About Our Services and Clinicians
Trumpet Behavioral Health Provides Leading ABA Therapy for Autism and Related Disorders for Humboldt, California and the Surrounding Areas
We are dedicated to providing effective and developmentally appropriate ABA therapy for autism and related disorders. We are committed to offering family-focused services for children with autism spectrum disorders and improving the quality of life for those that we serve. This means basing our treatment on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), as well as providing speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, and social groups.
Because each child is unique, our ABA therapy for autism and related disorders is tailored to meet each child’s need. This can include using a combination of discrete trial teaching (DDT), social skills training, functional behavior training, picture exchange communication systems, visual supports, and other techniques.
We believe in working as a collaborative team with families and school districts in order to provide comprehensive and consistent services to the child. We also value providing tools to educate and train both parents and school staff.
