In Center Sessions

Program Goals

Our goal is to teach valuable life skills that help our clients become productive and fulfilled adults in mainstream society.

 

SOS will create individualized programs to help your child develop through all the skills sets shown to the right.

 

Our behavior therapists will motivate changes in behavior through play and reward systems. Our two main goals are to help your child acquire new skills and reduce problem behavior.

SOS Medcenter Houston
In Center Sessions

Our nautical centers are open Monday through Friday 8:00am-4:00pm, year-round.

 

Choose to attend full-time or part-time.

 

In-center clients are not required to be vaccinated or potty-trained to attend. 

Class lesson

Our centers are designed to get your child “school ready”. Staff-to-student ratios are always 1:1. 

 

Early learners learn language skills, establish a daily routine, and to follow directions. We also offer potty training and food programs.

 

Advanced children practice compliance, independence skills, and social skills that will allow them to be included with their future school peers.

 

Children with aggression or emotional outbursts are taught self-calming strategies.

Art Class

We believe that learning shouldn’t just occur at a desk located in a cold treatment room, but in a variety of environments and locations. Children learn best when they are having fun! We design our program to deliver a happy experience. Children are motivated to interact with our staff, which encourages the learning process.

 

Each new lesson is taught through individual play and practiced in a peer group. Our technicians integrate sensory activities to engage a child’s attention and incorporate group games to encourage social interaction.

 

Throughout the day, children build transition tolerance by moving into different rooms. Our centers are equipped with private staterooms, mock classrooms, art rooms, playrooms and more!  

field trips

Success On The Spectrum’s ABA program also incorporates field trips!

 

Each lesson learned within our center is practiced in different environments for generalization. Field trips also promote transition tolerance by associating fun activities with new settings.

 

Parents and siblings are encouraged to come along on field trips, but are not required to. 

SOS Parent Viewing Room

Safety is a priority. All centers have restricted access to children’s areas.

 

Each center is equipped with state-of-the-art video surveillance systems. Parents are welcome to enjoy our viewing room, where you can discreetly watch your child and therapist working together.

parent meeting

When it comes to righting a child’s ship, we need all hands on deck!

 

Parent involvement is a requirement. Each week, we will provide a caregivers training session. We can help implement a routine that will ease your daily struggles. We will also help establish functional communication between you and your child.

 

We will teach parents, grandparents, siblings and babysitters to mange problem behaviors at home.

Our Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) will frequently meet with you to discuss your child’s progress.

In addition, all of your child’s medical records will be stored on our secure Catalyst website. You will be given a username and password. You can log in at any time to view your child’s progress graphs.

Center Arrangements

While in our center, children are grouped according to their developmental abilities,

so that higher functioning children do not mimic the behaviors of those with fewer social skills.

Progress is celebrated as children “graduate” from one crew to the next!

Crew Ocean

Children requiring very substantial support. Usually children who have very little communication skills or aggressive behaviors.

 

Crew Ocean spends the majority of the day in their private stateroom, and attends short group activities throughout the day.

Crew Voyagers

Children requiring substantial support. Usually children who have some verbal language skills.

 

Crew Voyagers share a stateroom with another child or learn in a mock classroom. The majority of the day is spent in groups with lots of social interaction.

Crew Sailors

Children requiring support. Usually children who have high levels of verbal language and already attend school.

 

Crew Sailors focus primarily on social skills in a group setting. Children practice conversation skills, good sportsmanship, and positive self-concept.
