What is ABA?
ABA therapy is considered an evidence based best practice treatment by the US surgeon general and the American Psychological association. This approach to behavior change is data driven, meaning decisions about treatment are based on each client’s individual progress. Because everyone with Autism is unique, each client will progress at different speeds and in different ways. We closely monitor our client’s progress and constantly adapt their program to fit their needs. ABA is based on learning theory and is a very optimistic approach to understanding human behavior. Behavior analysts use techniques derived from basic principles of behavior to understand how behavior is learned and how it can be changed to positively impact an individual’s life. In this way, we are able to address the communication, social, and behavioral deficits that are commonly seen in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
What is the goal of ABA therapy?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is considered one of the most effective treatments for individuals with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities. ABA therapy can help increase desired behaviors and decrease undesired behaviors.
