Imua Autism Services

Imua Autism Services works with children up to 6 years old using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).  ABA is an evidence-based, therapy that focuses on improving social skills, communication and human behavior and is an effective method to help children with autism and other developmental disabilities learn the skills they need to move forward.

Imua Family Services understand that each child learns differently.   Our goal is to provide an interactive, fun, play-based learning program.  We take a collaborative approach incorporating family members and caregivers to develop a comprehensive plan. We work to personalize educational programs for both the child and parents using interviews, observations and natural environment assessments.

Imua Family Services also provides ABA services through our Therapeutic Preschool and Kindergarten Readiness Program.

Therapeutic Preschool: 8am-2pm Monday-Friday

Our Therapeutic Preschool model provides children the opportunity to build their skills such as waiting, taking turns, communication (both speaking and listening), peer interaction in a fun, play-based environment.  We mimic a preschool schedule with circle time, monthly themes for learning, group activities, group lunches, snack times and breakaway individual teaching.

Kindergarten Readiness Program:
2:30pm-5:30pm  Monday-Friday

This group is for children who require additional support in continuing to build their social and language skills in a fun, supportive and goal-oriented setting.  Some areas that may be focused on include: learning to play, sharing, turn-taking, communication with others, expressing feelings appropriately, etc.
