If your child is exhibiting some of the behaviors described below, he or she may suffer from ASD and benefit from ABA Therapy.
Better Outcomes, Brighter Futures.
ABA Therapy is a scientifically proven method that uses principles and techniques to bring about meaningful changes in behavior. Some people contend that ABA teaches children to be robotic; that’s a misconception. It’s all reliant on the proficiency of the therapists teaching it.
Simply put, skills are broken down into small steps, and the child is given recurring opportunities to learn and practice these skills. ABA therapy can be provided in structured sessions, naturally occurring activities, or contrived situations. A BCBA designs an ABA Treatment Plan and then trains and supervises the ABA therapists.
Because every child has his or her own set of educational challenges, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to learning. We embrace the diverse rainbow of colors which comprise the spectrum of ASD and works closely with your child to bring about positive changes in behavior... in a most radiant way.
Having a child diagnosed with ASD can be very challenging, but there’s hope. Master Faster has an exemplary track record of helping children across New York State master critical life skills and conduct productive, fulfilling lives. The key is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy – a highly recommended and clinically validated method used to teach children with autism.
Featuring high rates of success in teaching fundamental skill to individual with ASD, ABA is now covered by many health insurance policies when there is an official ASD diagnosis present as a primary or secondary diagnosis. Our skilled therapists can thoroughly evaluate your child and customize an intervention program to meet his or her skills, needs and preferences.
Here is a basic outline of the ABA methods we use to help each child:
We observe your child’s behavior in different settings to formulate an accurate understanding of his current strengths and weaknesses.
We assess your child’s level of function through formal testing.
We work with your child on life skills according to your child’s needs; programs may include goals such as tying shoes, grocery shopping, brushing teeth, personal hygiene, learning how to have a conversation with siblings, neighbors and friends, and related tasks.
We will train your family to deal with problematic behaviors, and how to apply newly acquired skills.
We develop and customize a treatment plan with appropriate goals.
We track and report your child’s progress on an ongoing basis.
Some pray for a brighter future. We help your child get there.Devorah S. - Master Faster Student
“I was always considered a problematic child. My teachers and parents didn’t know how to deal with my issues. The problems just got worse and I was about to be thrown out of school. Through Master Faster, I was seen by a specialist to determine if there was an underlying ASD Diagnosis. Master Faster helped us select insurance coverage, and implemented an effective ABA Treatment Plan. I am now in a regular school and doing well. ABA Therapy has been decreased and I’m about to be completely discharged.”
Some wait for aid. We provide it.Esther K. - Master Faster Parent
“It was so embarrassing and difficult to walk with my daughter on the street. She would scream, throw tantrums and sit down whenever we would walk -- even a short distance. The ABA Programs positively reinforced her walking skills daily and she can now walk places amazingly well. Her PT didn’t think it was safe for her to walk stairs independently, but thanks to Master Faster, she learned how.”

“As a school teacher, and BCBA, I was pained that a student in my class had a difficult time managing his behavior – to the point where his parents didn’t want to keep him home. Two months after Master Faster started his home program, he stopped running around the house and became more connected. The family saw their child’s potential and, thankfully, decided to keep him at home.”
