Success Stories

Paths to Recovery

These examples below are just some of our success stories at ARN.

“...was completely non-verbal when he came to us.”*
Andy was 20 months old when he started ABA-VB therapy at ARN. He had speech delay and was completely non-verbal when he came to us. He could neither imitate nor produce any sound. However, after just a month of ABA-VB therapy, he started to imitate sounds. After two months, he was able to independently reproduce those sounds that he learnt by imitation. By the sixth month of therapy, he was able to articulate words clearly. His child development paediatrician advised his parents to put him in regular school as he had reached the normal stage of speech development for his age.”*

“She was not speaking...”*
“Samantha started with us when she was only two years old. Her parents were worried as she was still not speaking at that point. Her speech was unintelligible and marked by inappropriate and incoherent sounds that confused her parents. After three months of intensive ABA-VB therapy, she started articulating words accurately. Since then, she has greatly expanded her vocabulary and is adept at speaking to her parents, teachers and peers. She is now four years old and able to construct and say whole sentences. She enjoys playing with her peers and engages in conversations with them spontaneously. Her old habit of making inappropriate sounds has also gone away in the course of therapy.”*

“He had major behavioural problems...”*
"When Evan started ABA-VB therapy with us, he was already six years old. This was a rather late age for intervention. He had major behavioural problems, such as crying hysterically whenever he did not get what he wanted, becoming violent when he was upset, frequently throwing tantrums and refusing to cooperate even for simple requests. We started ‘mand-training’ with him, which helped him learn how to request for things he wanted using words and sentences. After one week, he was able to use simple words such as ‘open’ to ask his therapist to open the container for him to get his snack and ‘go out’ when he wanted to go and play. Now, at the age of seven, he is able to tell his therapist what he wants in complete sentences such as “Teacher Mary, I want to play puzzle”. He is also able to greet and bid goodbye to therapists and his parents with ease. His undesirable behaviour has also diminished; he no longer displays disruptive behaviour in class and group sessions.”*
