ABA Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy

What is ABA Therapy?

ABA, or “Applied Behavior Analysis,” is the standard of care for the treatment of autism spectrum disorders. ABA therapy is rooted in the scientific study of the principles of learning and behavior. In ABA therapy, we use specialized assessment methods to understand what motivates your child. We then use this motivation to teach your child socially significant behaviors. For more information, go to www.bacb.com.

Who is eligible for ABA Therapy?

ABA therapy has been shown to benefit a wide range of populations but is most consistently recognized as a treatment for autism spectrum disorders. Any individual needing to improve in a developmental or behavioral area would be considered “eligible” for ABA therapy. Some insurance companies will limit coverage to those individuals who hold an autism spectrum diagnosis.

Our Approach

We provide families who have children with special needs, the opportunity to improve the independence, inclusion, and overall quality of life of their child. We do this through evidence-based, pragmatic treatment, consultation and teaching based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis.

What skills are targeted in an ABA therapy program?

• Toilet training

• Adaptive living skills (including feeding, dressing, bathing, etc.)

• Expressive language (including labeling objects, people, and emotions)

• Receptive language (including following directions, selecting objects from a greater field)

• Play & leisure skills (including how to play with toys, expanding interests outside of electronics)

• Social skills (including initiating conversations, responding to questions from peers, engaging in interactive play)

• Basic academic and pre-academic skills

• Ready-to-learn behaviors (including sitting in a chair at a desk or table, refraining from grabbing materials when presented and looking at the instructor)
