What is ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the science of behavior. Behavior analysis helps us to understand how behavior works and the influence the environment has on behavior. Since the 1960’s ABA therapy has been used to teach numerous skills to children with autism and other related developmental disorders. Skill areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Communication
  • Social Skills
  • Learning & Academic
  • Play & Leisure
  • Motor
  • Self-Help/Adaptive

How does In-Home ABA therapy work?

Applied Behavior Analysis implements many techniques to teach skills and increase behaviors that are helpful and decrease behaviors that are harmful or create barriers to learning. ABA is individualized so that each individual’s treatment plan addresses their specific needs. We begin therapy in the comfort of your home. The BCBA and therapists will assist your child in developing skills and reducing any challenging behaviors in their natural setting. We also will provide support in your community and school environments when goals extend to outside of the home.
