Centre Based ABA


The welcoming and caring Abacus team provide centre-based early intervention for autistic children. Individual programs are designed in consultation with families and delivered in a fun, playful, learning environment.



When a child is welcomed into the Abacus circle we take the time to get to know their strengths, interests and learning needs. We believe a successful early intervention program is built on the recognition of their individuality and uniqueness. It is very important to listen to the family and understand each child’s needs.

Following discussion with parents and observation of the student, our clinical team carry out a thorough assessment. The students age, stage of development, the number of weekly teaching hours and any family goals related to the child’s functioning within the home environment are all taken into account when determining the aims and strategies of their program.

Each customised and comprehensive one-to-one therapy session is designed to best meet the students needs according to their learning style. Positive relationships are built with the student and their therapy team, making sessions both enjoyable and productive. Every month our team continue to adapt and improve the child’s program to best suit their needs.



Parent training is a crucial part of an effective therapy program. Once a student begins, parents will receive regular training specific to their child at strategy review sessions and are invited to observe therapy or take home video footage to view.

We also provide an open and caring environment where parents can connect with other families in a similar situation.



Early intervention students at Abacus can attend up to 30 hours of therapy per week. Half-day or full day sessions are available. 

Students can attend the centre from the age of two, and additional therapy can also be provided at childcare, kinder and school as clinically recommended. 

Our centre-based service is located in Hastings on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.
