide in-home and in-clinic services. ECAP serves children diagnosed with (or presenting symptoms of) developmental delays or disabilities, including: autism spectrum disorders, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and intellectual disabilities.
ECAP is a non-profit (501(c) 3) early intervention and community outreach program. Our program has an approved practicum placement for graduate students enrolled in the Florida State University Master’s Program in Applied Behavior Analysis.
ABA and Autism
More than 40 years of research support the use of ABA to teach children with developmental disabilities. Additionally, it is now widely acknowledged that ABA is the treatment of choice for children with an autism spectrum disorder.
We recognize that each child is unique and that different techniques work for different children. We pride ourselves in developing individualized, research-based programs for each client.
Autism spectrum disorders are characterized by:
- Impaired social interaction
- Impaired communication skills
- Restricted/repetitive patterns of behavior
Symptoms vary individually per child.
