What is ABA?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the most empirically validated treatment for behavior change- especially for those diagnosed with severe behavior disorders. Extensive data is collected and analyzed to determine goal progress in addition to the efficacy of interventions. ABA has been proven effective in shaping nearly every aspect of adaptive behavior, including learning, speech, social interaction, and self-help skills.

Our Approach
Initially, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) behavior will assess an individual to learn more about interfering problem behaviors and their functional skills, and the BCBA will also assess the function of problem behavior and determine appropriate replacement behavior. This information will be included in a behavior plan that is individualized for each individual. Behavior goals typically target the reduction of interfering behaviors, increasing appropriate replacement behaviors, and the improvement of functional skill deficits. An important part of ABA is data collection and analysis as that data will drive decisions regarding interventions.
