For children with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, daily activities and interactions can be challenging, and in many different ways. Our registered behavior technicians (RBTs) work one-on-one with clients, implementing a personalized behavior plan that utilizes Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy. ABA is based on the principles of how children learn combined with natural-environment settings and actions, helping clients reach their goals. Our therapists utilize treatment plans developed by a BCBA (Board-Certified Behavior Analyst) that incorporate client goals, needs, and interventions. ABA is an in-depth therapy that necessitates adherence to a regular weekly schedule.
Applied Behavior Analysis, or ABA, is a therapeutic method that focuses on improving specific behaviors such as social skills, communication, reading, academics, as well as adaptive learning skills. Our ABA program is play-based and aids children in gaining behavioral skills through one-on-one interactions with a therapist, as well as by playing with other children.
ABA has been declared an evidence based therapy method by the American Psychological Association, which means that it has been scientifically tested and proven to be effective. A multitude of clinical studies performed have concluded that long-term and intensive ABA therapy improves the intellectual and social functioning, language development, and daily living skills for many children with autism.
ABA Therapy has been used to help children with autism since the 1960s!
