Center-Based ABA Therapy
Evoke Behavioral Health's Center-Based ABA program serves children in Colorado diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other Developmental Disabilities. The program utilizes the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and the power of positive reinforcement to help build important skills and decrease challenging behavior. Within our ABA program, the staff to client ratio is 2:1 up to 1:4, depending on the individualized needs of each child.
Our ABA programs target specific skills to develop with your child that will serve as building blocks for their success as they age and grow. Communication, learner readiness, self-help, executive functioning, social and play skills are all an integral part of the program and critical for each child's development.
Evoke's center-based ABA program offers schedules appropriate for each child's individual therapeutic needs and their family's busy schedule. Our center serves school-aged children and all learning areas are grouped by age to allow for age-appropriate socialization.
Independent Educational Evaluations
An Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE) is a type of private evaluation conducted by a third-party professional in a child's current educational setting (public school, private school, home school). The state of Colorado defines an IEE as, "an evaluation conducted by a qualified examiner who is not employed by the public agency responsible for the education of the child in question." (34 C.F.R. 300.502(a)(3)(i)). An IEE can be requested by a parent or caregiver at any time to help caregivers know more about their child's needs in an educational setting regarding academics, behavior, social-emotional, cognitive, and sensory needs.
Evoke Behavioral Health's team of Board-Certified Behavior Analysts will conduct a full evaluation that may include (but is not limited to): Observation(s) in the home and school setting, interviews with parents, caregivers, educators, and other service providers, formal assessments, and records reviews of previous or current documentation. The Caregiver requesting the Evaluation will receive a report including a summary of current needs, services, and achievements, as well as recommendations for future success.

Evoke Behavioral Health is licensed by the State of Colorado as a Day Treatment Center. This means that we can formally provide your child's educational services in-center, adjacent to their center-based ABA services.
Children who are enrolled in Day Treatment at Evoke Behavioral Health may be placed in our School-Alternative Program by their school district if that child is not able to receive the support needed for success within their neighborhood school classroom. We are also able to support and supplement Home Schooling curricula for students who are currently homeschooled.
We utilize a variety of data-based curricula to create an educational plan that is tailored to fit your child's needs. The academic areas we prioritize include (but are not limited to) functional communication, group participation skills, independent work, math, reading, technology, and problem-solving.
