What is ABA?
ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) is the scientifically supported approach to improving human behavior. The goal of ABA therapy is to increase communication, independent living skills, age-appropriate social skills, and decrease maladaptive behaviors while teaching functional replacement behaviors. All of our programs are designed based on the individual client's needs and the lifestyle of the family. We incorporate the following evidenced based interventions into our individualized therapy:
• Discrete Trial Training
• Verbal Behavior
• Natural Environment Teaching
• Mand Training
• Social Skills Training
• Pivotal Response Training
ABA is currently the only autism therapy recommended for long-term benefit by the United States Surgeon General.
Therapy is conducted in your child'snatural environment.
ABA has been supported by research demonstrating its effectiveness since the 1960s. The principals guiding this therapy have been proven, time and time again.
ABA is covered by most insurance plans, meaning your child can receive the services he/she needs, without the burden of expenses.
Parents/caregivers are involved with the therapy through ongoing training and consultation.
ABA therapy is meant to be intensive to maximize treatment effectiveness, meaning therapy hours can range from 10-40 hours per week.
