Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis, or ABA, is derived from behavior analysis, the science of behavior. This science of behavior has a history extending back to the early 20th century and is based upon behaviorism. ABA has been empirically shown to be effective in a wide variety of areas, and has a very large evidence base in the treatment of individuals diagnosed with Autism. The features of ABA interventions have been defined since 1968. The practice of ABA is a profession. Well-established, accredited credentialing programs for practitioners of ABA are managed by the nonprofit Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB).

When a child struggles to acquire skills, our therapists utilize Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy to teach a wide variety of skills, including language, academic, and social skills. This treatment method pinpoints the needed skill, constructs a manageable process, and then helps the child to learn steps towards implementing these steps in their natural setting. 

Therapy is provided by our trained therapists under the supervision of  our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA).  

THERAPY

We are a center based ABA center that provided both 1:1 therapy and small groups activities with the focus on preparing your child for school and community.   

TREATMENT PLANS THAT TARGET...

We honor the personal needs of the individual. Each child is treated individually in their ABA therapy.  Working with the family, the BCBA determines the needs of the child and works with a staff of therapist to oversee and administer therapy options under a unique and personalized plan for that child.
