ABA Therapy

Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) is the most well-known behavioral therapy based on extensive research of learning and behavior. ABA uses evidence-based strategies for developing positive skills and behaviors, while reducing challenging behaviors. ABA helps individuals gain and improve skills for success in home, school, work, and the community for their life today, as well as in their future.

ABA is effective for individuals with autism and those with pediatric feeding disorders, severe destructive behavior, and traumatic brain injury.

ABA straegies are based on:

  • Individualized Assessment & Plans
  • Systematic Instruction
  • Concrete Steps
  • Positive Reinforcement
  • Skills Practice
  • Data Informed
  • Family Support
