Family Favorites: Paragon Autism Services

Paragon Autism Services provides important services to children diagnosed with autism, developmental delays and intellectual disabilities. Its aim is to assist clients and their families with educational advocacy, family training, skill-building programs, treatment plans, and more.

The program offers intensive one-on-one Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy in community and home settings for people ages 2 through 21. ABA, a scientifically validated approach for children with autism, is used to efficiently teach functional skills, improve behavior through the manipulation of environmental factors and assist with communication, self-help and socialization skills.

Each client works with a behavior specialist for 10 to 25 hours a week. Additionally, families are provided biweekly training sessions where they are taught how to improve their child’s skills and reduce inappropriate behaviors.

Treatment plans are developed with the help of other specialists, such as medical professionals, occupational therapists, physical therapists, respite workers and speech therapists. Additionally, the program’s staff ensures educational support by attending school IEP meetings, suggesting goals and objectives, and observing in school settings.

Paragon Autism Services serves families in the counties of Caroline, King George, Prince William, Spotsylvania, Stafford and the city of Fredericksburg.
