Comprehensive Early Autism Services (CEAS) is a behavioral consulting firm that provides intensive, individualized home-based ABA therapy (Applied Behavior Analysis) for children with autism and their families living in the Chicagoland area. It is the mission of CEAS to see each child that we work with reach their full potential in every area of development.
CEAS prides itself on having the expertise that comes from years of direct experience. Dr. Smagner has over a decade of experience developing and implementing effective, high-quality ABA programs. Our programs draw on this expertise, while also relying on the ever growing body of research surrounding effective autism treatment.
We design individualized, empirically based ABA programs for children with autism and other developmental and behavior disorders. These programs address skill deficits across many developmental domains, including language, social and communication skills, self-help, play, and academic skills.Read More
We provide consultation for all children learning to use the toilet. For children receiving intensive ABA programming, toilet training is just one of the many self-help skills we successfully teach. This is a specialized, multi-step process that begins with careful observation and the development of a specific success plan.Read More
We provide consultation and treatment for children who need assistance during meal times. Many children with autism engage in inappropriate behaviors during meal times and may engage in food selectivity, consuming a limited variety of foods. Parents may find their child will only eat crunchy foods, hot or cold foods, or foods of a specific color, texture, or brand.Read More
