Established in 2013, we were the first early intervention provider in Victoria to deliver Verbal Behaviour ABA programs all closely supervised by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA). We specialise in providing bespoke intensive early intervention programs based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) for young children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Central to our philosophy is providing only high quality ABA because we really do care about your child’s outcomes. All programs must be closely supervised by internationally recognised experts in ABA.
We know that every child is different, there’s no one size or single location that works for every family. We want to build a team and a schedule that suits your needs.
All Happy Oak families require BCBA supervision and fifteen hours ABA with Happy Oak Behaviour Interventionists. Your Happy Oak BIs can be Senior or a more Junior BI depending on your budget. The consistent and close involvement of a BCBA and Happy Oak BIs allows us to ensure the quality and integrity of your child’s program. You may want to have an entire team of Happy Oak BIs undertaking 20 hours ABA per week, or you might choose to do sessions yourself as a parent BI, hire freelance BIs, or a mix which changes over time to make up your child’s intensive ABA program.
At Happy Oak we want to find an intensive ABA program for your child that suits the needs of your unique situation. The evidence is clear – children achieve better outcomes with 20-40 hour per week ABA programs. We want to work with you to help make this happen.
