Services provided

Spectrum Learning Center specializes in providing early intervention services that are rooted in applied behavior analysis (ABA). Early intervention ABA begins with a comprehensive intake process to identify each client’s strengths and areas in need of support. Based on an intake, we work with the client and their family/stakeholders to select and prioritize goals. Once we have agreed upon goals, we will develop an individualized program to help the client and their family work towards those goals. Spectrum Learning Center provides center-based services – following the initial assessment, clients will receive early intervention ABA at Spectrum Learning Center, located on the University of Nevada, Reno main campus. Spectrum Learning Center will also supplement center-based services with support in the client’s home and community. We involve the client and their family in every step of the early intervention process to ensure that we are providing the highest quality services.

All services are highly individualized for each client. Some common areas for support include:

  • Language and communication
  • Play
  • Managing routines
  • Toileting
  • Self-care skills
  • Addressing minor challenging behavior

Spectrum Learning Center also provides consultation services on a case-by-case basis. Consultation services will primarily take place in the home/community and will focus on short-term collaborations with the client and their family/stakeholders.

Accepted insurance

Spectrum Learning Center does not currently accept insurance. We do offer a self-pay program, and Spectrum Learning Center is a proud partner of the Sierra Kids Foundation (SKF). SKF provides financial assistance to families of children receiving ABA services. Visit the Sierra Kids Foundation website to apply for assistance or to donate.
