What Is ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the leading approach to improving the developmental deficiencies associated with autism. ABA therapy is likely able to improve the quality of life of your child and help them reach their full potential. Endorsed by the U.S. Surgeon General, ABA therapy focuses on human behavior and is able to increase desirable behavior and minimize unwanted behaviors.

What we Do

What Is ABA?

Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) has been endorsed by a number of state and federal agencies, including the U.S Surgeon General.

It is an evidence-based treatment approach that is data-driven; it uses techniques and principles to bring about meaningful and positive changes in behavior.

Data is collected on target behaviors, analyzed by the BCBA and behavior therapists. Then, therapy decisions are made based on trends contained within in data.

Since the early 1960’s, ABA, has been used by hundreds of therapists to help children with autism by teaching communication, play, social, academic, self-care, work and community living skills and by reducing problem behaviors in learners with autism.

HOW IT WORKS

The ABA Process

Step 1

ABA targets the learning of skills and the reduction of challenging behaviors.

Step 2

Each skill is broken down into small steps, and taught using prompts, which are gradually eliminated as the steps are mastered.

Step 3

The child is given repeated opportunities to learn and practice each step in a variety of settings.

Step 4

Each time the child achieves the desired result, he receives positive reinforcement.

Step 5

Skills are broken down into manageable pieces and built upon so that a child learns how to learn in a natural environment.

Step 6

If the child isn’t making satisfactory progress, adjustments are made.

BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY…

Is ABA Therapy right for my child?

Absolutely! ABA works well because well because the therapy is catered specifically to your child’s needs and each child is different.

It focuses on introducing and building skills and positive behaviors, changing existing behaviors, and eliminating inappropriate behaviors.

Research has shown that ABA is more effective with early intervention, but there are no age limits.

It can be more difficult to change established patterns and behaviors in older children, but even adults can still benefit from ABA Therapy.
