Embracing Growth: Inspiring Families with the Nautilus Approach.
Our Mission: To positively impact as many lives as possible through the delivery of exceptional ABA therapy!
The Nautilus logo represents our approach to working with families, reflecting the growth and development we strive for. Like the unique marine animal, the nautilus, its spiral-shaped shell symbolizes something deeper. Internally, the shell is divided into chambers that expand as the nautilus matures, preventing regression. Living in the depths of the ocean under immense pressure, the nautilus maintains its beautiful spiral shape, just as our families continue to grow and develop. At Adapt for Life, we embrace individual starting points and support forward progress, just like the Nautilus.
With dedicated staff and powerful ABA therapy, we encourage adaptation and resilience, reminding ourselves that growth, learning, and adaptation are lifelong journeys. The nautilus is our reminder of how strong and resilient we can be, and how we can withstand outside pressures while continuing to grow into our own person. It is our reminder that we will never stop growing, we will never stop learning, and we will never stop adapting.
What Is ABA?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) uses the scientific principles of learning and motivation in order to effectively teach children. It focuses on the idea that the consequences of what we do affect what we learn and what we do in the future.
- Language (i.e., requesting, tact/expressive, listening responder/receptive, following directions)
- Imitation Skills
- Gross/Fine Motor Skills
- Visual/Perceptual Skills (e.g., puzzles, matching, sorting)
- Activities of Daily Living (e.g., toileting, dressing, and brushing teeth)
- Social and Independent Play Skills
- Community Skills (e.g., crossing the street safely, grocery shopping and cooking)
- Reading and Writing
- Any repetitive/stereotypic behaviors
- And many more maladaptive behaviors
