In our Hope Reach program, we open minds by providing 25-40 hours per week per child of intense Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy focusing on language, behavioral, social, and cognitive skills. We are currently providing an average of 2100 hours of therapy per week. Hope Reach is the only nonprofit provider of this therapy in Upstate South Carolina.
Hope Reach provides in-home and in-school treatment in Greenville, Spartanburg, Pickens, Anderson, Union, and Cherokee counties. Clinical services are available in Woodruff, SC.
Hope Reach uses a team approach when providing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services. Each child’s treatment team consists of:
- 2-5 line therapists who work one-on-one in blocks of 2-3 hours,
- A lead therapist who provides weekly hands-on assistance and feedback, and
- A Board Certified supervisor who develops and monitors the child’s individualized plan; and
- Family members who implement the plan in “real life” situations outside of therapy.
To ensure that each child’s time is used efficiently, the treatment team (including family members) meet to evaluate the plan every 2-4 weeks.
